Freewrite #02 – [In response to Velvet Verbosity’s 100 Word Challenge for this week. Found through knot2share, a great person to read. The word for this week is GAME].

On the yellow coir sofa, sat a slouching weathered couple, waiting to hear our three voices. Their room was a faded green decorated with thick cobwebs.

First, we sat silently listening to sounds and guessing the animals correctly. Grandma had a grumpy parrot in her stomach. Grandpa hated farming in his tummy. But, I often heard a gecko dancing in his throat.

Next, we faced challenges while tugging the rancid cobwebs with our palms. Once, I had to stand upside down while trying to battle one under the wardrobe.

Then we left for the night.

But, the cobwebs always returned.
