This week’s prompt is from a random shuffle of the Writer Igniter! Let’s get going!
Character: Class Clown
Situation: Goes on an exotic vacation
Prop: Paint chip sample
Setting: village street, narrow and lined with compact cars on one side
Mark was looking out the curtainless window at the road below when his mother came into the room. The asphalt road sloped down a gentle hill like a river between cliffs made of pastel colored, three-storey houses. He’d never seen houses like these before.
“Mark,” his mother said,”you haven’t finished unpacking.”
Mark’s shoulders slumped.
“I thought we were going on an exotic vacation.” He didn’t try to hide the sullenness in his voice.
“If I had told you we were moving, you’d have refused to come, and it would’ve been stressful all around,” she said. “This way, it’s done, and you just have to live with it. Cheer up, you get to choose the color of your room.”
He stared down at the paint chip sample she tossed onto the bed as she walked out of the room.
It’s not award winning, but I think I did ok. Let me see your work – leave it in the comments or just link to it! I’d be happy to read it.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
