      星期日Brunch Prompted Writing Chatis an opportunity each week to test your skills at writing under pressure — or to have some fun without the need to be brilliant — or both!

      提示是挑战和起点,开放到创造性的解释。您可以用这些作为写出任何内心的借口,无论是小说还是创造性的非小说或两者的混合物。您可以为每个提示编写一个单独的件,或者尝试在一个故事中将它们全部链接在一起。

      If you join in the chat, you can add “an excuse to complain about unfair prompts” to the entertainment, too. But even if you can’t attend the chat session, feel free to give the prompts a try anyway (and leave your responses, comments, or complaints in this thread if you like).

      This week’s prompts are posted below.

      1. 使用以下五个单词:图片,娃娃,控制,规则,窃听。(10 min)

      2. Use the phrase, “Look at the shadow.”(10 min)

      3. Write about deciding if something is safe.(10 min)

      “那是什么......声音?”Skud想知道。

      “手机”,曾说,她占据了袋子中的喧嚣,并在屏幕上戳了绿色按钮。“苏珊卡尔蒙顿洛”,她说,让她的名字听起来像整个句子。

      沉默有很长的沉默,在此期间,苏西认为她想象着偷偷摸摸的莎拉的声音谈到尊耳的耳朵。不足以窃听,甚至可以确定它是真实的。

      “嗯,威霍斯”,曾说,以回应她刚刚倒入耳朵的任何东西。“我拿到了这张照片。我们喜欢,谈话吗?面对面就像?“她问。她转向抚顺苏西,并通过滚动眼睛辟身。“谢谢,那会很好,”她说了电话。

      “Your mother,” she said. “Zee’s mother,” she added since after all there were four of them living together, and everybody was at the table for once. “The control freak? She wants me to… I dunno, apprentice with her or something.”

      “她提供了一个有用的服务,”Susie说。“她是,什么,七十?有人最终应该接管诊所。“

      “我的上帝,吉姆,我是医生,而不是......”曾说。

      “奇迹工人?”苏西说,咧着嘴笑。她的手偏离了桌子越来越罗顿腹部。

      As was often the case, Zun followed her lead. “You okay, Zee?”

      “娃娃屋今天不稳定,”苏西说。“你?”

      “这是一个很好的方式来说,”曾王说。“我有一个......约会,我猜你可以叫它,我尊敬的婆婆德拉·哈特利博士。好吧,四个中的一个。“

      “Outlaws,” said Webb.

      “Well, I think of you peoples as my wife and two spouses,” said Zun.

      “香料?”苏西说。

      “呃......没有去那里,”韦伯说。“像香料女孩一样,老香料,没有任何地方都好。”

      “对不起,”Susie说。“我猜我们哈维莎是妻子,”她说。“妻子的妻子听起来不错......错误。”肚子里有那只手。

      “We’re a full house,” said Skud. “Three aces and a pair of Susans.”

      “And we seem to be…” said Susie.

      “伟大的孩子,”曾先生说。

      “我希望我们会成为,”韦伯说。“它必须奇怪,做出如此密切的事情。”

      “I guess?” said Zun.

      “最近似乎是我的更多,”Susie说。“只看我演员的影子。”他们中的四个是在他们家后面的阳台上吃早餐。苏西站起来,横向晒太阳,展示。

      “Anyway, Sarah,” said Zun. “I mean, I did pay attention when we were… casting shadows, shall we say? But it’s a little overwhelming, with her wanting me to take over the practice.”

      “更不用说创造性不道德,”苏西说。

      “你确实有一种话语。这是我的Zee,“曾说。

      “So…” said Susie. She was sipping Skud’s lemonade.

      “Mmm?” said Zun.

      “You’ll remember my other mother’s wine,” said Susie.

      “一些酒更快的东西,”朱德说,肚子上。

      “Indeed. I’d probably still be whimpering just far enough from Jim to…” said Susie.

      “So… can you peoples still drink the stuff?” said Skud.

      “That was the question I was coming around too, yeah,” said Susie.

      “Hm… Wonder if we could do something else with Lia’s yeastie beasties. Like making bread maybe? Does the whatever they make survive being baked?” said Zun.

      “你甚至如何决定是否有什么安全?”苏西说。

      “This is a job for… Epidemiology!” Zun said. “Like it’s a superpower or whatever.”

      “But no help for us, here in our little family,” said Susie. “And I do small number statistics for a living.”

      “No,” said Zun. “No, it’s not. So we try to behave ourselves. I realize that’s hard.”

      “我们中的一些人比其他人更难,”韦伯说。

      苏西拿了韦伯的手。

      “Wheeeee!” said Skud. Everyone was looking at them. “I’m the rocket person, remember? Breaking all the rules, all the time.”

      “I guess somebody’s gotta do it,” said Susie. Her lip wobbled when she turned her head to look at Zie.

      “是的,”Zie说,带着她的另一只手。

      I stood off to the side, slightly behind the bleachers as I waited for practice to end. I needed to talk to Dean about Tamera’s visit.

      I didn’t know if that was Sarah’s end game or if she was going to do something else to cause issues. She wasn’t just trying to cause problems between Dean and I. Sending Child Protective Services in my direction on a wild goose chase seemed to create a more vicious picture of her motives than I thought possible.

      自从我认识她以来,Sarah都是为了控制。她用铁拳统治了球队的父母小组,但这已经超出了这一点。

      我简要考虑过她试图通过与孩子的关系造成坦率的印象。当然,弗兰克最初是一个屁股,但一旦我们的分离伤害减少,他就会下降。

      When practice finally finished, I motioned Dean over to the side of the field away from the parents. I didn’t want anyone to eavesdrop on our conversation. I felt like I was a ventriloquist without the doll as I told Dean about Tamera’s visit without moving my lips. I was crying by the time I finished my explanation.

      “But, you said Tamera would make sure they filed this as an unfounded claim.”

      “Yes.” I wiped at my eyes. “I’m so scared though. Look at the shadow she’s thrown over me. This is on record if Frank ever sued me for more custody.”

      “Well, here’s a bright spot.” he took my face in his hands and wiped my tears gently with his thumb. “They banned Sarah from attending team practices. If she comes to games, she has to stay on the bleachers with the other parents. If she doesn’t, I am required to make an official complaint about her recent behaviour toward me.”

      “什么?为什么?”

      “I can’t go into the specifics, it’s not my story to tell.” he said. “Suffice it to say, Sarah has lost her credibility, and it’s on official school record.”

      “That’s good I guess. I just don’t feel safe anymore.” I looked up at him. “She came after my kids. What kind of person does that?”

      “A very lonely, bitter person.” He wrapped his arms around me. “I suspect Sarah is at the beginning of a huge reality check.”

      Ethan flipped through the pictures a second time. Something didn’t feel right. He stopped on one of…..

      “我认为这张照片中的时间戳不对,”他大声说道。“看看阴影......那不是早上的地方。”

      他经历了一遍,这一次看ll the timestamps. It could just be that they hadn’t set the date and time, but looking at the other pictures taken on the same day, those seemed right. It was only these two that were inconsistent. That was deliberate. Only question is, why?
