Mrs Jones, we must talk about Sarah. Her recent art project.

Oh, it was brilliant! She got a gold star! We are so proud.

The talent is obvious. Colour, logic, planning. Santa pencil dropped mid‑scene caps off the malevolence.


The theme of this work, Mrs Jones. She has created carnage as art. A child as roadkill. Dead, or dying. Either a dog is finishing her off, or a service vehicle is scraping up her remains. I’m not certain ….

She wants to be an Ambo. She likes to practice scenarios. I’ve never thought …

Oh. Right then. [98 words]

Thank you Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for continuing to set this 100 word or less challenge. It is certainly a commitment appreciated by many. Other 100 word stories can be read here.

  1. Looks like the teacher read a bit too much into it!
    Google came through with “Ambo” – I’ve heard the term (probably on “Neighbours”!) but thought it meant “ambulance”. “Paramedic” is our term over here 🙂

  2. Ah, Trish, where one of my characters seems to have missed the boat, yours seems to go on (possibly) over-interpretative journeys … 😉 Poor kiddo. (I mean, I hope the kid isn’t REALLY harboring murder fantasies … yikes!)
