One could search a century and not find an answer.  His life is one of aimless searching and lost dreams.  He hopes the man in charge recognizes something inertly good in his tattered and beaten soul.

This fiction was written for Trifextra: Week Sixty-four.

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.

  1. After a rotten week like this one past, I’m sure many of us feel this way. Every step is a little harder and we wonder if we’re just going through the motions without any rhyme or reason. Great use of prompts, you!

  2. this was brilliant and a feeling that I am sure many of us share. “Will I be good enough? Am I worthy?”.
    I found myself holding back tears as I asked myself the same questions of the “man in charge”.
