100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week# 126


Julia says, ‘The prompt this week is:


You can take it anywhere you like but only use 100 words.’
Here are mine.

Meeting Uzo

The familiar smell of coach station enveloped me and I pressed my nose against the window hoping to see another self. Nothing. The little belly flutters shifted up a notch, more like a train in a tunnel now. I realised I had to move from my seat, I was last.

There were many black faces in Birmingham coach station, but one stood out.

‘Sis,’ said the big black bear as he wrapped me up. I felt shy as I raised my eyes to meet his, but there was the mirror I’d waited so long for, in the eyes of my newly found brother.

  1. This is excellent, Gilly, especially because I experienced a ‘feeling’ at the end. As well, I like the mystery about the newly f.o.u.n.d. brother. I wonder what the story behind that is. 😀

  2. This is such powerful nugget of a tale. Brilliant. You’ve got all the essential short story ingredients in these very few words: a dilemma/mystery, something that changes, a resolution and a hook for yet another tale.

I would love to hear from you . . .
