Here, as promised, is the second entry for VV’s 100 Word Challenge that I was able to bang out today. Titles have to be the second hardest thing for me when writing (the first, being able to come up with new and interesting names for characters, that fit who I want them to be), so do excuse me if my titles are ever lackluster. I try, but sometimes the most original I can come up with is the description of what I’m doing in the post. :-\
What’s really great, is this one also fits very well into the Clifton Saga.
The word, again, is Sainted:
“You should be sainted,” Lee told Sheila, finishing their first dinner together in years.
She turned from the fridge, wine in hand, and smiled bewilderedly. “Why do you say that?”
“You had to deal with Phillip AND my kid. You must have the patience of a saint.”
Sheila laughed, placing the wine bottle on the table after refilling their glasses.
“Phillip Senior was a hard man to live with, but Phillip Junior is an angel. It was for love.”
Pain crossed his face. “Did he ever want to be called Lee?”
A tear slid down her cheek. “All the time.”
Now, whatever else you do, head over to VV’s site and give some reader lovin’ to the other entrants in the challenge!
