If you need prompts, check out the site

Word: Penny

She was merely a few pennies away from freedom, from life, and from everything. There was a cold, dark feeling surfacing from the bottom of the ocean in her heart and she gulped, tears springing to her eyes. I was so close, she thought.

Her friend glanced apologetically at her. "Sorry, Tammy. Guess I'll have to go to the mountains by myself, huh?" She smiled a sort of half smile and boarded the train.

In the cold, harsh night, Tammy watched the train disappear out of sight.

A/N: I'm not even sure where this was going...


  1. See, I think this is a good start for a story or something, but why can't her friend just loan her some change? It's confusing.

  2. Because her friend was stingy?

    Eh, I've got no idea why. The prompt was "penny" and I was trying to keep it around that theme... although it didn't really work. I'll probably revise this sometime to make more sense.
