Saturday Centus: Family Drama Part IX


Not really eager to talk to her idiot ex-husband, Kat instead studied the Rube Goldberg style devices in the nearby window display as she considered her options. She probably wasn't getting Russ's help. Her split-at-the-first-sign-of-trouble little sister wasn't coming back any time soon. And she couldn't leave that body in the freezer forever. The white-bearded fat man rolled through the church doors over and over again. The machine was stuck. “Something isn't doing its part right.” And that's when it dawned on her. Not wasting any time, she hurried away to set her plan in motion, feeling more hopeful than she had since this whole family drama started.

I think you know the drill by now, so just a quick review.  Prompt in bold italic.  100 words.  Jenny.  I'm trying to string them all together, and Jenny's trying to stump me.  C'mon, four weeks in a row of "holiday" style prompts?

Need to catch up?  Put Family Drama in my search gadget to get them all.  Only need last week?  It's here.

By the way Tina. You have inspired me to try to let my fictional characters continue their story into the next Centus.

Uw the suspense is killing me! and what about that body? shiver!!

Jenny said...

You did it! OK, OK, I promise next week I will have no holiday prompts! But wait! Isn't there a holiday in January? Like Presidents day or something? Martin Luther King day? Australia Day?

OK. I still promise. Kinda. Sorta.

This was clever, clever, clever! Not sure where you found this idea but it almost feels like a planned segue.

Not the result of cursing the holiday prompts - ha!

Thanks for linking.

You are really amazing!
