I wasn’t originally going to take up this week’s prompt from Write on Edge, maybe I was wussing out a little. I’m a little afraid of being afraid. But I’m starting to like these challenges and the prompt mulled around in my head for a good while. I went to sleep on a vague idea, one that I wasn’t too sure about, and when I woke it seemed like a good idea to have a ‘stab’ at it.
So here goes, a text message eliciting or expressing fear. It’s not written in any shorthand either, which was also another completely different challenge! Oh, and just to warn you all that it may be TRIGGERING.
I know you wanted some space & to ‘clear your head’ but I’ve not heard from you all day & am very worried. Promise me you’re OK?
(As an aside, I drafted this on my mobile (so hard because I kept going to abbreviate everything) to get the character count (I’m twelve wee characters over according to my phone, oops!) then got my husband’s reaction. He wanted to know who I was sending it to and what had happened, worry and concern were how he described his reaction. Is that close enough to fear?)
