Trifecta

For this weekend's challenge, write a letter of apology in exactly 33 words. Addresses, salutations, closings, etc., do not count in the 33 words. 



Dear Beth,

I’m sorry I played with Daddy’s softball bat when I know I’m not allowed to. I’m also sorry I hit you in the head. I was aiming for your stomach, but you ducked.

Your sister,
Tess

  2. Too funny. Sibling rivalries are the best!

    Love this! I can see the whole thing play out in my mind. I was both Tess and Beth growing up. :-)

    HI, here from Trifecta..
    and do you know my sister??? This was good, I wondered if you'd make it spookier, like it killed her, but I'm glad it was just that...an open apology.

    :)

  8. Out of the mouths/pens of innocent babes. At least she's honest! Thanks for the chuckle (only because I know this is fiction, or so I hope?!)

  10. Ha! Perfect. I had sisters and I may have written something like this once. Fortunately, we all survived childhood. Nice job with this weekend's prompt!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
