All true stories.

Confused

Several thuds, then a knock. Nonagenarian Vivian invited the anxious young man inside. She offered him a soda and prayer.

Another loud knock. Sheriff’s deputies swarmed in and arrested the alleged bank robber.

Bewildered officer questioned Vivian who replied, “I thought he came to check on me after that earthquake.”

(50 words)

Fearful

Tracie’s hazel eyes tracked Corkscrew as the roller coaster careened around loops of twisted steel. She shuddered and suggested the carousel instead.

“Just close your eyes and scream,” Brianne suggested.

Best friends boarded the coaster. They shrieked until the ride stopped.

Stumbling off, Tracie announced, “Let’s ride it again!”

(49 words)

Bold

Carefully she pulled out each drawer just far enough to create steps to climb up to the kitchen counter. From there, she stood, extended tiny arms and boosted herself on top of the refrigerator where she sat patiently.

Mother discovered her fearless toddler, and remembered her own childhood tree-climbing escapades.

(50 words)


Surprised

“Aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwaaaaahhhhhh.”

Startled, jet-lagged women peeked outside and spotted a twirling peacock beckoning for a monsoon mate. The spots on its sapphire and jade tail feathers stared at the tourists like dozens of curious eyes.

“Take a picture of the welcoming committee.”

What a way to begin their stay in India.

(50 words)

Calm

By trust, she obeyed God and climbed into the swimming pool to be baptized. The instant her feet touched the bottom, she felt calm. Twenty-five years of fearing water melted away. The pastor prayed and dunked her underwater.

She emerged reborn. Tears streamed across her jubilant face as everyone rejoiced.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You made great pictures for the reader to visualize each little story.

These are wonderful. I really love Confused, but they're all great.
Tammy Johnson 28 Sep 2007
I think the "emotional" must have scared people away. ;) I chuckled when I saw what you did - so clever. Enjoyed reading them! (And the last one is so my friend!! She was just baptized this past summer and worried sick about being in the water!)

Seema, all I can say is Wow! I loved them all! That first one made me laugh. They were written with delicious verbal spice.
