Saturday Centus - the stick

Well Ms. Jenny is getting very very wicked ... this week's centus can only consist of 25 words plus the prompt ... here goes ... the prompt is in bold.


The lottery ticket mocked her from the bathroom counter … it was really the little white stick and it’s blue mark that would determine her fate.
