With this piece I’m participating in a collaborative initiative between Dude Write and 100 Word Song.
Fictional piece of exactly 100 words.
Inspired by “Strength” by The Alarm.
For visual and auditory reference, here:
This is it: the ultimate test that separates the strong from the weak. I’ve lasted for more than thirty minutes, but I know it’s far from over. I need strength to make it through.
As I pace back and forth in the corner I stare into the cold, cold soul of my nemesis. It’s just the two of us now, there’s nobody here to help me fight back.
I need strength to fight back…
I give up. I’m just not strong enough.
I rip the lid off the tub of ice cream, grab a table spoon, and dig right in.
