“What’s the Catch?” #StoryADay May; Day Twenty-Eight

Story A Day May 28’s prompt is from StoryADay creator Julie Duffy.

The Prompt:

  • Write a story with a Cinderella structure.

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.

Prompt Words from my local NaNoWriMo group list:

  • Therapy

  • future

  • trap

  • authority

  • impartial

  • theory

  • vanish

  • subdued

  • married

  • Taboo

  • Stakeout

  • Withdrawl

  • Entropy

  • Vacuum

  • Antidote

  • Residue

“What’s the Catch?”

“What about the stakeout?”

“It was a good theory…”

“Damn! It’s a damned vacuum, and I’m trapped! My whole future is on NX-01. Now it could all vanish. Sorry.”

“Go ahead. Get mad, Trip. It’s good therapy; you’re too subdued lately.”

“There’s no antidote for this entropy, Cap’n.”

“Lieutenant Tucker.”


“I request the Captain’s withdrawal.”


“Speaking openly on this matter is taboo.”

“See you later, Trip.”


“I have the authority to clear you.”

“What’s the catch?”

There was a menacing residue in Soval’s answer.

“I require the complete truth regarding your encounter with this young woman.”

Where is this conversation happening?

Who was on the stakeout, and why?

Will Trip tell what he knows about his Vulcan Surprise Package?

Any guesses?

Come back tomorrow for another 100 word installment, or visit the series link!


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
