Saturday Centus: Isadora and Xenter Say Goodbyes

For today "Saying goodbye was harder than she thought..." is our Saturday Centus prompt word group.

Here is my story in 107 words as required (could have been less):

It seemed the week had barely started and now she was to leave. Saying goodbye was harder than she thought...

Isadora's visit with Xentor was a nice respite. But time had gone so fast. If only she could hide away in one of his closets until her ordeal was over.

First, clean her house before the sheriff took it away. Five payments behind and empty cupboards faced her.

On the way to the car, Xentor slipped her a small heavy envelope.

Isadora didn't open it until she was on her way. Voila! Cousin Xentor had saved her day! Inside the envelope were 200 bright fifty dollar bills.

°It is Saturday Centus day. Jenny in her blog, my tangent... , has challenged us with writing a 106 word story using these seven words, in order, "Saying goodbye was harder than she thought...".
°That is 100 of our words plus the seven she has required. She did allow less, but I made it to an even 107.

°Jenny also had a picture of a child waving goodbye that we could use or we were allowed to use our own. I opted to use this one of my friend, Juan and his friends. The Ford Model T belongs to Juan. It trolls along at a steady 30 mph on the highways.
°You can find more writers signed up at Jenny's blog, my tangent.... You can also go there to find instructions for writing your own post.

One Single Impression: Muse


As I mused my muse
she done came and went
don't know where she went
I just know she's gone

More poems using Muse as prompt word can be found at One Single Impression.
Prompt word (Muse) was suggested by Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason.

Note: The Muses are the goddesses who inspire the creation of literature, science and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture, that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths. (Wikipedia article, Muse)
