It's Saturday, and I'm giving Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus prompt a run for the money.
The rules? The prompt must appear, in its original form, within your story. You have 100 words to work with (nothing naughty). Link up with Jenny, and see all the great responses.
Spotlight on the Family (prompt appears in bold)
The baby woke up crying when they argued this afternoon.
She wanted them to be a family, but lately, they bickered almost daily. Hateful words were exchanged that couldn't be taken back. Just yesterday, Levi, feeling attacked, and with his feelings hurt, slammed the front door as he left.
Today, she broke their engagement when she heard about his new girlfriend's pregnancy.
"This is never going to come out", she thought as she scrubbed at the spot on the worn carpet. She shouldn't have thrown that plate of spaghetti at him. She scrubbed harder, wanting to finish up in time for the county Tea Party rally.
Mom WAS right - this 'hope-y, change-y thing' hadn't worked out well at all.
