The Lie

Once in a while the prompts from more than one blog hop can be combined into a story that can be linked to several blog hops.  By finishing a sentence, writing a story in exactly 100 words using only six sentences, I am able to link this story to the following blog hops:

Ivy's SSS - Lie

What I'm really trying to say is, he never supposed he would lie.  He knew the person quite well, so it must have been from fear that his uttered responses came forth not once, but three times.  Did he not fathom what he had done in those moments of darkness? It was later when he heard the crowing of the cock that he realized the magnitude of what he had said.  He knew his friend would not hold a grudge, or even the idea, "but I thought we were friends." Upon seeing the forgiving look of his friend, Peter wept.

    1. Sometimes the stories would be so bizarre trying to link three prompts to three blogs, so I usually don't do this. It is fun to try, if I think it might work.

  9. The ultimate lie and betrayal, and you managed to wrap this altogether in a fresh approach that took my breath away. It make the story we are familiar with very personal and very real. Excellent, and heartbreaking at the same time.

    1. Thank you for your comments and insight on this. I agree, that the moment of his realization must have been heartbreaking, but then in the scriptures we can read the rest of the story.
