The good wife


Just came across a very interesting creative writing initiative by Auset. She gives a prompt for each day, and you have 10 minutes to write about it. And write anything 🙂

So, Writing Prompt #1: Opening Line

Her mother always said she would make a good wife.

My take – as always, a 55-er, as that is the easiest way out 😉

———

‘Her mother always said she would make a good wife.
She was pretty, docile and had no bad habits. Atleast, no boys!
Years passed. Prince Charming hadn’t arrived.
Finally. ‘Mum, I’m getting married. I love Sam’
’Sam who?’ Mum asked excitedly.
‘Samantha’
‘What? You can’t!!’
‘But Mum, you always said I’d make a good wife!!!’’
