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 !
