100 Worder: Glint


100 Worder: Glint

Polly Sinclair

Freshly squeezed orange juice



She stretched out her arm across the bed. A fleck of gold from the lapis lazuli beads still around her wrist caught the light and momentarily dazzled her.
            Shane sighed heavily in his sleep but she had woken early; visions of missed trains and broken heels disturbing her slumber.

The clock blinked to 6:39 and she knew it was only a minute before the alarm would sound. She relished the blanket of peace and tranquillity that enveloped them.
            Today was the day. Everything had been leading here and in just a few hours she would finally know her fate.
