Aside

Walk On

Came across an interesting challenge today: write a story of exactly 50 words. No more, no less.

This challenge, presented here:  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/writing-challenge-fifty/ was developed by guest blogger, Boy with the Hat. (Spoiler alert: he does, in fact, wear a hat.)

So I present to you a story in precisely 50 words. Probably the most brief you’ll ever get from me. Enjoy.

She walked away, back straight, a tear on her cheek. She prayed he would follow. She prayed he wouldn’t. Useless. They were dashed off the rocks with the ocean waves. Every step dragged a ball and chain.

He didn’t follow. He wouldn’t.

So she wouldn’t look back.

She walked on.
