Taste of Freedom

100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#163: After the dreadful events in France last week, the prompt for your 100 Words is: FREEDOM

gstatic images

Norma crept by the sofa where Adam lay, passed out after his little welcome home. She stared at the groceries scattered and broken on the floor and the trail of red pasta sauce.

She eased her battered body into the kitchen chair, blotted her lip with tissue, and placed an ice pack against her swollen jaw.

She watched the fall and rise of his chest and felt the weight in her apron pocket. The metal cold against her skin, she walked toward him.

Tired of tasting blood, Norma was ready for a taste of  freedom.

    • Lol. Is that good or bad? You may find if you get the chance to read more of my stories, I tend to like the dark genre’s. I do have a sense of humor and perhaps you will get to see that as well, but what can I say?

  1. Powerful imagery! I particularly like how you set it up, and wrote “weight in her apron pocket. The metal cold against her skin” instead of naming it. Last line is perfect, well done!
