100 wc

Troye breathed, his once pink lips were now blue, and the air was painfully cold. Every movement stung, and the whole floor was ice. It was once a river, but the stinging air had frozen it.

100 wc- as I read the contents of the letter i was aware of my smile

Everyone was lined up, as if in an army. Their outfits were all the same, and they all had the same worried look on their face. Who was going to be chosen? As I heard my name being called out, my stomach dropped. I broke a sweat, and my eyes started stinging. Every year, one student was chosen to be taken to the science lab and be used for experiments. Most of which resulted in death. I took the paper,…

Jemma nodded, acting as if she was listening. Nothing seemed right anymore, and the world would never be the same, no matter how many people acted like it was. It was frustrating, having people just ignore everything from the past week. She fiddled with her pen, completely ignoring everything her mother was saying. “However, she couldn’t believe what she had done!” Jemma watched as the minutes turned to hours, and wondered if she would ever leave her Mother’s office. This…

100 WC: Bridge Sprinkled Pink Daffodil Huge

Summer head out to the bridge just before sunrise. The ground was sprinkled in snow, giving the signs of winter starting. She shivered, and breathed on her hands to make them warmer. Her falling apart cardigan wasn’t doing much. There was a huge hole in her shoe, giving not much more help than the cardigan. She hadn’t seen anybody for months. She wondered where they would all be.
