Her World

This post is for Trifecta: Week Fifty-One (Anniversary Challenge). The first paragraph was written by Joules, and was the first-ever Trifecta response, one year ago. Below it, I have written 100 words. My team mate Kat will write the concluding part.

"Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two. As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.

Her mind wandered back to that moment so many years ago. Despite her nervousness, she had known then that whatever the outcome, it would be all right. It was her destiny.


She opened her eyes. One line….. Gazing out of the floor to ceiling windows. Her office on the thirty third level, views across the park, the skyscrapers, the city. Today, this was her world. She had created an empire. Offices in seven countries, thirteen cities. Four hundred people. Appearances on TV, quoted regularly in the press. Success, money, recognition. Fate had been good.


She opened her eyes. Two lines…..

  2. She seems to have it all. Am anxious to see what two lines would mean for that.

  3. Well, she has the right attitude. "whatever the outcome, it would be all right.". I like her but I'm anxious to see what happens.

  4. Thirty-third level, like the nod.
    On the one hand she creates an Empire, so on the other an Empress? Hmmm.
