100WC Special Prompt #7 – Allison

Running up the stairs with a thought in my mind, then I told myself “they must be fighting for a reason, they won’t be breaking up will they”.

I was so confused, all of a sudden I heard my name being called “Allison, can you please come down stairs to the living room”. I came down stairs.

“What?” I said, shivering.

“Me and your father are getting a divorce” she said in a whimpering voice, “And none of us two can take care of you so we are putting you up for adoption”said my dad in a……………..happy voice?

  1. Hi Allison,

    Wow, you were able to say so much in your 100 word challenge this week. It sounded so sad!

    At first, I wondered if you were trying to add a bit of humour by hinting that the dad had a ‘happy voice’ when telling the child that they were breaking up and he/she was being put up for adoption.

    Then I re-read it and saw that the mum was ‘whimpering’, suggesting deep sadness. I wondered then if the father in the story was just eager to get away?

    Well done!
