Take Seven: June 4th

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:
cause, chair, cheer, fault, flag, generous, grow, habit, hate, horn, jolly, leaves, prospect, repeat, script, silly, sinister, solid, stand, tone, waiver.
It was her habit to drink her tea sitting on the chair by the window.
The envelope was written in a now familiar script and she told herself she was silly to allow her good mood to flag even though she knew the letter was unlikely to be jolly or full of good cheer.
Bracing herself, she took the bull by the horns and ripped the envelope open.
Had she been standing, she would have collapsed with the sinister undertones of the wording.
She had always been generous to a fault, but the content was enough to give her cause to hate the sender with a passion that had continued to grow with each letter received.
She swilled the leaves in her cup, inverted it on the saucer and smiled.
There was no solid evidence behind the repeated accusations of embezzlement, and although the prospect of confrontation was daunting, enough was enough. Besides, she could prove the waiver of her lover’s professional fees was legitimate and not a bargaining chip for her silence.

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.
