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:
arrest, bystander, crazy, daft, drone, hatred, high, hilt, holiday, hurrah, interest, kick, petulant, protest, shin, shine, shopping, thick, two, visit, worry.
Her friend had said she was crazy, that it would never work, but when the little beast kicked an elderly bystander in the shin whilst in the shopping queue, she’d had enough and made the call.
The police officer escorted the two of them to a private room for a ‘quiet word’ rather than arrest the boy for assault. Keeping his voice to a dull drone, he laid it on thick how this behaviour was unacceptable, that he wouldn’t like to visit a cell overnight as it wasn’t a holiday camp like they depicted on TV.
It was that high five hurrah moment, when finally the petulant child took an interest in what was being said instead of protesting his hatred for authority. He began to realise he could be up to the hilt in trouble and no-one would give a damn or worry about what became of him.
She knew he would never be a shining example in society, but maybe it wasn’t such a daft idea to rope in her boyfriend from the local nick to teach her charge a lesson.
