This is my first attempt at the 100 words challenge. My goodness it really makes you think! This week the challenge was to use one of these three phrases from the King James Bible in your 100 words:

You sneak in through windows at 3am, mascara smudged, heels scuffed.
You glare at me when I ask you questions stomping off in a huff, slamming doors, cracking stuff.
I worry where you’ve been but more so where you’re headed. There’s so much I want to explain if you let me.
I can’t tell him what you’re really like, you’re the apple of his eye. The pain will leave him wounded, I can’t watch a grown man cry.
