Trifecta Challenge – Week 7: It Can’t Be…

This weekend’s challenge from Trifecta:

Give us a story or snippet of a story which includes, in exactly 33 words, a justified exclamation point.  Make us believe that your exclamation point simply needs to be in your story.  The writer with the most believable exclamation wins.

My entry:

A beautiful night, it should have been perfect.

Overcome by darkness, shadowed by fear I tried in vain to fight him.

Today, I got the call from my doctor.

NO!  It can’t be.

  1. Thanks for linking up to Trifecta this weekend. What a lovely, spooky response you’ve given us. My mind is conjuring up the various possibilities of what that doctor had to say. Interesting turn. Hope to see you back on Monday.


  2. Pregnant, VD, HIV, many possibilities. Loss of girlhood. Was this a rough lover, or molester? Good story, start of a novel perhaps? Evelyn
