Earth wasn’t anything like she expected. It was small, crowded, and so, so dirty. Trying to fit 7 billion people into an area smaller than her father’s kingdom, ridiculous. She exchanged a disgusted glance with her boyfriend, Adonis, as another one of the horrendously slow four wheeled vehicle humans were so proud of passed by them, spraying them with toxic levels of heavens-knows-what.
“I told you this was a bad idea, Adonis.”
A short story based on an angst prompt list by @writers-among-stars on tumblr :
1. “Please, just let me help you.”
2. “I don’t need you. I don’t need any of you!”
3. “I had to do it. Before I destroyed something else.”
9. “Stay with me okay? Stay awake!”
10. “Please- don’t leave me.”
13. “Everyone forgets about me. I’m used to it.”
It’s been a little while since I’ve chatted with y’all on this blog and I decided it’s time to take a quick moment to update y’all on my current work in progress and just life in general.
I’m sure the are a whole slew of other things that I’ve done this past month, but I’m just writing down the most important of them on the subject of writing.
I did the Caffeine Challenge this afternoon! The Caffeine Challenge is a one hour writing warm up hosted by caffeinewitchcraft on tumblr. Basically we’re given a prompt and then we all have to write for an hour.
I was inspired by one of the prompts that I was sure I could fit into my NaNoWriMo WIP that I am almost finished with. Please note that this is unedited, written in 60 minutes and when I’m writing a first draft I sometimes just put notes directly into the story, if you notice it, don’t worry it won’t be there once it’s edited. So, yes, it’s cringy but whatever: enjoy the story sneak peak.
“You gave up your right a long time ago, Jake,” Her voice sank lower, clouded with anger and frustration. “Don’t make me kill you too, because I won’t hesitate.”
She could hear him swallow, hard but he played it off, raising his hands in front of himself, as if warding off her attacks. “It wasn’t my fault,” He repeated the mantra of lies she’d heard too many times over the years and despise crawled up her throat and curled her lips. How could I have been so stupid as to begin to trust him again. “It wasn’t my fault.” He whispered it this time at her back as she turned to trail the procession until they reached their an area where she could get a clean shot without getting caught.
Can’t wait to release this piece to Wattpad this march!
I was scrolling through my dash and a wonderful tumblr blogger tagged ‘anyone who feels like doing this challenge’ to answer a few questions and continue the chain. I’ve enjoyed doing these chain games – although most chain games I participate in are fandom related – so I decided to give this one a shot.
I’ve also posted this on my tumblr, I’m just posting here for the other couple hundred people who don’t follow me there (elisalromagnoli).
