Today’s piece is brought to you by, Donna-Louise Bishop over at Newshound to Novelist. She is doing a weekly writing prompt challenge in which she provides a single word and challenges everyone to write a complete story in only 100 words. This week’s prompt is “Hills” and here is my take on that prompt.
Lora intoned a sweet sigh as her eyes drifted to the window beside her bed. Buildings and houses covered the landscape. She frowned and watched a girl getting the water pitcher.
“There used to be nothing but hills there once,” Lora said.
The girl gave her a knowing smile.
“What was your name again?”
“Sarah, Mum. It’s Sarah,” the girl answered as sadness filled her eyes.
“Right, Sarah. I knew that,” she turned back to the window, “There was a giant apple tree on the top of one.”
Sarah dipped her head and whispered, “I know. You met Dad there.”
