Saturday Centus: Family Drama Part VII


Dragging the body to the freezer proved a lot more work than she'd anticipated. Three steps, rest. Three steps, rest. Elaine had always liked her men tall, muscular, and fit. Why couldn't she have killed some wimpy hundred pound weakling? 
Ok, what would she have Annie do, if she was writing this instead of living it? That was a tough one. The last line she'd written in her current manuscript was, “An involuntary gasp of shock escaped my lips when I opened the shoebox and saw the pointy-toed shoes.” Her heroine had a shoe thing...probably wouldn't wanted to get dirty...so no help there. Where the expletive was Russ? She was going to make him pay for this.


It's Saturday Centus, and I'm linking all my entries together for the sheer challenge of it. Go here for last week, and for the links to the previous weeks. If you feel like playing along, head on over to Jenny's for the full rules of how to use the prompt (in bold italics above) in your own story. Then check out the other varied takes on the crazy prompts she gives us. Never a dull moment in this meme!

Oh, I hope she's not going to have to hide Russ's body too LOL. Great job.

I have come in the middle of this. It amazes me how you can conclude from one story to the next. But I am wondering??? Who is this Elaine? I don't think I would keep covering up for her.~Ames

You are wicked clever.

How you do this is beyond me. Two weeks, sure. Three weeks, maybe....but ongoing?

Impressive.

Thanks for sharing. Loved it.

Hi Tina,
I am amazed how well you are linking your texts together, even if I am reading them a little out of order right now.
This post has a clever solution: to let her think of her fictional character's next step.

I am late in commenting on just week 32's SC-posts.

Kram,
Anna
