This weeks 100 word challenge for grown ups is:
For this week, I want you to concentrate on one particular style of writing – dialogue. As it will be a conversation and they can be long, you are going to be able to use up to 150 words!
The prompt is: …’Are you sure it should be that colour?’ ….
So the maximum number of words is 158.
So many options to write about, but somehow I found myself attempting to channel JK Rowling. Forgive me Potter fans.
“Are you sure you know what you’re doing?” Harry asked.
“Of course I do,” Hermione snapped, running her finger down the book. “I just hope the brumblevine is fresh enough,” she mumbled to herself.
“And what is it supposed to do again?” Ron asked.
“I told you, this potion should make Harry impervious to every curse.”
“Don’t you think if it was that simple they would have given it to Harry long ago?” Ron scoffed.
“I found it in a very rare book. Perhaps they just didn’t remember it.”
“Even Dumbledore?” Harry asked.
“Dumbledore has millions of things to think about.”
“Are you sure it should be that colour?” Ron asked, looking into the brownish-green sludge.
“Erm, I’m not sure. It says it should be puce. What colour is puce anyway?”
“I don’t know,” Ron said. “But she’s going to blow.”
The potion exploded turning their skin purple wherever it hit.
“My mistake,” Hermione whispered.
