WonHundred Word Wednesday: Drastic Action


Good afternoon, dear readers! Today is Wednesday and I've prepared a 100 word story for your reading pleasure. 

The prompt: More and more people were refusing to obey the laws.

My story:


Sheriff Williams looked out the window over the town center. Even from there, he could see the crime taking place on his streets. Pick pockets, thieves stealing food from the vendors, and illegal sales in dark corners. More and more people were refusing to obey the laws., and as sheriff, the responsibility was his to control it.

He tapped the letter against his hand. It held permission from the king to do something drastic. He'd hoped it wouldn't come to this, such actions would bring the townspeople to their knees. But he'd tried everything else. 

He sighed. It was time.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Terrible News


It's Wednesday again! This post is coming to you late today, but it is here! This week, I'm transporting you back to 1808 in England. Enjoy!

The prompt: He held her close before telling her the terrible news

My story:


Fredrick’s heart pounded as he waited Mr. Gardner’s decision. The old man looked him over, clearly assessing him. Painful seconds ticked by. “No,” he said at last.

“But, sir,” Fredrick began. Gardner glared at him. “If you would please reconsider.”

“My answer is no, no amount of gutless begging will convince me to change my mind. Now get off my land.”

Fredrick snatched his hat and left with haste. He went to the garden where he knew Georgine waited. The hopeful look in her eyes crushed him. He held her close before telling her the terrible news. “He said no.”

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Clearing Ground


Hey readers! Here we are at Wednesday again, can you believe it? Hope you're ready for this week's story!

The Prompt: He itched to clear the ground, to look out and see nothing

My Story:


He itched to clear the ground, to look out and see nothing but forest and lake. Muttering under his breath, he set to work.

Early the next morning, he stood at his window, hiding a smile in his cup of coffee. Smoke and ashes filled the air, but there was no obstruction to his sunrise. The firemen hadn’t arrived in time to save the building. It was the thought of her there with another man that drove him to it. She should have known better then to build a cabin facing his on their split land. She’d know better now.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Not the First Time, Not the Last.


It's Wednesday! Here's my 100 word story for the week!

The prompt: Someone must have seen him, because the police were at his door

My story:


Damien hurried to the sink in the garage. It took three times washing his hands before they came clean. He retrieved the bundle from the car, opened the hidden compartment under a cupboard, and stashed it there before going inside. Red and blue light flashed through his window. Someone must have seen him, because the police were at his door. He wiped his hands on his jeans and took three steadying breaths. Composing his face into a calm expression was easy, he’d done it so often. Charming smile in place, he answered the door. “Hello, officers. Can I help you?”

WonHundred Word Wednesday: The Talk


It's Wednesday, dear readers! Which means I have another flash fiction story for you. 

The prompt: As he opened the car door, there was a loud

My story:


Tim pulled into an open parking spot. “We’re here,” he said. As he opened the car door, there was a loud sigh. Clenching his fist, he looked over at her. “We’re not going to talk about this now.”

“We have to talk about it sooner or later.”

“We’ll do it when we get home, then.”

She rolled her eyes. “I’ve heard that before.”

“Well, it’s not something I really want to talk about.”

She reached across him and pulled his door closed. “We have to do this tonight. If we don’t make a decision, we’ll both be dead by morning.”

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Tension


Hello, dear readers! It's Wednesday and I have another 100 word story for you. 

The prompt: As soon as she walked in, she felt the tension

My story:


Jamie stood outside the doors, her stomach knotting painfully. Could she go through with this? She’d waited her whole life for this moment, and now the fear nearly overwhelmed her. Her hands were cold and sweaty and she rubbed them together fiercely.

The doors opened and music began to play. One last deep breath and she stepped forward.
As soon as she walked in, she felt the tension withdraw. Gary stood at the end of the aisle next to the altar, his smile filling her with peace. This was where she belonged. All fear gone, she walked forward to forever.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Dreaming


Well I missed last week because I had family visiting. But I made up for it today, and thought it was awesome that this week's and last week's prompts went together. So I ran with it and made them part of the same story.  Without further ado, here's my takes on the prompts.

