Once upon a time

flatness morbid eyes abnormally careless tense pounding vast predatory bumble

The little rabbit was tense when he saw the wolf coming out of the woods.  The wolf could smell the rabbit, moving to his predatory stance.

The rabbit looked at the flatness of the meadow and decided to cross the vast area. The wolf started pounding after the rabbit in is careless pursuit of him.

The wolf ran near a tree that housed a bumble bee nest. The bees were abnormally active for this time of day. When the wolf ran near, his hind end hit the tree when he turned. The bees swarmed down upon the wolf.

The rabbit looked back in morbid relief as the bees went for the eyes of the wolf.

After a few minutes, the rabbit hiding, the wolf got into the pond next to the meadow. Leaving the bees to go back to their nest

Old Photo

“He was supposed to be mine”, “What does she have that I don’t have”, were some of her rants.

The fathers of the couple had agreed to the possibility of a marriage years before. The older sister had it in her head that the groom would be hers. She had a high opinion of herself, thinking less of the youngest sister.

When the groom came to meet the sisters, he took one look at the youngest and new that she was the one for him. She was beautiful, smart, and sweet. He thought that she would be the perfect wife for him.

The oldest sister came of as arrogant, hateful, and condescending. He knew that this would not be good for his shop at home or his family.

Right before the picture was taken, the brides father told the oldest sister that if she made another scene, he was shipping her off to a nunnery. Therefore, when the picture was taken, everyone was trying to get through the pictures.


Writing assignment

There is a quote from the Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon that  states “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”.

This quote was said by the character Acheron who is the leader and turns out to be a form of a Greek God. I find it fascinating because it is so true. Many people in this world do things just because they can. They really don’t think about the people that are affected by their decisions or actions.

Just because you can do a cartwheel, doesn’t mean you should. You might hit the person next to you. Just because you can steal something, doesn’t mean that that something means something to who you steal it from. Maybe it is the last thing a loved one gave them before they died. Maybe it is the only money they have to pay their bills.
