Robyn Hood


This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:
  • charge
  • century
  • lost
So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around.

Three extra words this week?  Huzzah!






“ You've lost your damn mind.  They’re calling this ‘the crime of the century’!”

Suzanne shrugged.  “I don’t care.  Let them charge me.  I helped those kids and I have no regrets.  I wouldn't change a thing.”

  1. BRAVO! this was a perfect way to mix and match those words. "lost your damn mind" is always such a great way to start a story isn't it?

    I loved this.

    1. Many, many stories about me start with the line "You've lost your damn mind!", so this was familiar territory. *grin* I think I may run with this one. It's got potential.

      Thank you for your sweet comments!

  6. eek - hope that conviction serves her well in prison (and hope whatever she helped with was truly worth it, as many scenarios played through my mind, along with the sadness of this week's tragedy being in the foreground)

    1. Hmmm...I'm not so sure she's going to prison. She feels like the plucky sort of gal who manages to weasel out of prison time. ;)

  7. I like this, when the prompts don't stick out or sounds forced. The dialogue here rings true. Nice job.

    1. Oh, just a little garden-variety embezzlement, that's all. Rich corporations won't miss a few million, right?

      Thanks!

  11. I like the start "Have you lost your mind?" When I taught school, I would have a student on occasion to ask me if I was crazy. I was always tempted to say, "You better do what I say, I could be." lol Good job with the prompt.
