So I’ve been looking for writing challenges recently, and I found a good one at Velvet Verbosity. The challenge: write 100 words on a one word prompt. This week’s word was “treasures”. Since this is my first attempt at such a thing, please be gentle!
“Sit, sit.” She said.
I did. She was quite good at building the suspense here. The box gave no clue as to what could be inside. I could have sneaked a peek, but that would have been rude. If she had something she wanted to share with me, I could be patient.
“The greatest treasures I have are in this box. Shall we have a look?”
And as she opened up the box, a look of pure joy crossed her face.
