HAVE FUN!


Today’s Word:
earnestness

Antonyms:
frivolity
levity
lightheartedness

******************************

In her earnestness to escape the house she wasn’t being very quiet and therefore missed the sounds warning her of his arrival.

His levity during their earlier date lulled her into a lightheartedness that took her normal wariness away. He said he was going to go out and get them some more wine and she was looking forward to that. She’d had a hard day at work.

She started to get drowsy and fell asleep, dropping what was left in her wine glass. Once he was sure she was out, he put all frivolity aside and began to move her to the other room and tie her to a chair.

His fun would begin once all the drugs had worn off her. He napped while he waited.

Sound asleep, he didn’t hear her moving around at first and was surprised she had woken up already.

By the time he got to the room she was halfway out the window and reaching for the tree to climb down to the ground. He simply gave her a push and she fell out of the 3rd floor window. She lay motionless on the sidewalk below. She never got a chance to utter a sound.
