"Cabbage Borscht" a five minute freewrite

in freewritehouse •  25 days ago

This is the freewrite challenge. I am using @mariannewest’s #freewrite prompt to write this piece (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-490-5-minute-freewrite-friday-prompt-cabbage-borscht)

Today’s prompt is:

cabbage borscht

The hotel was old, run down. If she had had a choice she probably would have driven right on by and taken her chances with the next town. But she had no idea where the next town was. The snow was falling thick and fast, and Heather didn't like driving in the snow in the night.

And her bloody phone gps was taking the piss out of her. An hour ago she had been instructed to take a sharp left off a bridge onto a motorway below. Luckily, she didn't like to take orders from anyone, let alone a phone.

"I'll take your best room," she said, smiling at the crumpled lady behind the desk.

"We only have one room left," the woman grunted. "It isn't our best," she shrugged. "But I guess it isn't the worst, either."

Heather smiled. "I'm sure it will be fine. Can I eat in your restaurant?"

"No restaurant. Eat in bar. Cabbage borscht."

Cabbage borscht. Did the whole country live on this stuff?

Heather smiled again. "That will be just fine."

As usual I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):
