Story Starter Challenge: 26th April

Today’s sentence: “No, no that will not do.”

“No, no that will not do. Do it again.’
Sonia went back to her desk clutching her homework in her nail bitten hand.
Miss Ledder was a horrible teacher. She always made her feel silly, awkward and inadequate.
Sonia had no idea yet what she wanted to be, so in all innocence had said she would probably be a couch potato like her Dad as her Mum was always calling him one.
She put her head down, concentrating on keeping her letters within the lines on the paper.
By the time she had finished, she had a page of neat handwriting and took it up to her teacher’s desk.
Miss Ledder snatched it from her and began to read.
Her face softened a little when she read what Sonia now wanted to be when she grew up, then hardened when she read the final line that as a teacher, Sonia would be nicer than Miss Ledder!

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.
