There is this writing challenge on Write To Done website.
This time it was “Scene Stealers”. The rules are that you get a frase or two and you need to use this frase to create your own scene. Max 350 words. The frase was: “She looked down on the village that had been her home until she was eighteen years old. Anna was so sure she’d never return, but”.
Mine is like this:
It wasn’t the best time for Anna. A year of not the best time. And every time that she’s coming back to that day, when everything started, she’s sure that there were no signs of it all coming. Now she’s here again.
She looked down on the village that had been her home until she was eighteen years old. Anna was so sure she’d never return, but as things didn’t go as she planned there’s no surprise in her coming back either.
Everything seemed different. Houses, fields. She smiled to herself.
– It’s almost funny, this place. See? I was playing there, close to that red house, when I was little. I would swear it was much bigger.
They stood there in silence. Anna wanted to remember. She was looking for something in her mind, she didn’t even know what exactly it was. This memory was well hidden.
– Let’s go. I’ll show you more places. It’s a small village, but it has special places. At least, I hope they are still here.
While walking Anna was looking for a clue, for some kind of sign. Last year events where strangely connected with her memories, or rather forgotten memories.
She almost couldn’t hear anything, she began to feel dizzy, her heart started to beat so fast she could feel like her chest was moving with it.
“It really happened, it really happened” was trembling in her mind. A scream! It wasn’t her. She started to look around , but there wasn’t anyone beside Liz. It wasn’t Liz either. Memories started to come back, fast, they where overwhelming her.
“It really happened”.
Any thoughts? Please, share them in comments.
I’m not completely happy about it, but as it was a long time I didn’t write I decided to not change anything. I’ll get into my “old writing” with small steps. One by one.
Now, if you’re curious about others “stolen scenes” you can visit this link and take a look.
See you soon
