The woman laid out on a table, awaiting her fate.
She acted calm and nervous, she didn’t understand why she wanted to torture herself any more than she already has in the past.
She lied there, helpless with her hands and feet bound at the corners of the board.
She felt cold but watched everybody walk around her with their half smiles.
They had glasses of wine in their hands and they dressed in fancy clothes.
She was just part of the entertainment of the party.
She has one other brand placed on the side of right side.
It lets her know where she belongs.
She could feel the heat of the iron stake burning in the fireplace.
As her partner came closer blowing out the flames that covered the outline of a stripe.
She braced herself for the pain at her left side but it still didn’t help.
She took eight deep breaths and then passed out.
When she woke up, she was lying on her couch in her dressing room.
She never takes the pain well and always faints at the end.
When she stood on her feet, she looked at herself in the mirror and saw the red outline of the marking on her body.
It was still sore and tender to the touch.
At the table, she found $100 at her fingertips.
It wasn’t enough for the pain she endured or enough to pay all her climbing bills.
But it’s the price she has to pay to earn money.

Ketchup With Us: First Day

I found another writing challenge to do! Now I’m up to what, FIVE now? Wow! It’s all good and fun anyways! If they are fun and somewhat challenging, I’ll pretty much try them out. This one has a fun-loving title called “Ketchup With Us” and it’s by two fun ladies Mel and Michele. This writing challenge is hosted on the first and 15th of every month. Which is easy enough for anybody to keep up with, right? Anyways, since it’s the 21st I would say this is from last week so you need to write about your FIRST DAY on something. It’s perfect for this time of year, since everybody is going back to school. So all you have to do is write about your first day in 57 words or less.

The first day of Kindergarten was interesting; they had coloring pages on the table.
All of my classmates saw me pick up a crayon with my toes and I surprised them to their core.
A student said, “she’s drawing with her feet!”
They didn’t make fun of me because I was different.

They ended up turning into friends after that.
