This is our challenge this week:
January 25, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that goes to the edge. Consider what the edge might be and how it informs the story. Go where the prompt leads.
There was no point in living. No-one cared and she was convinced she wouldn’t be missed.
She knew this road well, having travelled it practically every day for 4 years.
Each bend was a friend, beckoning her onward.
A mile ahead, a sharp left saved you from careering over the edge into the valley below.
Like her life, it was the edge of sanity or oblivion.
So easy to keep the wheel steady and straight.
She pondered. Is this all she was worth?
And that one word made her turn and follow the road.
He was not worth her life.
