The End

Today's post is my entry into this week's 100 Word Challengehosted by Velvet Verbosity. The 100 Word Challenge is an exercise in which we write exactly 100 words in response to the weekly prompt word. Click the link to read the other entries–good stuff over there! 

This week's prompt was "honor" and the post is based on an actual conversation. Names changed to protect the guilty.

“Can't you see there's no honor in how you're living? No integrity?” I asked, incredulously.

“I have honor. I have integrity. I can't help it if you aren't evolved enough to understand. I don't apologize for that, I don't own that.” she said. “Everyone doesn't get it. That's why I don't go around telling people.”

“I'm not just people, Jane. We've been friends for ten years; you're like a sister to me. Your whole life is a lie. How could you live like this and not tell me?”

“Because I knew you would judge me.”


  1. I think I had that conversation once.

  2. tough convo for anyone to have. :(
    And, it always amazes me how quickly we are told we are judging someone. It's happened to me so I tend to back quietly away from such conversations anymore. Ouch!

    good catch, Ms. Marsha

  3. Is it the sign of an awesome 100-word piece that I am DYING to know more?

  4. yes, this is one 100-words I would want to know more about.

  5. Well, maybe someday I will be able to write one with a beginning, middle and end, but for now they are just excerpts I guess.
