Saturday Centus: Family Drama, Part V


The Moon in Leo trines Mars and opposes Neptune. Although there is a chance to get a lot done and take positive action, misunderstandings could arise. It's better to be safe than sorry. Make sure you know what you're getting into before you take a risk that could leave you worse off than before.

Kat read the horoscope with her coffee. “Ha! I should have seen that yesterday.” She'd taken “positive action” by coming out in the storm to help her sister. The “misunderstanding” between Elaine and her lover had ended in bloodshed. She was, about to “take a risk”. “Worse off than before?” Hell, yes. She had a dead body, rolled up in a blood-soaked rug, waiting for some sort of action. Elaine had skipped out on her, again, and her hope of Russ's help was slowly dwindling as her coffee got cold and the phone stayed silent.

It's Saturday Centus.  By now you know the drill, 100 words, don't mess with the prompt, link up at Jenny's.  This week is another curve ball, though.  We were to take any horoscope and write about the day that person would have as a result.  I'm challenging myself to connect all my stories, regardless of the prompt.  Keeping with challenge, I told myself to just take whichever one popped up first in Google.  So go check out the other stories, and add yours to the linky if you want to play.

P.S You can read the first four parts here.

What fun. You know what they say about friends? A friend will help you move, a real friend will help you move the body. I hope you are having as much fun writing these as we are in reading them.

I agree with Cheryl, very nicely done Tina.

I took away my first attempt at this, in case you tried to visit my post and found that it was not accessable. But it's working now. I have finally finished writing a Centus for week 30.
Best wishes,

Who needs trouble when you have a sister like Elaine. I think Kat is probably wishing Elaine was rolled up in a rug. Always enjoy your contribution to SC! ~Ames

Not sure how you are managing this but it is genius. What a fun continuing story and an amazing interpretation of a difficult prompt.
