Sample Sunday 77: BATTLEGROUND


Here is approximately 100 – 150 words from a randomly selected original piece for your enjoyment.

Eternal Curse: Battleground 9.0 (wip)

All was quiet. The tension is the room was palpable. We each held our breaths and ignored the elephant in the room as Dad began to slowly descend back down to the floor. I couldn’t even remember at what point during Sheldon’s story that he’d become so overwhelmed. I only hoped that this wouldn’t be a major setback in Dad’s progression.

Flakes of frost began to crawl up the walls as Sheldon and Dad’s combined efforts worked to restore a comfortable temperature to the confined quarter. I stood strong and put on a brave face the way Mom had taught me, so Dad wouldn’t worry too much about hurting or scaring me. Once we were all in the clear and we were certain that Dad’s condition would continue to progress, Sheldon continued his tale. We all knew what was coming next.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
