100 word challenge – this week’s prompt is … so what time did you say it was?…


She was tired after a busy Monday. She went to bed around her usual time, an hour before midnight.

Suddenly she was wide awake. She was too hot under the covers. She didn’t want to look at the clock, she just wanted to go back to sleep.

She tossed and turned, trying not to disturb her husband. She waited, laid still, eyes closed, attempting to calm her mind. It felt as though she’d been awake for hours.

Her husband rolled over. “So what time did you say it was?”

Reluctantly she looked at the clock. It was 1.22 am.
