His plan was infallible this time.
We weren’t sure, but he insisted.
Sleeping pills would put them down.
Hanging would kill them for good.
But the giants were too big.
An inch short from finally succeeding.

Her mind started to drift off.
She saw flashes of her life.
Entering that dreamy state of unconsciousness.
She heard bongos playing somewhere close.
Laying on a carpet of leaves.
The winds swept her live away.
This post was written in response to the Six on the Sixth Prompt – March 2016, hosted by Adam Ickes. The idea is to write 6 6-word stories. He provides us with 6 prompt words that we can use on our stories or not. The words this month were MIND | FLASH | ENTER | BONGO | CARPET | SWEPT, and I chose to use them.

(…or on the eleventh, as I never get to do it on the right date… ;o)
This month, the prompt words for the Six on the Sixth challenge are
GOBLIN | SPIT | SHINE | BELITTLE | GAPE | MAINTENANCE
This time I tried to link them all, and created a 36-word story composed of 6 6-word sentences, each featuring one of the prompt words.
The hardest one for me was maintenance.
This is how it ended up:
GOBLIN: Wizards and goblins brewing a potion.
SPIT: Toad's spit to top it off.
SHINE: The liquid boiled, the vial shone.
BELITTLE: Some saw nothing special on it.
GAPE: The others were open-mouthed in astonishment.
MAINTENANCE: Drinking it, they would be silenced.

This month I decided to try the Six on the Sixth challenge, posted by Adam Ickes.
In this challenge, he suggests some prompt words and encourage us to write 6 six-word stories based on not on the prompts.
Here are mine.
Can’t you ever do it right?
Missed ball, angrily throws his cap.
Coming back home, she looked splendid.
You know nothing! Lemme do it.
Love each other. Divorce papers torn.
Spring has already come; petals unfurl.
