Alone At Last

100-word-challenge

This week’s 100 word Challenge from Tara at Thin spiral notebook calls upon us to use the word QUIET in a story of 100 words.  And as she says “No more, no less”.

So, here goes:

What struck her most was the quiet.  After the caterers had cleared up and left and all the mourners had said their goodbyes, she was left in the empty house.

Ever since the accident there had been friends and acquaintances visiting or phoning to offer help and sympathy and now suddenly she was alone

Everyone said how brave she was but really she was just managing to keep her emotions in check.  She knew that she wasn’t brave.  She just knew that if she let go her grief would overwhelm her and she would never get out of the hole.

  1. That was written from the heart. Great use of 100 words.

  2. That moment when you are finally alone with your thoughts and memories, the silence must be deafening.

  3. Just an FYI: Your top link is to last week’s prompt – “Run-on sentence,” and your second link, the one to the Linky Tools, directs to an old post from 2015.

So what's on your mind?
