I skipped the mega this week. I was having a heck of a time making anything legible out of the word combinations. I did manage to put together the mini and the ten word, both with a bit of sinister undertones. That's not typically my writing style, but hey isn't that part of what these exercises are for? - experiment and have fun right? Well good, bad or ugly, here are my offerings for this week.
Ten Word Challenge: exponentially, Nightshade, braces, impossibility, the beginning of time, barracuda, playful banter, delve, automatic, bewildered
And for the Mini Challenge: fragment, hemoglobin, insipid, flourish, juxtapose
The Ten Word
The leader of the not so infamous Nightshade gang, Darth Mater, found it a near impossibility for people to take him serious when his teeth were clad in those shinny braces. Ever since the beginning of time, or at least the begging of his time, he'd wanted to be revered with fear, but was finding it exceptionally difficult to accomplish when every one's automatic reaction to seeing his braces-puffed lips was, "He looks like a barracuda!"
Still he delved deeper and deeper into the dark arts, somewhat bewildered that they thought their not so playful banter would go unchecked. He had already formulated his plan, and when they least expected it, they would all pay for their sneers and jabs.
Bryant's words were spilling out in fragments. Inside his head he knew exactly what he wanted to say, but the state of his condition had taken its toll, making speech nearly impossible. The microbes in his hemoglobin were flourishing and multiplying at an alarming rate. He looked up at Roger with pleading in his eyes as he tried to formulate the words that would save his life. Try as he might though, they just could not leave his lips. His colleague looked down at him and said with an insipid tone, "Quite the juxtaposition, eh Bryant? The spores that you developed are now surging through you own veins."
The last sentence confirmed his suspicions. He knew it was only a matter of time now before he would die a slow and agonizing death, and his lab partner who'd warned him of the terrible consequences of developing such a disease was now the one exacting his revenge.
