X-ray – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

When the x-ray showed her leg was broken in two places, the doctor checked Liza’s chart to see that it only said she had fallen. He asked her if she could be more specific.  With a blush of embarrassment, she told him she had tripped over her cat while on her way to fix breakfast and tumbled down the stairs.

What A View – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socsbadge2016-17

 

 

Marcia stood on the balcony of  her second-story room at the lodge. She stared up at the stars, admiring the view she had of them out here, so far away from the city lights that tend to drown out their shine. There were so many bright stars to see out in the country, she loved the sight and could watch them all night.

A shooting star streaked across the sky, and Marcia made a wish as a tear slipped from the corner of her eye. She wished Jimmy could be there to see the view the with her – and so she could catch a view of his sweet face again, smiling at her.

A faint rustling noise from the woods across the wide yard from her caught her attention, and she glanced down from the night sky to look. In the faint moonlight she spotted a shadowy figure at the edge of the woods. She leaned a bit over the balcony railing, trying to get a better look.

It looked like the shadow of a person, but she couldn’t tell if it was a man or woman, and it looked like they were dragging something big and long into the woods. As she watched, what looked like an arm fell to the side of the form being dragged.

Marcia’s eyes widened and she covered her mouth as she gasped.

The lodge had advertised amazing, memorable night views, but this wasn’t exactly the sort of view she’d expected.

She turned away and hurried back into her room for her phone.

Matter – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

“Captain!” came the call over the intercom.

With a sigh, Captain Wilson closed his book and hit the intercom button. “What is it, Miles?” he said tersely. “I thought my standing orders were that I was not to be disturbed when I was reading unless it was a matter of utmost importance.”

“This is a matter of utmost importance, sir!”

“Well, what’s the matter, then?”

“It’s the dark matter reactor, sir! It’s about to go critical!”

“Why didn’t you tell me sooner!”

“We didn’t want to disturb you, sir, and thought we could correct the problem ourselves before it got out of hand.”

“Obviously, you were wrong.”

“Yes, sir.”

“There’s nothing that can be done, then?”

“No, sir.”

“Issue the order to abandon ship, then.”

“Yes, sir!”
