Wordle #155

Here is this week’s challenge:

1. Never
2. Chair
3. Keta (n. an image that inexplicably leaps back into your mind from the distant past.)
4. Shard
5. Thirteen
6. Short
7. Color
8. Weed
9. Engulf
10. Magnitude
11. Disgrace
12. Elusive

The living conditions were a disgrace and elusive memories came flooding back as the keta of a school bully cut like a shard through his consciousness.
Such was the magnitude of its intrusion, he would never have imagined the person before him in a wheelchair was one and the same.
As a kid, he’d always been short for his age until at thirteen he’d suddenly shot up to reach his present six feet two inches. 
Looking up, the chair’s occupant coloured with embarrassment and recognition.
‘Hello Weed,’ he said.
‘Hi Bryan,’ he replied, engulfed in a wave of pity for his childhood tormentor.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A good story – and often so true, that one’s childhood tormentor is nothing to speak of in adulthood.
