Stephanie over at ‘BeKindRewrite‘ is once again hosting ‘Voice Week’ – “Voice Week is an experimental writing challenge to help us stretch our versatility in voice and tone. Each Voice Week participant writes five versions of the same story – from five different points of view. Then, October 1 through 5, we post, compare, sharpen, and grow.”
Here is my 100 word story for Day 5 and my fifth voice.
The Hospital Bed
Look at them all, they can’t wait. I’m sorry to have to say this Jimmy but there’s a lot of people looking forward to your death. It’s a shame it had to be this way my love. I hadn’t planned for this to happen, well, not yet anyway. If only you hadn’t gone on about wanting a divorce. I’ve managed to convince the police it was an accident. That Chief Inspector has been such a sweetie. Well Jimmy, time to go, just one more act to play out, then the distraught wife becomes the rich, grieving widow.
“OK Doctor, you can do it now.”
