Craving Freedom

Freedom threw her favorite sweater into her suitcase at the last minute. She hurriedly closed the lid, but was careful not to make a sound. She was sitting on top, trying to make it close that last half inch when the alarm went off.

“CRAP!” she hissed. She had totally forgotten about the automatic setting on her alarm clock. Sweat dotted her upper lip as she frantically worked to close the case.

“Freedom! Time to get up!” her mother yelled from down the hallway.

She sighed with relief as it finally clicked. Grabbing the case, she ran toward the window.

  1. Freedom is on her way. I love the symbolic use of her name, as well as the potential for more story. I want to know why she’s leaving and where she is going to go.

  2. This is great! I would love to know what happens next to both these characters and that is always a good sign of excellent writing! Thank you so much for joining the 100WCGU!
