THE WINNER

The Rogue Speaks:

Jenny Matlock has really given us a challenge with this week's Saturday Centus! OMG! I don't even know that wordy old me can come up with a story in ony 25 words! But I will give it my best try. The prompt, as always, is in bold type.

Myra locked the door to her trailer with fierce finality. Smiling, she slid into the old truck and cranked the engine, the lottery ticket still in her hand.

You did it brilliantly!

Your best try was really great! Loved your take on the prompt. Whenever Jenny throws us these micro centus challenges, I tend to go overboard with my intro. I will get those words out one way or another! Kat

Great take! I felt as though I were right there with Myra. I could see the trailer and the pickup, even imagined some dust blowing up behind her as she wheeled away.

Wonderful post.........cj

Your story, like Myra's lottery ticket, turned out to be a winner. Since we poor bloggers are short on cash, we're paying you with comments.
