“What the fuck?”

FREE WRITING

“What the fuck?” Her fists hung low, one came up to wipe blood off her face. There was now a dark smudge of blood below her nose, streaked across her face. Her mouth curled into an incredulous look of disbelief, rather than pain. I guess I was as surprised as her because everything happened so fast. In all the movies I’ve seen, it happens in slow motion - you see the hit coming from a mile away, and there’s this...

Throw out the goddamn guns

PROMPT: Strike

PROMPT: Walking

The girl with hair the colour of lightningran along the bridge. Shoe soles thundering on the cobblestones, she ran as if her life depended on it, leather shoulder bag flying out behind her and a wild smile on her face. She clutched her black notebook in her left hand, holding it over her head as she ran, gathering amused looks from pedestrians. She had the look of a scientist who'd just had a breakthrough and couldn't wait to share...
