Joining the weekly 100 words challenge for Grown ups. A selection of prompts for this week is below, based upon the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible, which was celebrated last week.

....the powers that be / the apple of his eye / the writing on the wall

The alarm clock sounded and an arm stretched out to snooze it. She had been awake for hours already, as was the case most days. After a while she headed off to the bathroom for the regular morning ritual, joined by the recent addition of feeling sick, so sick that she could barely get dressed. After a forced morning drink she left the house clutching the important envelope. When she arrived and handed it to him, he looked surprised and said “why?” to which she replied “no surprises, the writing has been on the wall for some time now”

For this week, I have continued with a second part.

Taking part in the 100 word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #20


  1. Intriguing. First I thought morning sickness, then I thought stressful job and handing in her notice. Tell us more.

  2. Intriguing indeed, I am with Sally-Jayne ...not decided whether it is a pregnancy, stress, upset or excitement. The mood of this piece leads me to think that she is NOT a happy lady...

  3. oooh this is very intriguing. Is it morning sickness? Hope to hear more. x

  4. My guess is pregnant by the boss to whom she hands her notice... Intriguing.

  5. My guess is pregnant and leaving her partner/husband. But there's only one way we'll know for sure...

  6. Gosh - what a suspense-filled ending J! Brilliantly creation of a tortured character and plenty of scope for this story to continue! Fab!

  7. For this week, I have continued the prompts here

  8. And inspired by everyone questions have used the third prompt into a third post.

  9. Exciting. I'm glad you wrote more parts because I need to know.
