This morning's 100 words, this time a vignette:
She knew it would only be a matter of time before the lies caught up with her--before everyone began to see past her innocent facade and uncover the real Sarah, that vindictive, selfish woman who'd lived her life trying to attain an ideal: the ideal daughter, wife, mother, friend. But she couldn't be any of those things; she wasn't good enough. She wasn't perfect. And when she made yet another mistake and saw the anger in his eyes, fear set in. He would no longer love her if he knew the truth. And so she lied. Again.


  1. how sad. she must not realize that the truth always catches up w/you eventually...poor thing!
    good piece =)

  2. Darn it. 100 words is never enough, although I do comprehend (on some level) that these shorts are about developing the writer, not satiating the reader. ;)

  3. Thanks, Tara and Deb!

    Deb, thanks for the encouragement that maybe I should expand some of these shorts into longer pieces...
