I recently got a creative writing prompt to write a short story. Y’all can also submit your prompts on the “Your Idea Box” page here.
The prompt : “The dull sound has echoed in her ears as long as she could remember. No one else seems to hear it. The thing is, over the years, the thuds have been getting closer and closer. Today, they are only a few minutes apart.
The dull sound has echoed in her ears as long as she could remember. No one else seems to hear it. It all started on a sunny morning, Stacy Fischer, a chirpy eleven-year-old girl, got too distracted during the science class. The professor, a 48-year-old army veteran, couldn’t handle his fragile male ego getting tarnished. Stacy received five blows on each hand, each thud echoing in her mind and imprinting its horrific trail on her hand. Nightmares stretched beyond the night. Stress hid under the garb of excuses. Her confidence, lurking in the shadows, ceased to exist. The thing is, over the years, the thuds have been getting closer and closer. Today, they are only a few minutes apart.
Children, please welcome your new English teacher, Miss Stacy. As she greeted the children, smiling, the thuds vanished. Resolve had taken over, making sure that the ordeal won’t be faced by anyone else.
Author’s note : My college has started online and life is again regaining its old and hectic pace. I try to be regular and active on the blog, be it reading your beautiful pieces or visiting blogs that reach out to me. Please bare with me if you feel that I have not been that active. I’ll compensate for it, sooner or later. How is your life going, readers ? ✨
