100 words for grown ups





 Here's mine: 


“It’s no good, I can’t go through with it. “
“Yes you can, love, this time it’ll be different, it will work out.”
“But I’m so scared, what if it doesn’t? What if it turns out like before? I just can’t go through that all again.”
“No one knows what the future holds darling, but he’s not the same. He’s one of the good guys- he adores you, you light up when you’re together; I’ve never known you so happy. “
“Really?”
“Of course. Believe me, this is the right thing to do. Come on, it’s time.”




I know that lady...

    Great piece. Very effective use of dialogue. The comments of reassurance are just what one can imagine were needed. A 'supportive'/positive piece, good job!
