My truth. My life.

Her time to shine

The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available

point of refraction.  She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this

was all there ever was. Or could be.

The sound of the final bell rang and jerked her back into reality.

She grabbed her backpack, pushed through the doors and smiled.

Determined to never look back.

“Hello world, here I come”

Note: this was done for Trifecta Challenge:  We had to add 33 words to finish the first 33 words they gave us.

  1. Great use of the prompt! Relly like the way you joined your half to their lead in – sounds like a really good story brewing.

  2. A great, upbeat take on the prompt. Most of us went with sorrow, pain or worse! 😉 Nice job!

  3. I’m smiling remembering the ringing of the bell, and the release into the fresh air and the real world. Nice. And yes, I went dark on this too, so your “light” was like being released from school.
    It’s great how we all can see things differently.
