Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 16 September 2017

Welcome to Sarah’s Saturday Mix.

Since it is her first ‘Opposing Forces’ challenge, the words this week are:

– first and last

– beginning and end

I could hear the sirens and knew they would be coming for me, but it didn’t matter now.
In the beginning, I had just accepted it for how it was. No underlying reasoning, just a fact of my life that was meant to be and nothing I could do about it.
For years I had been the underdog, the one sitting in the shadows, afraid to open my mouth for fear of ridicule, or worse.
Today was the first time I’d stood up for myself, and the look on his face was one of disbelief as I plunged the knife deep into his vicious heart.
Oh yeah, today was the last time he’d get the better of me, as I’d put an end to his cruelty once and for all.

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.

    Well written! You gave me chills as I read the last few lines. I could certainly feel the antithesis at play today! Thanks for joining in 😃

    Goodness Di, what a dark side you have….but as you say it was the last time and you did put an end to him you could put yourself first and he would not be beginning a new day..
