100 & 4 Word Excerpt:

She heard screams all around her in the night.  Her father peered out the window.  Her mother’s hands grasped her shoulders, hurriedly pushing into the closet behind the racks of clothing.

Slowly, Dina watched as the sleeve fell away from her mother’s arm.

She saw the mark.

Her father shouted a warning, but Dina barely heard it.  She was pushed further back into the closet

Nw is nasis was oelo dlalo wot we,” her mother whispered just before she slammed the door shut.


The dream always ended there.  The screams always echoed in her mind, even though she always woke up before that moment.
