100 Word Challenge: Week 26

It’s been one of those weeks where I can’t wait for the weekend to get here – then again I messed up my Blogging Plan this week. Hopefully I’ll get it fixed next week – instead today there are two posts.

Anyway I will quit my whining and get on with my story because that is why you are here.

I sat up in bed and my head started to swim. The aquamarine and magenta spots flashed in front of my eyes again. The lights are like a camera flash dancing across my retinas over and over again. I then clutched at my head as the aeroplane noise repeated in my ears like excruciating tinnitus. When were the doctors going to find out what was wrong with me. They acted as if they knew what it was and how to treat it but really they all looked at me aghast, was I some form of medical mystery after the accident.

      They did confound me a little bit and it did take some tweaking to make sure that the words were in the right context but I got there in the end! Thanks for your comment.

    The best compliment you can give with this kind of prompt is that you wouldn’t have known what the random words were unless they were in bold, and that definitely applies to your piece. I like the palpable sense of tension you have created.

    • Hannie says:

      Thank you for your comment Ian. I like to thin that I did it on purpose to make sure that my words blended in but I think it honestly happened by accident! I tend to like internal dialogue it seems and so it’s not like another character has to say anything to spring another thought or sentence into being (does that make sense?)

    Really like this one. Agree with all the above; you wouldn’t have been able to tell the prompt words if they weren’t highlighted.
    What a horrid condition to have. Great post.

      Hey Anna – no idea if it’s real but somehow it worked and like I said in S-J’s reply – I half had Dr House walking it to tell them “It’s Not Lupus!”
