Saturday Centus – Wk#177 – Prompt: “Salvation” without using the word – 100 words – “Alvan”

10 Sep

Looking at her newborn, Mrs. Otis saw greatness in her son. Showing her faith in him, she named him Alvan.

Alvan was the type of child many might overlook. His quiet nature could make him invisible when with others yet history is full of people of little significance until circumstances thrust them into the public eye… so it was for Alvan.

The Great Plague came upon the people. None were spared the effects, excepting Alvan. He had a natural immunity. It was this that brought about the cure.

The world rejoiced. Alvan Otis had lived up to his naming anagram.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I was looking for something different and thought of using “salvation” as an anagram. 🙂

    Wow. How did you do this?

    This was the coolest thing.

    This is one of the most original things I’ve ever read.

    Wow.

    Thanks for the comment.

    It was just one of those ideas can can sometimes come to mind. We couldn’t use “salvation” so I started with the idea of an anagram.
