Jenny M's Saturday Centus

This post is linked to Saturday Centus Week 2. A 100 word story based on a prompt. The prompt is in bold below.

The small Cessna 172 picked up speed as it roared down the runway, Sara at the controls, the flight instructor beside her.

Finally something wonderful had happened breaking the run of bad luck Sara had been living for so long.

When the Flight Instruction School had called, Sara had almost hung up.

Until she looked at the caller ID, Sara had been certain that the call about winning 10 flying lessons was a hoax!

This first flight was the introduction to the package and Sara felt giddy!

As the ground unfolded below the Cessna, Sara was startled to feel the plane shudder.

Turning to question the instructor, Sara was shocked to see him slumped against the controls...either dead or unconscious...

Oh dear, whatever will the ever resourceful Sara do...?

Viki said...

Oh no, poor Sara. This is when I wish there were more than 100 words.

Connie said...

That's it? What's going to happen! I love how you said the ground unfolded. Great writing.
It must not just be Sara having bad luck but those who are with her!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Girl, your brain is amazing and your words are so descriptive. You always create such vivid images.

Cheryl said...

Are you kidding me?!?! Go on add a few dozen more words.

Sara is having a no good, terrible, horrible, very bad time of things. To say nothing of that poor instructor.

You rocked this Mrs. J!

My name is PJ. said...

Very well done, Matlock! This is a great weekly exercise. Everyone seems to be going someplace different with it! You are a genius.

I guess I've been watching too many episodes of "24" lately. Whenever I see a sentence like your last one, or see it acted out on TV or in the movies, I laugh REALLY loud!

Terra said...

Oh Jenny, I wondered if someone would go there. I was afraid with 100 words to try! Shame on me. Way to go. You pulled it off. THe slumped instructor is great!

A great story and so well written. I could feel the ground falling away, and when the plane shuttered, I did, too.

PS: Thanks for all your help.
