The Rogue Speaks:
I was truly flattered when Jenny asked me to write the prompt for this week's Saturday Centus. I am anxious to read what everyone comes up with. Please try to read as many of the offerings as you can, because we have many gifted writers in our blogging world.
I came up with the prompt before I started writing the next chapter of "The Surface," and then I had to figure out how to work it into the story so it would whet your interest to keep reading about Selah and Scott. I will post another chapter of their saga tomorrow, but in the meantime I hope you will enjoy the little snippet I came up with for today. The prompt is in bold type:
The walls of the archives were filled with large drawers, each numbered, but sealed. Scott took Selah’s hand and placed her palm in the middle of a door. The door opened, and inside lay a chest which he carefully removed.
Selah opened it to find a series of data files, each one older than the next. At the bottom, she saw a stack of letters in pristine condition, as if they could have been written just yesterday. Reverently, she lifted the stack of letters from the ancient chest and placed them gently on a table in the middle of the room. Then she sat down and began to read.
