Sacha’s back with another of her #Writespiration prompts!

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

And the prompt this week…

Your story from the point of view of Death personified.

Skull, Grim Reaper, Wallpaper

It ain’t easy, you know, being the bearer of bad news.
And that’s ALL my job is about.
First off, I can’t stand the heat!
Not only do I live near a furnace, but I melt in these robes!
Secondly, I’m a softy at heart.
Thank God they don’t see my tears…

    Well done — I’ve written about working for the grim reaper, but not from his perspective. I can see why he would complain. After all, most folks don’t want him around.

    hehehe well done Ritu. And very apt considering the heat much of the US and UK has been experiencing recently. I suspect quite a few are melting under their robes right now 😉

    What a coincidence. I have been thinking about this topic for last few days because of the incidents in London, Portugal, San Francisco, Paris etc.
    Time to get back to the writing board.
