My Dear Sillies,
A very talented and loving lady, Jenny Matlock, used to do a Saturday Centus
exercise. I occasionally participated. This photo was the prompt. The
challenge: using all five senses, write about this in 100 words max.
Here's my story, The Double Dog Dare...
“I double-dog dare ya to go in,” Johnny challenged. He was cute so I acted brave.
I swallowed my jelly bean whole. Salty black-licorice flavor stuck to
my tongue. Entering the creepy old shack, the smell of mud overtook me.
I was blinded by darkness.
A boyish voice came up through the floors’ wooden panels. I noticed a
gaping hole at my feet and felt the sudden firm grip of fingers clasping
my ankles from below.
“Let me go! Help! Help!”
A familiar giggle slowed my pulse.
“Johnny, you poo-poo head! That wasn’t funny!”
