Saturday Centus Week 78 – Plain black picture prompt / using 25 words – “Imagined”

29 Oct

 

The blackness creeps into my soul. My mind craves stimulation. Images form in my troubled mind, terrors imagined.
 
“Tomorrow I must pay the electricity bill.”

      25 words was quite a task when set to a prompt and needing to have meaning. 🙂

    Yikes that must be one huge bill if it brings you terror, good one.

      I tend to find the thought of an electricity bill as a frightening experience even when I have green options in mine. 🙂

      The 25 words were short and tongue-in-cheek. 🙂

      It seems the only ones who like bills are the issuers. 🙂

      I have lost count of the number of times I have mistyped words. I keep candles here just in case. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      When the idea came to me, I smiled. I had started out looking for a non-serious idea. 🙂

      Paying on time may have helped but bills can be trying at times. 🙂
