Rochelle’s challenge this week is provided by the intriguing photo of an abandoned prosthetic leg. Here’s my 100 word take on it.

THE PRICE

‘The traffic, it’s so noisy, the roar hurts my ears. Need to retreat, back off, feels so hot. I can see the enemy by that building, ready to fire at us. Gotta move, can’t move, my real leg is in spasm, can’t stand up.

In my dreams they fire at me, I want to run, can’t I’m frozen. Daren’t go to sleep or they’ll get me. Why is this happening ? Its my fault, could’ve warned the others, seen the ambush sooner. Feel so ashamed, so scared.’

‘Hey Ed, my brother, let me help you old friend, cos you saved my life that time….’
