Liberty's 100 Word Challenge Entry (Week 9)

“Put your hand in the box, go on,” she said. Her hair glistened as my torch light hit; her sapphire eyes turned purple with exasperation.

My hand hesitated while my heart joined the circus, leaping and plummeting about.

“Don’t trust her,” yelled a voice in my head.

I took a deep breath, and plunged my hand in.

It scuttled around and found a scrap of paper. I pulled it out and read it:
Bump off my husband or else.

“Why me?“

"Because I want you to marry me,” she replied.

Liberty, this is an incredible piece of writing for the 100WC. You've used some incredible vocabulary, used speech marks well throughout, but most importantly have captured my imagination. I was hooked in right from the start! Well done!

Don't forget to use the words in the prompt in your writing.
