Dragging through the house, her feet were lead, her arms hung limply at her sides. When he shot out of their bedroom, freshly washed and pressed for work, she had to grab the wall to keep from falling.

Planting a quick kiss on her forehead, he chirped over his shoulder, “another few days of Tamiflu and you’ll be back to normal.”

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘ to write a descriptive piece about being utterly drained, tired, exhausted, [insert other synonyms for tired here]. In 100 words of course.’

Trifecta, a weekly one-word prompt, challenges writers to use that word in its third definition form, using no less than 33 words or no more than 333. The week’s prompt is: Normal [noun \nawr-muhl\s] 3: a form or state regarded as the norm : standard
