Rules from Haunted Wordsmith:

Welcome to the new Opposites Attract Challenge!

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work).

Explore the word and its opposite … challenge your creative side


Today’s word: crowded

Antonyms: bare, blank, devoid, empty, stark, vacant, void


The lot numbered number 333 was vacant. Devoid of a building even. There was no one on the street in any direction.

Pulling out the directions Max checked the address again. He checked both he street sign and the number painted on the lot’s curb. It was right.

It was getting dark and this was not a good neighborhood to be in after dark, so he shoved the paper into his pocket and started to make his way down the street to the next lot that had a house on it, but there were no lights.

Suddenly he was grabbed from behind and dragged yelling down the street to where the houses were all crowded together. He was dragged up to the door and it opened, spilling light out on the porch. “Surprise,” his friends shouted.

Max was upset and asked “why did you do that?”

“Oh, so you can play practical jokes on others, but you can’t take them when someone plays one on you? We got tired of all your jokes and decided it was time to pay you back. Now maybe you will think twice before you play the next joke.”
