The Wall #22

Jenny MatlockIt's that time again!  For today's Saturday Centus, Jenny's given us a picture prompt and a 100 word limit.

Still trying to continue the story after my frightening experience at the old house, here's my next installment in the saga of The Wall.

~ Next day, the innkeeper's son, William, invited me to his soccer game. I'd had quite a scare and wanted to be with other people.

From the school window I watched the kids circle up for their pregame prayer. The goalie, a little girl in pink, stood at the center. I noticed the boy with the carrot top as he pushed his way between William and Tommy to stand by the little girl with the ponytail. She clenched her fist, stuck her tongue out at him, then looked adoringly at William. He stood a little taller and pretended not to notice. ~

I'm fascinated by how you manage to connect you writings from one week to the next. Nicely done.

I've been away for a few weeks so I am amazed that this epic tale is still continuing. This is a great piece about how young love fights to be seen!

If I were you, I would have come up against a wall trying to keep this story going, but you continue to do it well, week after week.

Kudos!

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to read my story and leave an encouraging comment. I really love hearing from you!

Oh, I loved this!

It's funny, I never even noticed that little girl in pink in the picture.

It always fascinates me how a picture is such a subjective thing...we are all certain our vision of it is the 'right' vision.

This was so tender and sweet!

Thank you!
