99/100 Days of Creativity: Relax A Little

World Shotput Champion, Val Adams forgot everything she had been told in the last half hour, and broke all protocol to give the Queen a warm and friendly hug. Much to everyone’s surprise the Queen gave a delicate leoh and unexpectedly began to sob causing much consternation from officials and Royal minders alike.

The Queen abruptly dismissed all officials and guests to retire to her living room with Val for a nice long chat over a cup of tea where the Queen revealed that Val was the first person to hug her in over 20 years.


For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
leoh n.
A little gasp from being hugged too tightly.

Tomorrow’s word:
memel v.
To continue vaguely agreeing with someone you stopped listening to ages ago.
