Sacred Sunday: Saturday Centus

Jenny Matlock

Ms. Jenny Matlock, from the blog of the same name, has begun a series of memes called Saturday Centus. The point is to write from a prompt, supplied by Mr. Jenny, and in 100 words (not including prompt) tell a story. The following is what ensued when I attempted this myself. I felt it was perfect for my not so weekly Sacred Sunday theme. Please enjoy. (Prompt is in red)


"May I help you,miss? You look puzzled."


"Mmmm...thank you, I'm just looking for my father. We came in together a moment ago, but he seems to have wandered off."



"I do not think he has wandered off, for you were alone when you entered here."


"No, I'm quite sure he was with me."


"When was the last time you spoke with him or dined at his table?"


"Come to think of it, it has been some time."


"Are you certain it wasn't you that wandered far away?"


"What do you mean?"



"Remember when your path became rocky and unsure? When nightly tears became your lullaby?"


"But how....how do you know that?"



"My dear child, I am He."



I fall to my knees and tearfully pray: "Father! Please forgive me!"

FABULOUS! I like this one! I wish I had read the prompt and had a chance to write on it before reading your writing... I would have liked to see which direction my brain would have gone... might have to participate in this one!! :)
