Saturday Centus With Jenny Matlock

A few days late! But have manged to put together and get this challenge put together. It is getting hard to keep up. I thank each and all of you for your continued support as my schedule hasn't allowed me much time. I appreciate each and all of you so much and look forward when I can catch up once again; when my work scheduling eases up. Have an awesome week!

WORD COUNT - 100 WORDS PLUS THE TEN WORDS OF THE PROMPT. Total word count not to exceed 110 words.
THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: "The number you have reached is no longer in service"

As I picked up the phone to call home
My heart was pounding
Racing with the last words spoken
Had I only said what was on my heart
Not what was out of angry pain and rage
Then I wouldn't be lost to my family
It had been ten years since we last spoke
As I raced out of the house
As the door slammed behind me
I swore I would never look back or call
But life has changed
I need to talk with them
I need them to know about the baby
She has so little time
The automated recording rang across the the line
"The number you have reached is no longer in service"


Have you ever said something or left with unfinished business that you wish you could take back and change?

Good job with a sad but true message.

Sad and powerful words!

This felt so believable. My eyes are teary...what a horrid circumstance. And one I hope is not based on fact!

Thank you for sharing this. It was brilliant.
