100 Words Challenge: Storm Front

Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge lost its mojo for a bit, but is once again rising. This week's word is "Storm", and my entry is called "Storm Front"

Katie pulled her covers over her shoulders, tucking them under her chin. She wanted to pull them higher, but she always got hot and panicky when her mouth was covered. Outside, the rain poured down, pushed by the wind against her window with an intense rattle. She listened carefully, wanting to hear nothing. Mommy wasn't yelling any more, so that was good. She didn't hear the door shut or the car start, so Daddy was still here. Katie couldn't hear anything bad, which was good: but the waiting was as bad as the good parts were good.


  1. That's a storm I remember riding out many times as a kid too. Great take on the prompt!

  2. Aw, poor kid. Very well written!

  3. When people GET it - when they understand how DV affects kids - I feel my work is accomplishing something. Thanks for this - good tke on the prompt.

  4. Very good take on the prompt. A storm that should never happen.
