The News – Write Now, Writing Prompt #127 and 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups

nodus-tollens
nodus tollens n. the realization that the plot of your life doesn’t make sense to you anymore-that although you thought you were following the arc of the story, you keep finding yourself immersed in passages you don’t understand, that don’t even seem to belong in the same genre-which requires you to go back and reread

Today’s Prompt:
They sat impatiently in the little room, waiting for the doctor to come in. They have been married for ten years and were trying to have a baby for quite some time. It was the waiting and the anticipation that were causing tension in their fragile relationship. The frustration every month, the timing as well the physical and mental strain while undergoing IVF treatment. They’ve decided that if it was negative again, they would stop trying and just accept the fact that there won’t be any offspring. …then, in the middle of the noise… the doctor gave them the news that will change their lives – they are going to have a baby!
