Challenge Corner #8 – Six Days

A couple of weeks ago, I was looking at my calendar, and decided to count the number of free days I had left in my Easter break. It turned out the number was six, which made me panic, because I had said I was going to do lots of work while I was out of uni. But on the bright side, it gave me an idea to challenge you guys with!

With that introduction, you can probably guess what I’m about to give you. This week’s basic challenge is:

There are six days left.

Six days left until what? You decide! Tell me about the time when there are six days left until something, and why those six days matter. I look forward to seeing what you’re all counting down to!

And, as ever, I’ve got some super bonus options for you. These are 100% optional – throw them in if you’re feeling like you need a bit more bite in your challenge!

+ Bonus Points if a ring is important in some way.

++ Double Bonus Points if the ring is actually made of something edible.

+++ Triple Bonus Points if the ring gets eaten.

Voila! Now, off you go! Don’t forget to bring your masterpieces back and share them in the comments – it’s great reading what different people get from a single prompt.

    My initial response to this (I’ll finish it later):

    The world was created in seven days
    but destroyed in six:
    they couldn’t take the day to rest,
    though they would have liked to.

        I actually decided that I liked it as it was! I made a few tiny tweaks though:

        Title: Destructing a Creation

        The world was created in seven days
        but destroyed in six:
        we couldn’t take the day to rest,
        though we would have liked to.

    sugar filled and pink she dreams
    of the cotton candy rings –

    the sticky sweet expands in her palms
    she yearns to feel the soft tug of a pull,
    to lick it off across the mischievous grins.
    to catch hold of the fluff
    of normalcy and pain;
    she waits.

    she counts down the days
    in one hand —
    six more to go.
    her eyes wide shut –
    anticipation and hopes
    of a new dream with
    five fingers fair
    to cut across the cotton candy.
