It is Thursday evening, not quite Friday but it is good enough to tell tales of 100 words on Friday Fictioneers. We are hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple. Here’s my 100 words prompted by this week’s photo.
Her head was spinning like a carousel out of control. Her heart pounded. Lub dub! Lub dub! She crossed her arms across her chest as if to hold the sound in. She bent over, taking a deep breath.
Her head cleared. She sighed in relief. She could think again. She was tired of being down trodden, being at everyone’s beck and call, pleasing them, cheering them on. There was no time for herself. There was no her.
“I’m tired of it. Damn it all to hell!” She muttered. “I’ll have no more of it. I know what I will do.”

Oooo, what will she do I wonder?
Great take on the prompt. I too am curious about here intentions. I hope she doesn’t own guns.
Maybe words are enough. Thanks for reading!
Search situations vacant? Somehow, I don’t think so.
She should prioritize herself. Go, girl!
She really should!
Great first paragraph (Lub Dub!).
Like the way you’ve left us hanging…
I think there’s two alternatives hang on or jump
Hanging on is detrimental, I would think.
You go girl!
I love the rhythm in this piece.
Thank you, Alicia!
Yes, the rhythm in your story is wonderful and quite immediate! One feels pulled in, right there with your protagonist. I hope that what she does is LEAVE, strike out on her own. I felt like her until June of this year. I’m home free, and I feel GREAT!
Thank you! I’m happy that you are home free.
I like the rhythm, too. I hope she finds a good way to live her life.
I know exactly how she feels. 😉 I hope her ending is a happy one. Well done.
Looks like she now realizes her worth as a person. Good for her. I hope she does something worthwhile with it. Well done, Lily. 🙂 — Suzanne
Thank you, Suzanne!
I like her determination
Thank you! I do, too.
