Curtained


My curtains keep the sun from stealing the color from my new furniture.  My curtains hide me from the repo man.  My curtains make a blanket on the sidewalk outside my former home.


This was written for The Trifecta Writing Challenge.  We were to write a 33-word story illustrating three uses of one object.

This is a sad tale, to be sure. I hope it's fiction. Very nicely done.

I agree with Lumdog. Sad and hopefully fiction...

that is a sad end, but an interesting take on what a curtain can be used for.

Writing in 33 words is forcing me to be precise. Thanks, Ruby.

A tragic life turn in only 33 words. Well done.

This is a heart-wrenching story. Well-done.

Ouch! Too familiar for me. My parents taught me young to swear off Rent-a-Center and the like (You can rent what you need at AllRentCo, the only way to go!), and I never could figure out why people went that route until I was older. And then, I just felt horrible. For my own ignorance, for them renting furniture that they would never keep.

Very creative take on the prompt. Something, I hope, that is all fiction. Thanks for linking up with us this week. Be sure to come on back tomorrow for the new challenge.

I love your choice of object and how it tells the story from sun to repo to sidewalk. Well done!
