Saturday Centus ~ The Refrain ...

Okay, Saturday Centus on a Wednesday ... I'm just a tad bit late ... but really I wasn't here for Saturday ...

Miss Jenny's prompt "April showers bring may flowers" is in bold ... and oh, the 100 word limit ... I'm a tad over ... i'm up to 120 or so this week ... darn it is just really hard trying to squeeze in a story with only 100 words ... here's my offering for the week ...


April showers bring May flowers... April showers bring May flowers... April showers bring May flowers...

The refrain keeps running through her mind … erie echoing childish voices coming from above. Captive in a place that is so dark it’s as if the sun has never reached it. … at times burrowing sounds fill the dark air … “they don’t even know that I am alive … they don’t know that I am right here …”   She tries to move … to wriggle free, but she is stuck … long weighty roots tying her firmly to the dark earth …  she tries to lift her head ... 

April showers bring May flowers... April showers bring May flowers... April showers bring May flowers...

The refrain is halted by a young child’s shrieks …"Mrs. Matlock , Mrs. Matlock … I can see a bit of green! The flower is starting to grow!"

Really well done, Miss Jo!
