Writing prompt: Relax

She long ago mastered the artistry of puppetry with this clown. Her spouse, the louse.

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. You wield a powerful pen, Lady Craven!
    I love when a writer culls from their imagination, entirely. It’s like you get a look inside their crazy train imagination.
    To you!

  3. 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.
