This week’s 100WCGU was to write a short story including the prompt …as the apple fell… making the story 104 words in total. Here’s my entry:
Lauren walked slowly along the deserted corridor, stopping to give the apple a polish. It was a bit silly really, ‘an apple for the teacher,’ but she thought he would appreciate the joke. She stopped just outside the room when she heard a familiar giggle. ‘Oh David, no… What about Lauren?’
‘What about her? She’s a nice girl, but Jemma… She’s a girl. It’s just a crush, she’ll grow out of it. I will keep tutoring her though, she needs all the help she can get if she’s…’
As the apple fell from Lauren’s hand, all the colour drained from her face.