Last week's prompt: As the dream faded, she chased it, forlorn

My story:


He stood a ways away, as he always did. The smile on his face as they grew near made her heart falter. They stopped just short of each other, as they always did.

“I’m so glad you’re here!”

“Did you think I wouldn’t come?” He asked.

“I never know when, or if, I’ll see you again.”

“I know.” He said with a sad smile, reaching for her.

The air shimmered around them. “Not again!” she cried.

“I’m sorry!” He reached for her again, but everything went dark.

As the dream faded, she chased it, forlorn, longing for him in reality.



This week's prompt: The stranger before him looked exactly like the girl he'd dreamt about.

My story:


He walked down the crowded street, rubbing his eyes. Once he’d woken from the dream, he hadn’t been able to get back to sleep. He mumbled under his breath. Why had he reached for her? Every time they tried to touch, the dream disappeared, and so did she.

He was so distracted, he ran into someone. “I’m sorry!” he cried.

He gasped when he looked up. The stranger before him looked exactly like the girl he’d dreamed about. When he looked into her eyes, he could see her recognition. “At last!” he whispered, before pressing his lips firmly to hers.


I hope you liked them, I had fun writing them! Check out the other stories too:

WonHundred Word Wednesday: When she opened the door

At last! I'm caught up (with recent prompts anyway) and have a wonderful story for you this week. And as a bonus you get to read my brother's take on the prompt too! Here we go!

The prompt: When she opened the door, she wished

My story: 


A knock roused Sage from her thoughts. A glance at the clock told her it was late and she should’ve been up hours ago. But heartbreak makes you do things like stay in bed all morning and eat chocolate all night. She’d been so sure of her future, so sure he’d want her forever. Being wrong had never hurt more.

When she opened the door, she wished she’d at least gotten dressed. She could see her own sadness reflected in his eyes. Without a word he reached for her, smothering her pain with a kiss full of apologies and promise.


Corey's story: 


She pulled the keys out of the ignition, hands sweating. What am I going to tell him? She sat in the car for a few moments, trying and failing to dispel her nerves.

Well…it’s not going to get better if I wait longer.

She finally left the car and walked, almost trembling, to the house. She took a steadying breath, then grabbed the doorknob and twisted.

When she opened the door, she wished she were anywhere else. He looked right into her eyes with a look of anger and disappointment.

He knows.

She looked down. “I got a speeding ticket.”


For some reason, his story makes me think of our little sister. :) Not that's she's ever had a speeding ticket, but still.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Lock in the dark

Here's another make up one faithful readers!

The prompt: She felt for the lock in the dark.

My story:


When Alaina opened her eyes, she wasn’t even sure she actually had. The darkness surrounding her was as black as her sleep had been. Her eyes refused to adjust, and her legs wobbled as she stood. The rough walls scratched her palms as she searched for a light finding none. At last the stone smoothed into what felt like a door. She felt for the lock in the dark, but the door was bare. No lock, no handle.

Panic set in, her mind racing. Only one person would do this to her. The question was: how had he found her?

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Just a fling



Hey everyone, I've been a slacker again and needed to catch up, so here's my story from two weeks ago. Check it out!

The prompt: It would only be a fling.

My story:



It would only be a fling. Just a harmless little fling. She repeated this mantra repeatedly, convincing herself it was true.

Though a corner of her mind whispered it was false. Muttered that if she indulged, even just this once, the repercussions could be dreadful. Or they could be blissful and sweet. She eyed the temptation, weighing the consequences. The lies, the money, the relaxation, the peace.

Taking a deep breath, she pushed the confirm button on the Hawaiian vacation package. The plane would leave tomorrow. Exhilaration filled her as she called her boss, trying her best to sound sick.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: House wasn't the same


It's a little late on Wednesday, but it's still Wednesday! Here's my story for the day!

The prompt: The house wasn't the same to her any more

My Story:


Rachel watched from the corner as the couple entered the room. She could feel the anger rising steadily in her chest. Their belongings were piled everywhere, careless of the time and energy she’d put into the home. Her heart and soul had gone into designing it, yet fate’s cruel hand had taken it away.

The house wasn't the same to her any more, and with those people here, it never would be. She’d have to make them leave and ensure that no one would move in again.

