Prompt …exhausted and breathing hard, she simply raised her fists…

Everyone began the race. Shery was coming in third with the top runners. She had enough energy to get closer to Kim in second. Shery caught up to Kim who then tripped her over with her foot. Shery went back into third place. Now she was angry so she decided to sprint past Kim. Kim knew she could not catch Shery so she tried to stay in third. The finish line was in sight. Shery had to beat one person, Sandy. Shery was sprinting fast. Exhausted and breathing hard, she simply raised her fists as she ran through the finish line before Sandy.

Hi Tyler
Wow! You have really used the prompt very well in this week’s 100 word challenge. Your description of the race had me feeling as if I was there and watching it all happen. You managed to create a sense of drama and excitement in your piece and I really didn’t know what was going to happen until the very end when you used the prompt so creatively to propel Shery to first place. The way you used ‘before Sandy’ was so clever as everything came right down to the end. Well done. Excellent writing for the 100 word challenge!
