Thanks Mum.

This is part of a 3 word challenge that I like to do to a lot, it warms me up so I can get on with my writing of Book 3 (I will give it a title soon). Occasionally I do one that I like, those are the ones I will share with you.

Would you like to have a go? Use these 3 words and link it to my page, have fun.

The 3 words for this are luck, sandwich, necklace

Thanks Mum.

Nell fiddled with her necklace as she tried to decide between prawn and tuna, she stood by the display not knowing which to choose, normally her necklace would give her the answer. She had never been able to make decisions until she noticed that when she wore the pendant her Mum had bought her when she did finally make a decision it was generally the right one, she liked to think that she was carrying around a little bit of her Mum with her. But today it seemed even her Mum didn’t have an answer for her.

She knew it was stupid but she had come to rely on her necklace now but as she twisted and turned it in her fingers she was getting nothing from it, come on Mum she thought which sandwich do I want. She was aware it was becoming a bit of an obsession for her. She waited, people pushed past her, heaving sighs at her getting in the way, the lady behind the counter was watching wondering if she would ever decide. Then it broke, the pendant tumbled from her neck and rolled across the shop floor, she chased it praying it didn’t roll underneath one of the chiller cabinets.

As she ducked down to try and retrieve it there was a commotion by the sandwich stand, she looked around to see the stand fall forward onto a man, who had chosen his tuna sandwich, it had him pinned to the ground, shop staff rushed to his aid, he was okay.

She was okay too, she picked up the pendant, looked at it, yes it was bringing her good luck too. “Thanks Mom” she whispered as she tucked it safely into her pocket.
