The Unknown


Jenny Matlock

I'm finally getting back to linking up with Jenny Matlocks Saturday Centus.  She gives us a prompt,  of which I put in blue, and tells us how many words we can use.  This week we get 100, plus the 8 in the prompt.    Also this week, Nonna, one of the ever faithful Centus people supplied the prompt, since Jenny thinks she has to move and stuff.  

THE UNKNOWN

Caitlin and Seth had just walked through the old cemetery.  “We need to find out about some of these unknown grave markers”, Caitlin said.  “Whatever you say”, Seth grumbled, as they walked to the Caretakers office.

We know where all the bodies are buried”, Caitlin told him, “but is there any way we can find out who they might be”?

The Caretaker grunted as he pulled out the old, dusty ledgers.

They both got busy looking through the ledgers when Seth heard Caitlin take in a sharp breath.  With a pale face she looked at Seth and said, “you will never guess who I just found”.......

What a great week for Nonna to come up with that prompt.  I took this photo at an old cemetery just a couple of weeks ago.

  1. That is an amazing photo of a cemetery, quite old I'm thinking? It's one that would be so cool to visit...alive and well, and to find out who was it????

  14. Very cool picture and it goes PERFECT with your writing. I haven't done a writing prompt in forever. I'm sure it would be an epic fail if I tried. I've had a kid. My brain is different now.

    I hope you're having a great weekend!
