There are so many great writers participating!  These bloggers take the words, creating unexpected stories, poems….

This is the third week of November, already...42 more days until Christmas....  Here are two sets of words and a sentence prompt.  Use all or part.

Door, roll, fluctuation, ignore, personality, mother

And/or

Hilarious, north, dividend, particular, use, temple

Sentence:

He looked at his phone, turned pale, then quickly left the room. She watched him, smiling.

  Now, isn’t that provocative?

You may post your creation in the comment section below or write that you will posting at your own site on whatever day.  Help us find you! 
Now, have at it! (I will be posting here on Friday.)

The creator of Wednesday Words is Delores at Under the Porchlight. She passed the baton to other bloggers, wonderful bloggers.  My turn is the month of November.  Who will be in December or January?  Wait and see.

  1. Sounds like she gave him some news or was about to stab him in his sleep.

  2. She had talked to him. And talked to him. Her words went in one ear and out the other. Not touching the sides. Leaving no trace. HIS daughter was perfect. Purer than the driven snow.
    She thought, and thought some more. And forwarded the link to the precious one's latest FB post. A picture tells a thousand words. He looked at his phone, turned pale, then quickly left the room. She watched him, smiling.

    2. That is so good. The FB captures all, leaves no one immune. Go get 'em.

  3. And this is my story for this week...using the words and the phrase....

    "It was payback time. Deep in thought, unconsciously she rubbed her TEMPLE. She knew she couldn’t just let it ROLL, not with what he’d done. He wasn’t going to get away with it. She wasn’t going to IGNORE his latest April Fool’s joke, HILARIOUS though it had been.

    Her PERSONALITY mirrored that of her MOTHER, in PARTICULAR. Her mother had been the best practical joker, and she’d had the wildest sense of humour. She’d also inherited her father’s inventive mind. The DIVIDEND from the combination of their inherited genes when compounded with her own mischievous ingenuity was explosive. Anyone who thought she was a walk-over was a fool asking for trouble...fun trouble!

    As he reached the DOOR, HE LOOKED AT HIS PHONE, TURNED, PALE, THEN QUICKLY LEFT THE ROOM. SHE WATCHED HIM, SMILING. She knew he’d be heading NORTH.

    There would be no FLUCTUATION today in his daily routine; his patterns never changed. She could count on it. She had him right where she wanted him; and he didn’t have a clue!

    The best was to come. She’d make USE of his being a creature of habit. His not varying from his customary practices was going to be his downfall. It was as easy as shooting ducks in a barrel...she giggled."

    1. Excellent use of words intermingled with the sentence prompt! I wish we could see the next paragraph.

    1. I didn't mention sin....there's nothing sinful in sharing a joke or three - in having a bit of fun...more fun is needed in this world of ours. :)

    2. "Sin" as in a wrong done in the past that has hurt someone--it is a phrase or adage from some where. What goes around, comes around...

  5. Ooooh! Love that sentence, it has so many possibilities, such potential.

    I'm December.

  7. The door to Mother Nature's temple opens softly with the dawn each day. We often portray her personality as gentle, beautiful, kind and nurturing... Which is true.
    It is also true that she is as harsh, inflexible and unforgiving as the frozen north. Her frozen north. I sometimes think that she finds our dangerous short-sightedness hilarious.
    The fluctuations in the way she chooses to manifest herself are not entirely random. We do have a part to play (sometimes) in which way she will roll. If we respect her gifts the dividend is huge, balmy skies and fertile land. If we choose to ignore her power and plunder the temple the pay back is equally huge. Tsunamis, earthquakes, flood, and famine. For starters.
    She isn't particular. The rich and the poor feel her bounty and her wrath. Benefactor or destroyer? Which will it be? What do we choose...
