Challenge: Write a story in 25 words or less.

Theme: Safe

Participants: Anyone. You don't have to be an author. I'm not.

What you can't do: If you are an author, do not mention it. This means no links.

What you can do: If you are an author, put information about your books on your profile page. Link your books, webpage, or Amazon author page.

Comments: If you want to comment on another person's writing, please be positive. This is not a critique thread. We want any and all participants to feel comfortable and enjoy participating, whether they've never written anything more than an email or they've sold 20,000 books.

I will begin in my next post. Have fun!

She said, "I want to feel safe, if only for this night. Why do churches lock their doors to keep the poor outside?" Jesus wept.

The dark hall echoed with creepy sounds. Whispers filled the air. Untold tricks played on the senses.

- Safe at last, he thought.

The cries around him of "safe" were strange. The ballpark wasn't that close.

He never saw the plummeting missile that ended his life.

The meteorite hit with the force of an exploding sun. The blast carried all before it.

The ostrich found a safe place for its head.

Nestled in securely under my arm, he slept. I wonder if he'll ever feel this safe again? Gently, I stroke his hair.

Ku says:
The speck of pollen danced upon the wind through the spring air and was pulled into a dark orifice.

It was safe until he sneezed.

Would she ever feel safe after the brutal attack? She still could not look in the mirror at her once beautiful face, now scarred forever.

Derek Powell says:
"Are we safe?" she asked, trembling.
He laughed. "Safe?!? The film's title is 'Blood Show: Part 12.' No one's safe!"
And he pulled his knife.

The horrifying screams reverberated through the still darkness. The unmistakable sound of gunfire chasing the screams until it silenced them. The safe house was not!

(Let us bring the good gardener back then)

The gardener gently turned the handle, pushed open the door, and slipped into the house. Safely inside he crept closer, pausing to watch her shower.

Safe. And he dives in for second and the catch is late and he is safe. It is the bottom of the ninth.

Ready! Aim! Fire!
The shots echoed off the walls of the small courtyard, announcing that no-one was safe anymore.

She sensed his wanton stare, turned toward him and slipped the shower curtain open. Was it safe to inch closer? Her sensual smile said yes!
