The power of mystery

All hope was not lost.

They moved forward, aware that it could be the discovery of the century.

This text is my submission to this weekend Trifecta writing challenge : Trifextra: Week Sixty-four.

Here is the challenge :

This weekend we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:
  • charge
  • century
  • lost

J’adore cet exercice d’écriture. Je pensais que je serais moins inspirée qu’il y a de 4 semaines avec ces trois mots, mais une idée est spontanément venue à mon esprit.

Et  regarder et apprécier, s’il vous plaît, la façon dont j’ai réussi à avoir 36 mots en anglais et 36 mots en français. 😉
