100 Word Challenge - Week 41

Joining the weekly 100 words challenge for Grown ups. This week the prompt is to use this picture titled "Old Bones" Copyrighted to Julia (JFB57)

Doning wellington boots, they started walking through the old cemetery. She walked ahead, keen to find the headstone, to be the one to call gently “it’s here”.

Walking about the rows, reading the epitaphs and wondering who these people had been, what their lives and loves had been like.

After several hours she spotted the headstone. Not exactly how she remembered it, but it was definitely the one. She bowed her head in respect and remembrance for someone long since passed.  

Suddenly, she felt her colour drain away; for there was a small pile of bones.......

  1. Good one; would love to know what's going on here.

  2. Oh, that gave me a shiver wondering where that came from and whose they were... nicely done.

  3. Oooh creepy ... very good build up. She wasn't expecting that was she?

  4. So many possibilities - ooh very creepy I agree with Older Mum :-)

    Very good Julie, you've reminded me of being frightened of the cemetery when I was little!

    The epitaphs on old grave stones are fascinating. There she is lost in gentle imaginings of peoples past and WHAM, that pile of bones on her own memory. Nicely done!
