Execution Day



This was written in response to the Trifextra Challenge:
In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.” Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it. Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words
exactly. – See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com
