Six on the Sixth: January

This post is for Adam Icke’s Six on the Sixth Challenge – six six word stories – one for each of the six prompts. Each one stands alone from the rest. 6on6


Unease gripped her. Something was gone.


Twisted hat lay discarded: apology refused.


Confidence shone: she owned the stage.


“Approach,” he growled from his armchair.


Future happiness beckoned; old promises bound.


Teacher’s praise set shy smile alight.

    • Thank you, Adam. 🙂 I was thinking of my grandfather (who we all called grumpy grandpops) as I wrote that one!


  2. Nice. I like the unfurl, and the image of the smile unfurling at her face.

    • Thank you, Etol. That final one probably took my longer to write than all the rest of them together! I’m glad you like it. 🙂
