100WCGU: Daddy’s Girl

I only just realized we had a two week time allowance for the latest 100 Word Challenge for Grownups at Julia’s Place. I wasn’t going to do it, too much else going on right now, but then pop, into my mind came an idea, so here it is.
 
you bought her what
 
The prompt this week is to go back to last week’s entries. You are to use the last 10 words of the post next to yours and using just 100 words create a story. It may be a follow-on from the previous one or you may like to take it in a different direction. So:
  1. You find your entry HERE
  2. You go to the next entry (if you were 6 you go to 7 etc)
  3. Using the last ten words as the prompt you write your piece. The prompt can be anywhere in the piece but must be complete as it was in the original.
  4. If you didn’t take part last week, choose any entry to use the last 10 words from.

The link will stay open for two weeks and will close on 16th April.

My prompt for this one came from “Her Father’s Voice” at the blog Even More Bonus Parts. The last ten words for my prompt are these:

“All she needs is the sound of her daddy’s voice.” So, assuming I have 100 words plus the prompt, here is my tale of 108 words.

—————————————-
Daddy’s Girl   108 words
—————————————-

All she needs is the sound of her daddy’s voice.”

His wife’s voice echoed in his mind. Now, he sat by the hospital bed, looking upon his 15 year old daughter in an alcohol induced coma.

He wanted to cry out his rage. He wanted to yell at her, “What were you thinking?!” Anger and fear closed his throat like a tight fist, blocking all words from escaping.

He took several deep breaths. He cleared his throat, and managed a half choked whisper.

“Honey, it’s me, daddy. I love you.”

No change. He hadn’t expected one.

But the fist had loosened.

His words flowed on into the night.

  1. […] Word Challenge for Grownups, thank goodness we had two weeks, so I was able to get my short tale, Daddy’s Girl in on time. Just under the wire.  I only managed one Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Madison Woods. […]

  3. Oh this is so good! So harrowing but with such light at the end of it. I’m so glad it ‘popped’ in so that you could share it!
