100 Word Challenge for grown Ups Week #33


This week’s prompt from Julia is an image of one of the wonderful sculptures at the Eden Project, a Heather Jansch horse.

Apparently no-one will ‘get’ my flash this week but I’ve been dared to post it anyway!

Eden Horse

My back’s numb thank God, but I’m worried my arm’s so blue. There’s some light coming in the window, so someone’s gonna come soon. Then I’ll know my fate. I spect I’ll be out of a job. I’ve heard it’s worth thirty thousand pounds. Can’t see it myself. I was dusting see. I wondered how it stayed in one piece, so I crouched down to look for some screws. Just a tiny tug and I found out there aren’t many. It creaked, and slipped an bit, so I held it still else it’d collapse. I’ve been holding it all night.

  1. Stunning sculpture! :)

  2. You must have written that in seconds! I have only just got the prompt.

  3. Oh, and I guess you should never be trusted to do the cleaning!

  4. LOL…that is a lot to hold.

  5. Cool! Nice work! Love the horse too!

  6. Is that a driftwood horse? I think I’ve seen photos of them somewhere else. Also, just wanted to say, I hope someone has come to your rescue by now, perhaps with some screws? LOL .

  7. what a hero … a reward is more likely!

  8. It’s amazing where being concerned about dust gets you! Love it!

  9. Love that horse sculpture!

  10. Clever Gilly and you continue to meet the writing challenge. Good for you! Another way to be creative my friend. Margie

  11. Great take on the prompt!

  12. You have such a creative mind, this is exceptional! I understood it perfectly – I just hope someone comes before his blue arm turns purple!

  13. Very clever. I like it a lot!

  14. so… he’s holding it and stuck in one place for fear it’ll fall?

    Ha-ha, this made me chuckle. Of course we get it, very amusing interpretation of the prompt!

  16. This is a really interesting approach to the prompt. I love how the image takes us all in different directions. I love your descriptions here as well.

  17. Great aproach- reminded me of the boy who put his finger in the dam. Clever writing.

  18. This left me with a fantastic mental picture. I do hope someone arrived soon to rescue her!

  19. I would get it…too short…never…

  20. Gilly – I love that! It’s so well written, and says just enough.
    Great opening line too.
    (I shall certainly think twice before letting you loose with a duster anywhere!)
    (But on second thoughts, that is some commitment, to sit and hold it all night!!)

  21. Very well written and cleverly done. x

  22. Oh boy! How tragic! ;-)

I would love to hear from you . . .
