100 Word Challenge: Garden
May 4, 2016 No Comments » Blog A.L. Mabry

She inhaled deeply and blew the butterfly away from her face. Her dark mood had no room for the beautiful flashes of color that contrasted the grey sky. The flowers were already stomped into oblivion. She pictured his face on every bloom as she ground them, weeping, into the soil with her size 5 vans.

No more whimsical rounds of plucking petals and letting them decide her fate. It had been decided. She brushed dirt and petals off her black dress and headed for the car. The service was at four sharp and he would hate for her to be late.


Using “garden” for inspiration, write 100 Words – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link back here from your post, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow wordsters.
