Esther’s Challenge – Can You Tell A Story In . . .

It is Thursday and time for your latest five-word story challenge from Esther Chilton

This week, her single word prompt is DARK. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word DARK in it somewhere?

Please post your submissions in the Comments on this post.

This is an open invitation to all of my followers and Esther’s to have some fun with words. Remember that you can use words that are extensions of the prompt word, such as ‘darkness.’ The only limits are the boundaries of your imagination.

Here’s your starter:

Share your darkest, guilty secrets.

Esther and I await your submissions. Make us laugh and and entertain all of our followers with your witty flashes.

Have fun!

    Dawn – I see only darkness.
    A dark space between stars.
    His eyes went dark red.
    Below them it was dark.
    City lights dimmed into darkness.
    We live in dark times.
    Spiralling helplessly into the dark.
    White hands in dark fur.

  6. What about HER dark materials?
    Daughter of darkness, stay away!
    Damp, dark and heavenly haven.
    The house was in darkness.
    Delicious dark Brown Windsor soup.
    Enjoyed being plunged into darkness.
    They waited until darkness fell.
    They disappeared into the darkness.
    Sinister dark rings under eyes.
    Twin arches over dark thicket.
    Gaudi’s curves were often dark.
    Dark clouds across blue skies.
