Let's Play "Gossip"
The Rogue Speaks:
“Nadine! Don’t you know this girl?”
My daughter stood transfixed, her eyes wide in amazement. The newscaster announced that a popular teen had been found hanging in her closet, dead.
Nadine’s eyes filled with tears. “She was a cheerleader at my school. I didn’t know her personally. She was very popular, though.”
“Why did she do it, I wonder! Those poor parents! She was their only child!”
“Someone told a lie about her,” whispered Nadine.
“Who would do such a thing?
“It was me. I did it. I planted a little story seed.”
“Oh, Nadine!! Why?”
“I was jealous, “ she said, with shame and regret.
This is quite an interesting prompt that Jenny Matlock has given us for this Saturday Centus. Please read the other offerings. They are fascinating and varied!!
