What Ho! What Ho!
Monday’s Minutes it is. 😀
The Prompt I am using was submitted by Faith and is, ‘Now do you think it was a good idea?’
“Now do you think it was a good idea?” Chrissy shout in my face. Rude.
I ignored her, and instead watched as the last few beams that had been holding the roof up fell, disappearing into the flames. Of course this isn’t what I had in mind when I told Chrissy my plan of escape, in fact this wasn’t even remotely anything like what my plan had been. But this would work. I almost shrugged to myself. And bad habit of mine if I must say so. The worst thing I could have done at this moment was sigh, a sigh of contentment and relaxation. And of course, I being who I am, I made that mistake.
I would have much rather have Chrissy punch me in the face. But Chrissy being who she is all she did was shout at me in as loud of a voice as she dared.
“Jordan are you stupid?!”
This time I turned to look at her. “No.” I said. “Stupid isn’t the word I would use. I was thinking more of something like ‘brilliant’.”
Chrissy looked like she could throttle me. At this moment I was immensely glad that she had tiny hands and couldn’t possibly do this. Ignoring the look of hatred and disgust on her face I simply nudged her in the side.
“Come on, someone is bound to show up soon.” I turned and sauntered into the woods behind us. At least I tried to saunter, but I only succeeded in tripping over my foot and smashing my skull against a tree that jumped in my path. Thankfully Chrissy was still staring at the burning building that had been our prison these past months.
“Chrissy.” I hissed come on.
Chrissy glared up at me. She darted up to where I was, and passed me, leading the way into the woods. “When this is all over, I am going to kill you. I promise.”
I looked at her in mock shock, acting as if I had a wounded heart. Chrissy ignored me.
My word count is 341. And yes, I realize that this is over the max, but I am a rule breaker. 😉
