Every Saturday, Jenny Matlock posts a writing prompt and we get our creative juices flowing.
The catch? You must write no more than 100 words, and keep it clean.
For some reason, each week, I seem to channel O. Henry, and want to include a twist in my tales. It's such fun!
The prompt appears in bold, below.
Go ahead, give it a try and link up with Jenny! Read all the other submissions - who knew there could be so much creativity in just 100 words?
I'd never been giddy at an execution before. Working on the "kill team" (that's what WE called it at the Federal prison) was a stressful occupation; nervous tension was a given.

Mildred Angela Kincaid had been brutally strangled - I should know - I killed HER, first. That's why it meant so much for me to push the plungers on the two medications that would end HIS life today.
