100 WC by Clodagh

No mum!

 

She shut the door. She was gone. Mum was gone. Gone on holidays with yet ANOTHER new boy-friend. She had left me all alone to mind my six younger siblings all by myself.

 

I thought everyone else was asleep, but it turns out that Annie and Gerald were watching and looked devastated. I tried tickling them to cheer them up. Annie ran but Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing.

 

Mum said she would be back in a week, but it’s been a month and she still hasn’t come home. I don’t think she ever will, but I hope she will.

  1. Wow Clodagh!!! That is a wonderful piece of writing. You made really good use of the prompt turning a humorous prompt into a tragedy. I also liked the way you laid out the piece, your paragraphing added a real sense of drama.
    Super Writing, keep up the great work!
