This prompt was so much fun! I have always loved identifying an author's tone of voice and style of writing, so it was great to do something with it...I hope you enjoy! Also: the book I used to write this piece was "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes."

PROMPT: Borrowing Voice


Sometimes she wished that her friend would move faster

Then, together they could run

holding hands

through the prarie grass

laughing as it tickled their bare toes

But no, her friend always wanted to stop

see the sky overhead

watch the moon follow them

wherever they go

It was the one thing about the girls that was different

they both had the same 

soft hazel eyes 

fair skin

and hair that followed the wind

but she always wanted to run

like the waves on the beach

her friend always staying

on shore

She never understood why

Wasn't it best to always run as fast as

you possibly could?
