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.”

Thanks for the comment.
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. 🙂

Gotta love this one!

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

OH what the bills can do! There are so many these days…without much extra!

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

This cracked me up!
I wanted a little twist in this short story. 🙂

25 words is a good test. 🙂

Meantime, go hunt for the candels!! Good take on the prompt!!!
CANDLES! I meant CANDLES!!!!
I have lost count of the number of times I have mistyped words. I keep candles here just in case. 🙂

Perfect take on the prompt!

I was bringing the blackness into an all too common life event. 🙂

oh so funny!
November 6, 2011 at 21:33
I had been thinking of ways to make light of the dark. 🙂

Good job! Made me laugh!
November 6, 2011 at 21:34
When the idea came to me, I smiled. I had started out looking for a non-serious idea. 🙂

LOL! Yep, sounds like a priority.
November 6, 2011 at 21:35
Paying on time may have helped but bills can be trying at times. 🙂

Wow this one is true it sounds like my head in the middle of the night. Great one. B

With an electricity bill due soon, it’s almost a personal story. 🙂
