Mission Gone Wrong: The Weekend Freewrite - 10/13/2018

in freewrite •  last year  (edited)

"Don't you know that violence is an expression of an unmet need?" he said with a smile. She wanted to punch him in the face.

Instead, Crystal balled up her first and hit the pack a couple of times. She stopped when her breathing became rapid.

"You feel better?" he asked.

"A little. What unmet need do you think I am harboring." Her voice softened.

"You are mad at your father for leaving you and your mother, at least from what I have gathered."

"He was a lazy fuck and a drunk. My mother left him." Crystal was getting red in the face again.

"Has she told you the whole story?"

She tugged at her straps. What does he mean the whole story? Of course, she has told me the whole story. My mother would never lie to me about such a thing.

Crystal thought about the day he and her mother fought, the last time she saw him. My father was a college drop-out who worked graveyard shifts on the docks. Since there was nothing better for him to do, so he claimed, he would drink. When he got home, he'd drink, fuck, and go to bed. All his money went to drinking while mother worked to put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads. What would she have to hide?

Yes, I can see that. I have to start correcting her behavior. Chuck watched her face contort in all sorts of directions.

Chuck finished strapping himself with the parachute harnesses. After that, he moved over to Crystal, checking that all the buckles were fastened and belts were tight.

Crystal anxiously stands, waiting for some sarcastic comment to come out of his mouth. The letters she would write to herself flooded her memories. What was mom hiding? Was she hiding anything about my father?

Chuck motioned with his hand it was time to jump. The back of the plane opened and they were out before the door had fully opened.

They landed on the intended building, their landing was quiet. They unraveled themselves from their packs and head for the door that led into the compound.

Rain and lightning put an end to this idea when they touched the door. It came seemly out of nowhere and all the sudden. Shocked backward after touching the doorknob, Chuck hit Crystal's body. They skidded across the ground. Sirens sounded.

Out of the door came fifty men, encircling them. They had to fight or risk being a captive, which would lead to their death.

Chuck was happy she was still angry from their talk in the plane. They both grabbed their sidearms and opened fire, taking out six each with headshots.

Chuck grabbed his blade and began hacking at the men who came at him.

A man grabbed Crystal with both arms while another hit her in the stomach repeatedly. She went down as the air left her lungs.

Chuck got clocked in the side of the head by a baseball bat. The last thing he felt was the prick of a needle in his neck. The lights went out after that.

  • Grammarly - I use this app all the time to catch my mistakes. If I didn't have a spell checker, you would be lost in my world. haha!

Ongoing Contests

  • twenty-four hour short story - You gotta be quick to get this one posted in time. He posts the contest on Sunday (usually) and ends it about 48 hours later. This contest has a 2000 word limit.

  • Finish the Story Contest - The contest begins on Wednesday (usually) and end 5 days later. This contest will test your write skills with something a little different each week. Pletty of time to write something around the 500 word mark.

  • Random Games - Yes, random. She will put this contest out on Thursdays (usually) and end it after post pay out (usually). This is challenging because you don't know what you are going to get.

  • Steem Monsters Common Card Fantasy Story Contest! - Coming out roughly every week. If you enjoy card games like Magic, Yugio, and others like it, you might like this game. Write a fictional tale about the card they present in the contest and your entry just might be the one they choose to showcase.

  • Tell A Story To Me, And Win 5 SBD! Writing Contest - Kind of random when it comes out but don't worry. You will have two weeks to complete your work of art from the given prompt. Have fun!

  • Haiku - These are coming out every couple days or so. If you stuggle with rhymes, no worries. Haikus don't have to rhyme. All you need to make a haiku is five syllable on the first, seven syllables in the second line, and again back to five syllable for the last line. So easy it makes me think I'm being super product. LOL

  • 50-word Challenge - This is an interesting challenge and very challenging to say the least. You only get fifty words to tell a story or a vignettes. Here is a great post that will explain the difference between the two concepts. Good luck, Brave Story Writer!
