100 Word Song: Penitentiary (The Guest Part VII)

This week Tara over at Thin Spiral Notebook chose the song for Lance’s 100 Word Song weekly prompt.  She picked Citizen Cope’s “Penitentiary”.  And for my 100 words we’re jumping right back into my spooky October story “The Guest”.  Monday’s  installment was a big turning point in the story.  If you missed it, catch up here.

Today’s 100:
Matt took in the scene on the floor; eyes flashing with confusion coupled with fear.  He turned from me and walked out the back door.  From inside, I watched him pace the length of the yard muttering to himself.  It was clear that I’d have to be the strong one here.  It was only fair; I’d gotten us into this mess.

Returning he said, “Well we’re not staying here trapped with this thing, prisoners in our home.   Maybe we can burn the house down?  Be done with it?  Shit, this thing is probably fireproof.  For all we know it’s invincible!”


This week I’ve also linked up for Velvet Verbosity’s 100 word challenge based on the word “Invincible”.  Yay for hooking up with yet another hop!

Stay positive & love your life!

Random fact:  Dying in a fire is on my top five list of the worst ways to die.  Yes, I’ve thought about it entirely too much ie. enough to have made a mental list.

  1. We had a pet hermit crab escape his aquarium once. I’ve seen those creepy, little beasts while molting. I know how Matt feels. (the crab turned up about a week later, no worse for wear.)

  2. Sometimes the prisons we create ourselves are the worst of all.

  3. This is a very good suspense piece!

Okay, your turn to talk!
