Another 50-word story. This time using a prompt from Ragtag Community. The Lady’s word is recharge. Whoa! Serendipity! I just listened to a podcast “Laziness Doesn’t Exist.”

“Recharge is redundant.” Matthew kept his focus on his keyboard. “The word you want is ‘charge’.”

“To reiterate,” Stephanie said.  “I need time alone to recharge and refresh.”

“Iterate,” Matthew pressed his lips into a straight line. “To utter repeatedly.”

“I need a rest from this.”

“Good. Concise and understandable.”

I had a bit of difficulty getting the image in my head confined to 50 words. Please tell me how you read Stephanie’s and Matthew’s relationship. I wonder if I got the words right.

I hope you like my 50-word stories. Please feel free to comment and share. And don’t forget to pop over to Ragtag Community and see what other writers did with recharge.
