Ten Word Challenge:
Thee soap opera Fair Lands was advertising they had a crisis of biblical proportions, but since she does not watch it Jennifer was not worried about that. She had other worries. A mammoth search had gone out for the capture of Gary Stoner. Mr Lemer and Professor Flask continued to reassure her that he would be behind bars very soon.
There was a gentle spring rain, not enough to keep her cooped up in the house any longer. She thought she would take a short walk to the garden gate, so using her crutch, and grabbing a piece of bubble gum, she limped down the sidewalk. The gum had an odd taste, she felt suddenly unable to control her body. Jennifer questioned if she was having a seizure. She slumped to the ground.
Opening her eyes she saw the familiar room and heard the familiar machines, she was back in the hospital room. Unlike before she felt nothing in her legs. She tried to move them. They remained immobile. No voice came, although she wanted to scream.
Martin Flask explained that the doctor said that there was paralysis. He had found her lying on the ground. The body was immobile but the brain was running over the past. It was the bubble gum. He had got to her. Gary Stoner had got to her. Suddenly the wrinkles on the sheet were annoying her for no good reason.
Five Word Challenge:
The Stuffed animals sitting on her shelf heard an operatic rendition of the days events. The flat tire was the last straw even if had nothing to do with the curse or maybe it did. A way of anger management Sandy Shore took out her canvas and added some more paint splatters. She added some more biographical material to her journal. She needed to talk to someone that could give her a clue to what war she was in.
