50 Words Thursday # 53

Deb Whittam is the host of 50 Words Thursday this week.

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:


“Tom could see her tears as she wrote it.” The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith


It was the most difficult piece of writing Catherine had ever done. Tom could see her tears as she wrote it. He felt sorry for her but it was something only she could do. After she had done writing, she carefully folded the letter and put it in an envelope. Handing Tom the letter, she asked him to hand-deliver it. He took the letter and put it away in his pocket.

“They had a right to know and they should be told the truth”

“I know but it will break their hearts”

“You are following your dreams dear girl”


Word count; 100
