Autumn makes her announcement (100 Word Challenge Week #16)

This is  the second week of my contribution to the 100 Word Challenge.    Back to 100 words,  the prompt is a photograph of a papier mache hand and burger  and the challenge is to write something from a vegetarian point of view.   Click on the photo for more information.

After composing herself, Autumn decided to return to the meeting and stand her ground.

As she opened the door, they watched in silence, her willowy figure framed in the doorway.   Nervously she smoothed her hands down the front of her signature russet and camel MaxMara outfit.    Autumn took a deep breath and stepped into the room.

With all the dignity she could muster, she took her place at the table again.  Autumn then made her announcement: “Grandpa bequeathed the burger bar to me,  from now on it will only sell vegetarian food”.

The family took a sharp intake of breath.

  11. I think it is fun to link these challenges to previous ones- I have a character, Kit who appears every now and again where appropriate.
    Your character is portrayed well and the sense of tension is evident. Super post.

  14. I love the way you continued from last week. I got a great picture of Autumn’s looks from last week, and now a great insight into her personality this week. And I can really picture the horror on her family’s faces following this announcement.
