100 Word Challenge: apple, empire, yellow, enormous, liberty


It’s Friday which means it’s another 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups over at Julia’s Place.

Today, we have to write a flash fiction piece using the following five words:  apple, empire, yellow, enormous and liberty.

Here’s my shot at it.  I hope you like it.  Say…I have an idea.  Why don’t you all pop over and leave your 100 words?  It’ll be a lot of fun and a great challenge.  See you there.

I tipped the Yellow Cab driver and stood on the pavement, staring up at the enormous glass building.  Apple Press, the global publishing empire my father built, waited for me on the sixty-first floor.  I didn’t want to go in there.  I knew nothing of the publishing world.  I was quite content running my Bed and Breakfast in Grafton, Vermont, and I took the liberty of telling my father so.  But Papa didn’t listen and he passed away a month later, leaving me his dream.  I had no choice. I steeled myself and walked inside.
