I’ve just come across this, and it sounds intriguing. Thanks to Julia at https://jfb57.wordpress.com/100-word-challenge-for-grown-ups/ for this prompt, and to the Heads Office at https://theheadsoffice.co.uk/category/100-word-challenge/ for the original idea.
The idea of the challenge is that you write 100 words on the chosen theme for the week. The theme for week 157 is ‘At last we were free’.
AT LAST WE WERE FREE
Our escape took the length of a marriage to plan.
And just two minutes to pack for.
I took Susie and Susie took Teddy.
We slipped out the front door while Daddy was out the back. No more raised voices. No more little ‘accidents’. No more lies at the school gate to explain the bruises.
I buckled Susie into the child seat and slid behind the wheel. Put the car in gear and checked the rear view mirror. Nothing to see. No one following. We slipped quietly into the rush hour traffic.
At last we we were free.
