Writing prompt: Relax

It was impossible. The thought of him let alone sharing physical space with him disgusted her. The site of him seized her body: her nerves repulsed, her heart raced, her mouth dried, the blood rushed to her head. She felt dizzy and weak. She breathed, swallowed, sighed. She long ago mastered the artistry of puppetry with this clown. Her spouse, the louse. Politics required her, she knew he was nothing without her. His arrogance will backfire. His offenses will surface. She trusts that his enemies will act in due time. Then she will toss the puppet strings aside and relax.

    1. Crazy train imagination is probably an accurate description! Maybe I should add that to skills and characteristics when interviewing? These prompts are an effective way to get me out of my head, and in doing so, I guess I let you in? As always thank you for leading me to a thin sprial notebook. Happy Tuesday to you my friend.

  1. Excellent take on the prompt! Dammit. Not another 100-word challenge… sigh. I already do one on Wednesdays and a 150-word one on Saturdays. I like that this is based on one word though.
    And this was more than excellent. I take my first word back. It was powerful. I have to agree with Marc, you definitely wield a powerful pen.
