Claudia's First Saturday Centus

Claudia's First Saturday Centus

I am taking part in a writing exercise called Saturday Centus. We are given a prompt and from there, we write a 100 word story.

Today's prompt is: The small Cessna 172 picked up speed as it roared down the runway, Sara at the controls, the flight instructor beside her,


With a strong sense of envy, Sara sat on the deck watching geese fly over her pond, on their journey, going south. And she had never left New England.

She began to day dream, seeing white sand, clear water, herself lying in a lounge chair slathered with sunscreen, reading Vogue through Valentino shades. The handsome man two chairs over was not wearing a wedding ring; there was no telltale pale circle on that finger.

The honking of the geese interrupted her thoughts, and shaking her head clear, she dashed into the house and found the number for the nearest flight school.

This story if linked to Saturday Centus. Link on the left side of this page!
