Another entry from a teacher turned writer! This is Cherise Duxbury’s entry for Week#4 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups over at the Head’s Office.

Her inspiration came from a cricket match! The 5 prompt words are in bold print.

*********************************

The evocative evening sky began to tease and threaten, with its brooding black clouds creeping ever closer.  Unmoving and silent, the three of them stood waiting … waiting to be knocked over, declaring him out!   Determined and with a gentle lilt, he ran towards them, throwing with all of his might, willing it to hit the target.  A ripple of applause floated in the air as the sense of foreboding intensified.  Untoward, a white player leapt forward as the sound of wood hitting ball cracked – “catch….!”  The batter watched with a sense of apprehension as the fielder dived forward, his hands reaching for his prize.