She wasn’t worried. After all, no one wants to live with a ghost.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: The attack


It's Wednesday!! Here's my newest 100 word story, and the prompt is a great one!

The prompt: The attack was over in seconds

My story:


It hit hard, completely blindsiding her. A tidal wave brought on by the smallest pebble dropped into the pool of desire.

The attack was over in seconds, but once she started she found it impossible to stop. Weeks of progress lost in only a few moments.

A groan escaped her lips as she thought of the repercussions.

She lay on her back, one hand draped over her eyes, the other clenching her stomach. The empty bag sat crumpled beside her, a reminder of her lack of self-control.

“Curse you M&M’s!” she whispered, even as she wished for just one more.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Blind Date


Hey friends! Ir's WonHundred Word Wednesday, which means here's another bit of flash fiction! Enjoy!

The prompt: He was older than she'd thought he would be

My story:


Janette studied each table until she found the one with the yellow rose. The walk to the table seemed endless; she’d never been on a blind date before, much less with someone she met online.

“Hi, you must be Marco.” She said.

He was older than she'd thought he would be. What else had he lied about on his profile? Instead of offering her a seat, he stood and grabbed her arm. His dark eyes bored into hers, grave and intense.

“Marco isn’t coming. But you need to come with me. Now.” His gaze softened. “Your life depends on it.”

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Secrets


Here you are dear readers! 

The prompt: He looked at his phone, turned pale, then quickly left the room.

My story:



Jason sat in the cafĂ©, sipping his coffee, waiting. A beep sounded from his pocket. He looked at his phone, turned pale, then quickly left the room. “Where are you?” the text read. How could he have forgotten she’d be home early tonight?

Racing home, heart pounding, he searched for an excuse. He had kept her in the dark for so long, he couldn’t blow it now.

Pulling up the drive, he stepped into the role of faithful husband. His cool demeanor and smooth lie hid his nerves. But her kiss assured him she still knew nothing of his secret.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Chance meeting


Two weeks in a row! In case you are wondering, "What is WonHundred Word Wednesday?" Wonder no more. It is a writing exercise that several of us writers do. Each week we write a 100 word story based on a prompt. We all use the same prompt and it's fun to see where the stories end up. So without further ado...

The prompt: It started with a chance meeting on a film set

My story:


Abby reached for the last donut when her hand collided with another. Both pulled back quickly and she looked up to see the hunky lead actor smiling down at her. As used to actors as she was, his smile and sparkling eyes made her stomach dance. She could see a romance unfolding. He’d offer her the donut and…

“Oops,” he said as he reached for it again.

What!? Abby snatched it and took a bite. “Oops.” She responded, turning away.

It started with a chance meeting on a film set, and came to an abrupt end. So much for romance.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Memories Alive


Can you believe you're seeing this? A WWW post from me? Hard to imagine, but it's true! Hope you enjoy!

The prompt: He had kept their mother alive in their thoughts. Too alive, perhaps.

My Story:


Thomas held his sister’s hand tightly. “Are you ready?”

Tears glistened in Jen’s eyes, but she nodded.

He pushed the front door of the old house open. Warmth spilled out, contrasting the cold winter air.

“What’s going on?” Jen asked, walking through the doorway.

They could smell fresh bread, just like every Saturday morning growing up. But the house was dark, as it should be, no one was home.

As Thomas closed the door, the air shifted, full of the flowery scent of her perfume.

Since the funeral, he had kept their mother alive in their thoughts. 

Too alive, perhaps.

WonHundred Word Wednesday: Legend of the well


It's Wednesday, and I actually wrote one this week! Check it out:

The prompt: There was a legend about the well in the garden

My story:



There was a legend about the well in the garden, and Gwen believed it. So much that she’d talked herself into walking to the well at midnight in January. So much that she’d coaxed her bare feet onto the cold stone wall. So much that she’d risk everything for hope of happiness.

Just one more step and she’d be free. Free from the sideways glances, free from the criticism. Free to make her life her own. One more step and her dreams could be hers.

Gwen closed her eyes, dropped the token into the well and stepped into the abyss.
