A Question of Us: Trifextra Writing Challenge

21 Sep

“Describe something that is three different things at the same time.  Oh, and do it in 33 words.”

Easier said than done, Trifecta. Well, here goes…

The new life they both cradled told tales about them.

They exchanged a nervous look and considered three.

What they had done together;

What they had not done together;

And one more thing…

Head over to http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com for the weekend ‘Trifextra’ challenge, and much more wonderous wordage.

    Don’t leave us hanging, yo. What they were GOING TO DO together? Yes!

    I love that trailing ending. It opens up a whole realm of possibilities.

    Yes. I agree. The ending is perfect. For 33 words, you said a lot.

    Yeah, I agree. You have left us with a real teaser. Nice one!

    Oh, this is nice. The things they did together; the things they didn’t; the three. Beautifully said.

    reminds me of a song popular a long time ago – Ah sweet mystery of life – at last I’ve found you . . .

    This is a great bit of writing 😀 And I also love the trailing ending…. it leaves us wondering where this could lead…. 😀
