Cafe Muravyets posted the following challenge:
Write a story with exactly 50 words not including the optional title. You have to use the following five words somewhere, somehow, but not in the optional title (sandbar, onerous, wink, manoeuvre and nightly). The theme was dreaming and home.
You can get to the challenge via the link below:
I have never done a 50 word challenge before but here it goes:
In a lucid dream sweet Adonis once gave her a wink. Now nightly she programs her mind to escape an onerous marriage she sincerely vowed to keep. Far from home in a world of her own she manoeuvres her way over mountainous dunes to a sandbar where true love awaits.
