Today's random prompt is below. Feel free to post your story in the comments or on your blog (just be sure to post the link) because I'd love to read it.
Later this afternoon, I'll update my post with my own 5 sentence story. Be sure to come back and check it out...
Task-- (today's is futuristic!)
Write a 5 sentence story with the following:
- Place: in a motel room
- Character: a hospital nurse
- Object: two wedding rings
- Time: spring, year 2025
UPDATE 4:30 - I went with a dystopian feel! (imagine that) And this time I followed the character name rules :)
“It’s highly unlikely anyone’s discovered this yet,” the balding archeologist, Zia, said, kicking up sheets of dust while stepping over the recently demolished wooden planks on the old motel room floor.
“Well, we’ve never come across a room so barred,” Xandria replied, poking her head around the door and watching Zia as he approached the two figures on the bed, both reduced to bones except for a few scraps of dingy white fabric. In her best medic voice yet, she added, “It’s as if they knew the destruction was coming and planned the best way they knew how."
Zia allowed his fingertips to graze over the two wedding rings on the deceaseds’ still-enjoined hands. “Or it’s as if they knew it was the only way they could live together forever.”
