Our challenge is to write a story using all the words: Continuous, Repeat, and Uncertainty.
Her parents asked her to keep the music volume low so as not to disturb Mrs H next door.
It wasn’t Jen’s fault the old lady was bedridden, or that she faced the uncertainty of ever walking again, but Jen had always been considerate of others, and never turned the knob above 6 on her record player. It was halfway on the dial, so she felt it was a practical compromise, though mostly kept the volume level at 4.
She loved music, and spent some of her Saturday wages on records which she played on continuous repeat. She got to know all the words and would sing along as she twirled and danced to the rhythm, or sat at her desk doing her homework.
Her Mum often went in to see Mrs H and make sure she didn’t need anything, so she was quite surprised one day to find her sitting up in a chair.
‘It’s your Jen!’ Mrs H announced.
Nancy immediately started to apologise for Jen’s music disturbing her, and promised she would ask her to turn the volume down.
‘Oh no! Don’t!.’ Mrs H exclaimed. ‘There’s one song she keeps playing and it’s perfect for my exercises! It started my toes twitching, then tapping, and now I can move my legs! Tell Jen she can turn the volume up if she wishes, and she can have the first dance!’
