Here is my entry for this week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. The prompt is shown in blue:
The alarm went off, thankfully signaling the end of the trauma of the night now passed. The demons fled as the buzzer broke the silence. At last it was here. I had nowhere to go apart from downstairs. This was it.
I would have felt better with a night’s sleep but the pictures, lists, doubts and fears had just kept rolling through my mind like looped muzac.
No amount of pillow turning had been able to cool me down and the duvet showed all the signs of being in a terrifying battle.
Now it was here. I had to face it.
Another Monday morning!
