So here is my contribution to this month's WEP - Back of the Drawer. I've literally written and edited it in one day (today) so it's not great! I had such good intentions for this challenge, then I went and got ill so I've had to force myself to write it. Still, I'm pretty proud that I'm even posting anything, so it's a win in my eyes! Hope you all enjoy it, anyway.
Forgotten Life Coralina sighed. She’d just opened the garage door, and an unpleasant sight awaited her.
She carefully climbed over the junk on the floor so that she could reach the light switch. She switched it on, and sighed again. There was a reason she’d been putting this off for so long.
She rolled up her sleeves and surveyed the mess, trying to decide where to start. There was an old cabinet pushed up against the wall closest to her that looked as though she could have it cleared by lunchtime. Tripping over a couple of old toys on the way, she started clearing.
OK, so I've really struggled with this theme. It's very much a "happy" theme, and I'm not a "happy" writer - I'm trying not to think too much about what this means about me! Anyway, I almost gave up, but I was determined to put something up, so here it is.
Peace and Love
If you could give your life to create peace, would you do it?
I look at my friends around me. He was standing to my right, the usual calm, almost bored expression on his face. I was one of the only ones who could see through the mask. He knew we wouldn’t make it through this, and yet he stayed by my side, ready to fight to the death. She was on my other side, as always, that fierce look on her face. She never did know when to back down, just like me. I suppose we were a good match.
I guess I’ll never find out for sure.
I step forward, towards the approaching army. The leader sees my movement, and smiles, curious. He’s not worried.
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.
This week I'm celebrating:
- I went to the cinema with Jamie yesterday, we went to see an anime film called "Your Name". It was really good, it was only showing once, so I'm glad we booked seats!
- I'm on nights now until I start my new job, so this week I'm celebrating sleep! I'm struggling to sleep during the day, and I'm so tired. Hopefully I'll get used to it soon!
