The Storm :: A Drabble

Standard

The drabble is back. That is to say, my drabble dabbling is back. What is a ‘drabble’ you ask? A drabble is a short work of fiction, exactly 100 words in length.

Join me. Create your own 100-word piece of fiction. The more dabbling with drabbles the merrier. Tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.

.: The Storm :.

The storms were violent, taking many trees down.
And, the power was out throughout the whole town.

Fearing the worst, she made a call to her spouse.
Hoping to learn they were safe at the house.

He answered the phone, and said the news was not good.
Their living room and kitchen were now filled with wood.

But his tone remained too somber; and he paused for too long.
She knew there was something – something else there was wrong.

She started to shake, wondering if she could take it.
“I’m sorry,” he said. “Your ice cream did not make it.”

  1. Excellent, Excellent & Excellent Lenore. I like the rhythm of this drabble a lot. When it comes to drabble, there is no one better than you Lenore. 🙂

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
