Saturday Centus – Wk#181 – Prompt: “Cowardice” without using the word – 100 words – “Melek”

08 Oct

From childhood, Melek had been afraid. The sight of a bird, the sound of the wind, angry words all brought her dread.

As a young woman, Melek rarely ventured outside. Her timidity worried her parents but fate was to play a hand.

War, a human tragedy, came to her home. Many, including her parents, were lost. Melek hid in terror until she heard the voice of a crying child.

Thoughts of fear disappeared as she searched the rubble. She found one then others. When peace came, Melek had gathered sixteen children and a reputation for bravery in protecting her family.

    Thanks for the comment.

    We often don’t know how we’ll react in more desperate situations, for the fictional Melek, tragedy led to courage.
