A story in less than one hundred words

Have you ever had a go at writing a story in less than one hundred words?  Here’s mine. Lost Love.

Lost Love (1)

He enters the white walled room; a clinical smell camouflages the stale aroma from yesterday’s flowers. A jug of water stands on the wooden cabinet. Linked up to tubes and monitors, Olivia lies still. Bleeps from the machine provide life in the form of slow breaths.

Fifty years ago, they first met. A striking beauty, heart shaped face, smooth creamy complexion. Soft long lustrous auburn hair falls below her shoulders.

It’s time to flick the switch.

Time to say goodbye.

A high pitched sound peeps… a flat line shows.

    I’ve never tried this myself but you’ve certainly captured the essence of the moment. Well done Tricia.

    Thank you, Lynette. If you do have a go, let me know and I’m happy to add it to the blog.

    Hi. Thank you for the story, very clever lady. I’ve joined in 250 words before but not 100 I’m just packing for my holiday. I might well give it a try on the flight.

    I’ll be in touch when I get home (18th) about travel to Swanwick

    Hope all well
