#100WordChallenge: Forever

Image found on


Didn’t think I’d be getting another post up this soon, but yay for sudden inspiration! I also wasn’t planning on putting forth yet another serial, but here I am with Provisional Freedom. As of right now it’s a stub of an idea that resulted from a well-timed prompt or two. We got our first peek into the story with my post on Saturday – you can check it out here.

Prompt: Forever

It’s a short one, so happy reading!


I’m not sure how long my mother and I have been stuck here. Forever is probably a good estimate, but we have no real way of knowing. We haven’t aged a second since setting foot here, the sun doesn’t set for what feels like days at a time, and I’ve long given up on trying to track the time.

Purgatory sucks, and I don’t even remember how we got here. How did we die? And why are we both here?

Not like it really matters. She says there’s a way out, and I think she really believes it this time.


I didn’t name her in the previous post or this one, but there’s a snippet of my newest character, Paola. I’m definitely looking forward to flushing out her story and exploring her world.Seems like every time I hit a slump a new character crawls out of my brain to get me going. Hopefully this works!

Friendly reminder: Round 5 of #TuesFlashFicTrain is well underway! What are you waiting for?

As always, think happy thoughts!
