This week Mrs Matlock has taken us all back to that first day of term when we had to write about our summer holidays (for some reason I always hated that). This can be fact or fiction and has to be written in the first person. I’m going to continue Dotty’s story so the following is a work of fiction.
I sit in the car watching from a distance wondering what I’m doing here. On vacation, my two weeks away from work and I’m here with Dotty who is work. I’m risking a lot here for her, bit I think she appreciates that. I can see it in her eyes when she thinks I’m not looking. She needs a new counsellor – I can look after her in other ways now. I become aware of movement in the mirror. She’s in pieces again, I rush from the car and scoop her in my arms, holding her as tight as possible.
Phew – bang on 100 words (after a fair bit if editing!)
If you’ve not followed Dotty’s story till now here are the back links (written in no particular chronological order) if you’d like to catch up – I have a feeling one is missing but I can’t find it for the life of me!!
