Words for Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get your creative juices flowing. A group of us take it turn about providing the words and this month Vest at The Daily Gaggle is providing the prompts. Vest just had a major birthday. Why not drop in and pay him a birthday visit. While you are there you might want to take those words and run with them yourself.
This weeks words are;
Cheerful, river, children, Sunday, house, age
Demise, noise, point, idea, about, and year.
Here we go:
In the individual pod of 2A1 the occupant sat in silent reflection. Now 142 YEARS of AGE 2A1 could remember a time far different from this. There was a time when families; mother, father and CHILDREN, lived together in HOUSES that were full of CHEERFUL NOISES. There were meadows and RIVERS, lakes and mountains but something was happening to the environment and no one knew how to fix it. 2A1 could POINT to the exact day that everything changed. Someone had a brilliant IDEA ABOUT how to survive in the sickening environment and that instigated the DEMISE of life as it was then lived.
“Is this living?” 2A1 wondered. Turning to the calendar icon on the main screen 2A1 realised that it was SUNDAY and wonderful, warm memories flooded in of Mom and Sunday dinners with siblings gathered round the dinner table. 2A1 sighed deeply and fingered the ‘elimination dose’ provided by administration to all inhabitants of Green Block. “You will know when the time is right.” was written on the label. Ageing fingers fumbled with the epi pen.
