hundred word wednesday – “house”

In Hundred Word Wednesdays on July 6, 2011 at 10:53 am

Hello again dear readers. It is, obviously, Wednesday. Another hundred words for you to devour. Please, read, and enjoy.

It was the only house standing in a neighborhood of foreclosures. Nice houses, too – this area had been rich. But every family was forced to foreclose at the same time, leaving the area deserted for miles around.

The high schoolers had found the nicest of the bunch, and did better work restoring that house than they’d ever done at school. Then they made the calls.

It was the biggest party anyone had ever been to, ever. Cops and parents had no idea. 400 kids died of alcohol poisoning that night, but the survivors agreed it was totally worth it.
