Missing Shoe

By Teresa Dean Smeigh

copyright November 2015

 

Nancy ran, quickly, stumbling on her heels. Her pursuer was gaining rapidly.

She stepped down on the drain and lost a shoe. She didn’t dare stop, he was too close.

“Hey lady, stop!” A man’s voice was shouting at her. No way was she stopping in this area.

“Lady please stop,” he said breathlessly.

Nancy tripped over a log and hurt her foot and had no choice, but to stop. She turned to face her attacker.

“Geesh lady, all I wanted to do was return your purse. You dropped it when you got out of the car.”

The Kidnapping – 9/7/15

Big Rig

                                                                  Big Rig

___________________________________________________________

The Kidnapping
By Teresa Dean Smeigh
Copyright September 7, 2015

Nancy and Claire were riding down the roadway with the radio blasting and the convertible top open.

Nancy pushed the accelerator down. She wanted to see how fast she could get the car flying.

Suddenly they spotted a large rig on the side of the road and what looked like three figures struggling next to it.

Nancy started slowing down and pulled off the road onto the shoulder behind the rig. The figures all looked up. The female kicked at the two men who were staring at the intruders.

“Nancy don’t stop, they look dangerous.”

“We can’t leave her here with them.”

She reached in the glove box and pulled out her service revolver. She stepped out of the car.

“Claire stay here!”

She headed over to the group and told the men to step back and let the girl go. They just laughed and started towards Nancy. She shot them both in the legs and they went down.

They were both stunned. This girl could shoot.
 
“Claire call Dad and tell him what we have here.”

“My Dad is the chief of police and will be here momentarily to pick you two up.”

Beep!

Written by Teresa Dean Smeigh

copyright November 2015

“Beep boop boop beep,” cooed little Arianna.

“Honey, honey wake up, Arianna is talking and it is time for her dinner,” Arlan picked up Arianna and carried her into Astrid.

“What are you talking about Arlan? We don’t have any children. How many times must I tell you that?”

Astrid screamed and jumped up confused and sleepy. I must be dreaming again!

“Get that thing away from me. Don’t the batteries ever wear out?”

“Astrid, Astrid wake up.”

“Honey why don’t you go to bed and I’ll feed Arianna?” By all means, feed your fancy doll!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Astrid walked into the kitchen where she heard noises. Now there was a large purple and green character in her kitchen with the small one called Arianna. I must be dreaming!

“Beep boop boop beep,” the large one said

Astrid fainted.

“Honey what happened? We are going to be late for the costume party. Put on your costume and grab the doll. I was just practicing our lines.”

The Muse Amuses
By Teresa Dean Smeigh
Copyright October 2015

Happily I write.
The pen scribbles , the muse thinks,
Provides what I need.

Rules:

The rules are simple.

  • Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com.
  • The two words can be used as you like. Words have different definitions and you can use the definitions you like. You can even use a synonym word as long as it does not change the meaning. Go to Thesaurus.com for Synonym help.
  • Copy the link of your finished haiku URL  in a comment so we can all go and visit your site to see what you have done. I will comment on your site. You can do a ping back. What’s a ping back? Put a link back to this prompt page, if you like within your post, as long as it does not take away from your haiku. This is simply a prompt and challenge to encourage people to try Haiku and give some a prompt and a place to share in comments so we can find each other. A link in your post does give others a chance to find us and join in. Use one of the two below if you like.
  • Ping back Link https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/10/26/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-68-muse-pen/
  • Non Ping back Link https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/
  • You may copy one of the badges/images appearing in this post below or above and place it on your site if you wish, most normally use it within their post. I am not saying you need to, but if you would like to do so then go ahead. It is simply my way of saying thank you for participating. I sometimes make custom images for the week, if time and health permits.
  • The Challenge is currently posted at 8 AM New York City time on Mondays to give people a better chance than the old 9 AM time.
  • Deadline is Noon New York City time on the Sunday following the Challenge Post release.

The Challenge Words!

Word Prompt– Week of 09-22-2015

woman painting

Bonnie
Written by Teresa Dean Smeigh
Copyright September 2015

She tried to concentrate on her painting, but she could hear soft noises from over by the large oak tree.

“Mommy?” came a little child’s voice. Then “Mommy, is that you?”

Bonnie walked over to the tree to confront the intruders. Standing there was a cop holding a little girl’s hand. The little girl had red hair and freckles just like Barbie.

Barbie stared and the little girl said, “Mommy, I missed you!”

“Ma’am, I am sorry to intrude, but our investigation has dug up the information that this little girl is yours.”

“But my sister told me she drowned,” tears running down her face.

“When a report came through the station with the sighting of a little girl screaming that the woman wasn’t her mommy, they held them and investigated and found the drowning report. Your sister finally confessed.”

“Oh Barbie, I’ve missed you so much.”

Another writing question. Looking for opinions.

What’s your opinion?

Tessa Can Do It! Positivity is Catching!

I am writing a memoir. For those that aren’t sure what that is, it is a section of your life story, but not the whole story. Now I am starting from when I was a military wife and then planned on continuing to the divorce. So that would be my whole marriage. But the title is “Government Property – A Memoir of a Military Wife.” So now I am wondering if I should cut it down to just include the military years.  What do you think?
