Saturday Centus #2 I double dog dare you!

Jenny Matlock

This post is linked to Saturday Centus week 2.  A 100 word story based on a prompt. The prompt is in bold below.


“I dare you, I double dog dare you!” the words kept coming back to Sara as she nervously walked into the airport. Could she do it?  Sara thought of the cancer that was aggressively eating away at her life. She knew that it was now or never. She thought of her husband and daughters, how would they remember her? She wanted to leave her daughters a legacy of courage. One of a woman that was strong, brave adventurous and full of life.  She had no choice but to take the dare. She boarded the plane and said a quick prayer. The small Cessna 172 picked up speed as it roared down the runway, Sara at the controls, the flight instructor beside her.

  10. Oh, you made me shiver. I have goosebumps! And I love this story. Christy, this was amazing.

    And I must ask, though. Are you OK?

    OK, I read it again and it did the same thing.
