100 WC #1

The prompt is: “so, as I looked over the edge I saw…”

I look over the edge and see water. I back away and sit down on a deck chair. My friend Sarah comes over.

“Why don’t you go in?” She asks.

“I don’t like the water.” I say.

“Come on it’s not that bad. She says. “I’ll go with you.”  I stand up reluctantly and walk over to the pool. I dip my feet into the cold water and wait. Sarah jumps in and waits for me. I slide in slowly the water rising past my waist then my shoulders. I slip under the water and think to myself, this isn’t so bad.

100 WC challenge

Prompt: But what colour should it be?

The sun is is yellow the sky is blue,

And as soon as I look at you I knew,

It couldn’t be purple or yellow or green,

Or marigold blossom or cherry supreme,

I close my eyes and think of the trees,

I really don’t know what colour it should be,

I open my eyes and take a look,

At my Dad, Mum and my best friend Brooke,

They all look up at the clear blue sky,

Where I spot an arch forming up high,

It should not be one colour or two or three,

It should be many like a rainbow should be.

The prompt is: …but I didn’t understand the instructions…

I stared confused. I had no idea what I was doing.  Professor Lidsey cracked her whip so I started. I shoved pieces on and pulled pieces off prettending to know what I was doing. When I was “finished”, the “catapult” looked like a nightmare.

“What is this?” She asked.

“A catapult miss.”

“How does it work.” she observed the thing from all angles.

“Like this.” I say loading a stick into the basket. I walk halfway around the machine before I find the lever. I pull. Nothing happens.

She raised her whip.

But I didn’t understand the instructions!”

“when did it arrive?’ I said.  

“None of your beeswacks!” Replied the man in a childish tone.
