The Soldier

There was nothing for her here. Past the template-punched houses she trudged, the old soldier staring through the same grey pavement. She had taken the bullet, and somehow the world was more silent now. A gust of wind blew and corrected her posture like a loyal friend. She stopped and leaned into the air, eyes softly shut. The air caressed and cradled her body as it passed her by. She smiled. It had whispered its secret to her. Arms straight at her sides, she caught the air and rose into it: the baby on Mother's shoulder, high above it all.

This is in reply to Scott's drabble meme blog entry. I'm not sure I completely understand the rules but the ones I've read so far have been good reads so I thought I'd have a go, too.

Nice job Andy :) I really like this idea!

I've been talking with James a lot lately about creativity and the like, and even posted a story I wrote some time back (start of) as my last post. ( if you fancied checking it out :D

100 words is quite the challenge, spot on anyways. I'm gonna give it a go, one of the more appealing meme's I've fancied attempting :)

Definitely one of the cooler and more meaningful memes out there. I really like your one, can't believe it's only 100 words :)
