This is my first entry in the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. The prompt is to write from the perspective of the person arrowed in the photo below. The photo was actually originally posted here http://wp.me/p1zqCM-8x on my blog for a weekly photo challenge and it was an honour to be asked by Julia to use it.
So, my hundred words,
No praises of gladness,
So this is Christmas. For these good Christian girls at least. I know I should be grateful, they’ve taken me in, I have a bed now and plenty of food in exchange for some prayers. It won’t hurt me to sing a few songs to the tourists and rattle a tin.
No thought of their sin,
I’ll be safe in KK they would never guess I’d travel so far.
No glory but sadness,
Will there still be room at the Inn when they find out?
You choose now to start with the kicking.
