ADVENT CALENDAR - DAY 21

Today I am using even fewer words than you are used to reading in my blog posts.
We were challenged to write three complete but connecting stories using SIX, EIGHTEEN and TWENTY-FIVE words respectively. So here goes - I suggest you take a breath between each story to get the full effect!


NOW
At his funeral Rani didn’t weep.
...................................................

TEN YEARS EARLIER
‘You must not shame the family.’
‘But he beats me.’
‘If you leave him I will kill you.’
......................................................

TEN YEARS BEFORE THAT
‘You will marry him.’
‘But he is old.’
‘He is rich – your children will want for nothing.’
‘If I refuse?’
‘Your father will beat you.’
...........................................................
That's all folks!! - please don't go without leaving a comment.
And did I mention I have a new book out? Click on the WOLF PACK cover at the top of this blog to go to my Amazon page. Happy Christmas.

  2. Wow. Some cultures don't allow for love, or the safety of their daughters. Like being a slave.
