Here is Charli’s challenge this week:
March 2, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) include slag in a story. Slag is a glass-like by-product of smelting or refining ore. Slag is also used in making glass or can result from melting glass. It can be industrious or artistic. Go where the prompt leads.
Respond by March 7, 2017 to be included in the compilation (published March 8). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!
You could see it for miles, this landmark in time, rising up on the horizon as you turned the corner.
Some called it an eyesore, some saw it as a monument to times past, but passing it meant I was twenty five minutes from home, where Love, a cup of tea and a warm bed waited for me.
In my time, it was called Slag Hill, but within ten years, it became just The Hill.
It’s gone now, moved or used for heavens knows what, and the landscape is flat and featureless.
I’m glad I don’t live there anymore.
