The drabble challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by Aheila on her blog: http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com A reminder how it works: read the prompt and find your angle; write a drabble (100 word story, give or take 5 words); post a direct link to the drabble in your comments.
A walk, like a laugh, or one's handwriting, becomes a signature, making our mark across space.
The removal of your signature swagger left certain areas of your life unmarked. The distinctive walk non-existent, obliterated by a near fatal accident.
It has been too long since the last attempt. Time has come. Step out. Reclaim your signature.
Unfamiliar. Cautious. Stagnant limbs refuse to budge.
Slow. Painful. Jelly limbs flutter.
Movement. As faint as the hint of erased pencil markings on a white page.
Against all odds.
You leave your long-awaited mark, smudged and undefined… the first tentative step to recovery.
