Three Things Challenge: PL79

Three Things Challenge: PL79

Rules from originator:

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: star, lake, telegram


The Telegram

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

As the star twinkled and fell towards earth, Marly stood on the bank of the lake, staring at the telegram in her hand. She couldn’t see it in the dark, but she didn’t need the light to see it, to know what it said. The contents were ingrained in her mind.

Mark was gone. Killed in action with his whole regiment.

Marly sunk to the ground and wept with grief. He was supposed to be on his way home for their wedding tomorrow. God, how could you do this?
