Week #59 5G

Times like these, I was scared. I was standing in the middle of my city. The whole entire city was empty. I felt like everyone had left and left me behind. But then I heard screaming. From a distance. I heard the screaming again. Then bang! A person with a mask was standing behind me and he said ‘Go home! We are in a Covid-19 lockdown’. I didn’t understand why. He said it again, ‘Go home’. I walked home through the quiet empty streets. I thought about what it felt like to be in lockdown. My world felt dead.

  1. Hi Leo,
    This was really interesting, and a great 100wc entry! I hope your experience of lockdown wasn’t as scary as the one you described.
    You did a really great job with your descriptions, and made me understand what it might have felt like to be in your story. I also enjoyed the different lengths of sentences you used, because that gave your story a good flow, and is quite a unique thing to do.
    Next time I would like you to use even more description because you did this so well, and just keep up the great work!

  2. Hi Leo,

    This was a fabulous response to the prompt this week ; you really conveyed a lot of emotion to your reader through your excellent use of the narrator’s voice. I agree, it does feel quite strange to see everyone in masks but I think soon we’ll get used it and then it won’t feel so scary anymore.
    I hope you’ve had some positive experience of lockdown. I live in the countryside in England and have enjoyed going on long walks through the fields with my daughter to visit some horses.

    Keep up the great work.
