Take Seven: 13th March

It’s Friday! Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our words were:
anger, blood, bottom, cheek, concern, cough, daily, fault, fight, friend, honey, hostile, key, knee, lift, paw, place, roast, surprise, unhappy, wound
The key to it all had been a discreet cough and word in the right ear. It was a knee jerk reaction that started a turn of events and what once had been honey rich now became a hostile daily roasting.
There had always been a concern, and it was a friend who had placed the seed of doubt in his mind after having the nerve to paw through her private diary when visiting. It was her own fault for leaving it lying around.
Thus it came as an unhappy surprise that she was the cause of his anger. She felt the blood drain from her face and tears threatened to spill down her cheeks. The bottom fell out of her world that night and all the fight went out of her. It opened a raw wound from the past with no chance to lift her spirits. After forty years, it was over.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
