Aheila’s Drabble Day – Wind

A little bit late but here with Aheila’s Drabble Day Challenge. I had some issues yesterday and couldn’t write, lol. J All sorted now.

This was our prompt:

Remember how it works?

Read the prompt and find your angle.
Write a drabble (100 words story, give or take five words).
Post a direct link to your drabble in the comments (or, if you don’t have a blog, just go ahead and post your drabble in the comments).
In the post on your blog, make sure to link back to this post.
Today’s prompt is: Wind!
I’m afraid I don’t have an extra challenge this week. *shrugs* Hope you don’t mind!


To understand this you have to watch the video below. J It’s a homemade one.


It is starts softly at first, just brushing through my ears, a whisper, no more.

Then, as the force beneath me grows, it starts rushing by, pushing against my chest, threatening to tear me from my seat but I remain where I am. Its whisper becomes a howl and then a deafening blast that steals all sound from me. It whips tears into my eyes, threatening to blind me for my trespassing as humans weren’t meant to go this fast.

Still, I close my eyes and laugh – shouting as I do:

    Good one, Alyss! I should have guessed you were riding, but I was thinking SA storm or fast cars, lol.
    p.s. I posted a Drabble, too. 😉

    Laughs…I love your description of how the wind changes. I can hear the laughter from you as you fly!

      I would imagine that it starts off with a gentle trot and by the end it has turned into a breathless , exhilirating ride … doing what you love and do best …
      I love how you describe the build-up of the wind from a mere whisper at the beginning to a deafening roar at the end !
