Here’s Sammi’s latest writing challenge. You can check out the rules at her blog HERE. Many thanks for hosting this, Sammi.
My 89-word tale is a take-off from an account I read on another blog. The writer was the one watching the frustrated lotto winner waiting for the check that never came. Be careful out here. As someone once said, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.”
The Winnings Disappear…And What Else?
“Unbelievable! Great! See you there.” Gord hung up and turned to Marlyss. “We’ve won big, sweetheart! They’re bringing our check to CrackerJacks. Let’s go.”
“We’ll replace this furniture,” Marlyss said as they dashed out.
“We’ll replace this house,” Gord amended.
Two hours later, frustrated, Gord ended the call. “Three times I’ve given them directions. I can’t believe they can’t find this place!”
Another diner leaned their way. “Better check what’s happening at home. Maybe better take a cop along.”
Exchanging looks of horror, the couple dashed for the door.
