Following on from Kirsty’s post last week talking about Expectation for England’s football team, this week in England there has been a lot of talk of Football’s coming home. Of course the team are coming home after the weekend in either third or four place not first or second.

As well as entering your story, I would like to know where you are based as my prompt is …..

I left the prompt FOUNDLINGS ON Saturday. I think it is a fascinating subject, but difficult to summaries in 6 words. However, lots of you have as usual come up trumps!

FOUNDLING

About the prompt

I’m thinking of Foundling as in baby abandoned shortly after birth but, you can interpret differently if you like.

I think, it is a rich topic for stories. I have been and will share more reblogs of post related to the subject foundlings. However, the problem is condensing such a complicated situation into 6 words, as I found. So good luck with this tricky one!

My attempt

Pride and pain. Daughter another’s joy.

Wonderwall

Challenge open Saturday 16 June 2018 – Thursday 21 June 2018

Welcome to the Six Word Story Challenge.

For those who have never dropped by before a new prompt is posted every Saturday morning at 9am GMT either here or on KirstyWrites.

And…. drumroll…. This week’s prompt is:

Wildlife

About the prompt

I have chosen wildlife as I’m following the Wildlife trust 30days wild challenge.

As this is an example, not an entry hopefully it is acceptable that I have based mine on a sweater shirt I used to have, which I think read:

A badger is so bashful,

He likes to wear a mask,

Across his eyes

My attempt

Shy badger wears mask across eyes.
