Trifextra 68 – Small Steps


His nerve was failing. His mother knew it.

“You can do it honey!” she urged. Heart pounding.

Just the final loop. In. Through. Out. Pull.

He’d done it! Now for the other shoe.

This is my entry into the Trifextra challenge for Week 68.

      Much appreciated Angie. My aim was to make it feel like the words were almost not there. They were but you didn’t really notice. You just read a 33 word story which happened to have three particular words in it. Thanks for commenting.

        You and the world shall have my best Ann. May not be better than anybody else’s but it will be the best I can do 🙂

      Thanks Ms. M. Really satisfying to hear you say my 33 words hit the spot. Pleased with my first attempt at this. Also looking forward to trying my hand at a longer piece next week.

    A great piece. The problem is that once he’s mastered tying his shoelaces, he has then to learn that painful skill of fastening a tie! Life is hell for young lads!
