This contest asks writers to pen a flash in 99 words composed in tweets: 11 tweets, 9 words each. Here’s my attempt (not an entry, just challenging myself for fun). First are the actual tweets, then, same story in 11 sentences (each with 9 words).
Psst…the tweets are interactive. Like, RT, or reply right from this post. Give it a go…
They find me. Crouched behind a rusted filing cabinet.
Gloved hands grip my bare arms, lifting me easily.
Shoving me into bright sun outside the hospital ward.
I run back, stumble, fall hard on the asphalt.
I reach for the door. I reach for him.
Balancing on my left palm, I almost make it.
With their heavy boots, they step on my fingers.
They laugh. I shout. They threaten. I kick. Dammit!
They grab me, make me promise to stay away.
Tell me he is sick and dangerous. They lie.
Then, again, so do I. They will die tonight.
