“Your Name’s Paula?”: #StaD May; Day Eleven

  • Our Story A Day May 11 prompt is from Bea a bilingual writer and freelancer currently living near Venice, in Italy. She blogs and helps writers with their writing and creativity at The Busy Muse

The Prompt:

  • Your company sends you to meet a costumer at their house. It’s a standard, nice neighborhood.
  • You ring and ring but nobody answers. The door is ajar, and you enter, calling aloud.
  • All is in order in the living room apart from an overturned potted plant on the expensive-looking rug…

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

Word List:

Prompt Word Donor; Kitndavj

  • Spin

  • Shutters

  • Doormat

  • Skeleton key

  • Accountant

  • Romanov

  • Blindfold

  • Carpet

And now I offer you…

“Your Name’s Paula?”

“In this game, you’re an accountant. Your company sends you to the Romanov house. Nice neighborhood. There’s a skeleton key under the doormat, but the door’s cracked open. You go inside and call. No answer – but there’s a potted plant tipped over on a hand-knotted carpet -”

“Hey, who’s this guy?”

“The shutters slam. You spin around. Someone blindfolds you.”


“Your name’s ‘Paula’?”


“Well, it happened. And it’s a flesh-eating cannibal. What’s next?”

“I am quite prepared to defend myself.”

“What is your name?”

“Paula, you listening?”


She was – but only to the human male in her mind.
Will T’Pol explain herself to either man?

Will Trip ever learn her name?

Why does she deem it ‘unlikely’ that she’d be captured?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
