Story A Day May, Day 15’s prompt is from is from StoryADay creator Julie Duffy.
This story is the fifteenth in a series of explorations for my upcoming novel, Still Nameless (Kifo Island #8), which I will be drafting in July.
Take a story you’ve written before and write it again from a different point of view.
Exploding Words…. From Ophelia’s POV.
“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.
