DRABBLE CHALLENGE ~ SEEK

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 .

                                                                

"Give up the ghost ! Let go ! Move forward !"

"And let the past twenty years go to waste ? You gotta be kidding me ! After all my hard work — day in and day out … month in and month out —"

"It is destined to end in heartache !"

"But I'm so close … within twenty four hours 'the truth' will reveal itself ."

But I should have left well alone . As the saying goes "let sleeping dogs lie" … Instead I pursued it , punished myself ,  probed , pushed —— had to disturb the sleeping dog and , instead of the pampered poodle of my deluded imagination , I unleashed a ferocious , raving pitbull !

      Seems like everyone is hankering after “the truth” … it’s not always what you want , or imagine it to be …

    Now i can't stop wondering what THE TRUTH is……. And what will happen when he/she finds it.
    Great drabble, M! Very original angle!!

      Remember that “truth” can be twisted/altered/changed … especially after such a long period of time … thanks R !

    Oh! I like it. And no, I'm not gonna ask the same question as everyone else. I'll pretend I'm smart and know the answer. 😉

      Aha ! Smart gal ! What is “truth” anyway ? Especially after 20 odd years ? 🙂

  7. Misha on June 18, 2011 at 6:03 am
