100 Words on Saturday Week 8

Introduced in February 2013 – an invitation, a prompt, a linky. Write exactly a 100 words on the prompt and publish it on your blog – a story, a poem, a mini-essay. The linky will be open right up to next Friday, after which I will have a new prompt and a fresh linky.

100 Words On Saturday 8 Prompt: RUFFLE/D FEATHERS


She reminded him that the electricity bill was due.
“Why are we using so much electricity? I know you have no value for my hard earned money. If you had to work, you’d know”, he thundered.
“I would work if you let me,” she replied.
His voice went up several decibels, “I don’t trust you.”
“Why not? I’m not the one who drinks and gambles”, she dared to say.
He raised the bottle and hit her hard on the head. She fell. Dead. Like a lifeless bird.
“She always knew how to ruffle my feathers.” he said.



Today I’m also linking in to The Writer’s Post Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Journey of Life. The linky there will be open until 3rd April. Add your link there and here too.

    Domestic violence is so common yet we don’t do much about it. It is scary that we actually allow this type of behavior/violence to perpetuate.

    Wow! That was so powerful, and I liked the connection between the “ruffled my feathers” comment and her dropping like a dead bird. Sad, but powerful. Well done.

    Hey Corinne,

    Creativity! They just come in to your mind? 🙂 Brutal, but well played with 100 words.

    I’ve heard this one several times at several places ~ “Why are we using so much electricity? I know you have no value for my hard earned money. If you had to work, you’d know”

    Sometimes lives are not easy peacy, but there’s a silver lining 😉
