This weeks 100 word challenge over at Julia’s http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/100-word-challenge-for-grown-ups-week-35/
is ‘The Red box’ and this is my take on it!
Red Box Versus Tree
It wasn’t exactly a bang, more a low clunk like an Ikea drawer closing.
‘You’re going to die’ he mocked the older sister he was so jealous of, ‘Just wait ‘til . . .’
‘Shut up, I’ll just have to pay’.
‘Yeah, for about seven years, that’s how long he waited for it’.
She couldn’t settle, Luke kept smirking at her. She checked the window every five minutes, eventually the Jack Russell yapped as it chased through the gate. She went outside.
‘Dad . . .’ she sobbed.
‘I saw, don’t cry angel it’s just a red box on wheels’.
