Time to write: 2nd November

This week Rachel gives us a sentence starter.
‘What happened?’
The room was a mess. The contents of the dresser spilled over the open drawers like a fabric waterfall.
Shoes cluttered the floor and bed, stockings draped from the chair and window blind.
The air was cloudy with talcum powder, which although disguised the smell of old socks, made Abby cough.
Slap bang in the middle of it all was her three year old daughter clutching a ball of writhing fur trying to make its escape.
‘Wasn’t me!’ she sang, smiling that gapped smile that melted the coldest heart.
‘So, what happened?’ Abby repeated.
Meredith giggled and pointed to the cat.
‘She did!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
