This is part of my A-Z Challenge posts. My theme is emotions and states of being. This is where the letter “S” took my writing.
This is inspired by a fellow blogger that captivated me with their ability to write such shocking and profound stories in only 4-6 sentences. I’d normally link back but none of A.K. Teller’s blogs are currently active. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to achieve this feat but I at least wanted to try. I figured there’s no time like a challenge to see what you’re made of so here’s my attempt at micro short story writing!
Daddy was waiting outside in the truck to take me to breakfast before school like he does every Friday. Daddy told me to grab my coat when he saw me walk out of the house because he said it was too cold not to wear one today. When I got outside the truck was off, the door was open, and the keys were on the seat. I thought Daddy was playing hide and go seek but when I looked around I saw he was getting in a black truck with two men I didn’t know. I ran inside to tell Mommy two men named ICE left with Daddy in a black truck. I don’t like Fridays anymore, that was the last time I saw Daddy.
*For clarification purposes, ICE in this story is in reference to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Ok, so what are your thoughts? I’m trying to tackle things and write in ways I normally wouldn’t. This challenge is making me want to take my writing further. I can’t believe it’s nearly over! Did you like it? Did you know where I was going with it? Did it make you feel anything? I’m all ears 🙂
