Wednesday's Words on a Friday

The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.

The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
This month the words/prompts are supplied by Cindi and can be found here.

This week's words/prompts are:

"The year is 2030. The first astronauts have landed on Mars. In a cave they find a single human skeleton and fifteen words written on a wall. What are the words?"

Here are my words:

You were right Mum. Rocket fuel in the speedboat was a bad idea. Sorry, Ben.

and another option:

All alone here. Ship beyond repair. No communication with Earth. Still looking for water.  Week 8.

  3. I cracked up over your first one, River.

    It appears the days didn't go far into the alphabet in your second!

    Take care. :)

    1. Lee; I like the first one myself :)
      The second is sadder, people don't last long without water and Mars doesn't have any that's easily found.

  6. Funny how they both have the same tragic ending, yet the first one doesn't seem sad!

    1. Val; there's something I hadn't realised. Perhaps because the first one also made you laugh.

  7. The first was really funny and the second made me feel lonely for that poor guy.

    1. Margaret D; it is funny imagining a speedboat rocketing through space.

  10. The first option is amusing. The second had me wondering if the person died after 8 days on mars - it seems a short time to me.

    Have a lovely day.

    1. lissa; I agree it is a very short time and I should have made it longer. I'll change it later.
