Indelible for #StoryADay May; Day Fifteen


“What the hell are you doing?!”

Marilyn just stares at her for a few seconds, then goes back to her incoherent scribbling. She’s gripping the marker so hard, it’s tearing the fine pages.

The book was a gift from Mom. But she can’t say that to her half-sister, not when Marilyn’s mother is dead. Not that Marilyn would be likely to understand, anyway – she has that look of being high, and there’s a foul stink in the air; something acrid burning. She’s already sribbled all over herself, her dolls, the sheets, and the wall. She’s naked, the trackmarks hidden by the ink.

And she’s destroying Ophelia’s home – and her life – in indelible ways.

How will Ophelia react?
Can she erase Marilyn’s destruction?

Is there any hope for Marilyn?

Any guesses?

Come back tomorrow for another installment, and we can explore this new story seed together!


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!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
