Okay, so I didn't sign up for the Twilight 25. I thought they were going to dole out the pictures and I'd have to write slowly over the course of the summer, and well, I do field work. I'm probably not going to be writing as much in the next few months (I know you're all breathing a sigh of relief). BUT, since all 25 pictures have been posted, I'm playing along regardless. Head over to community()livejournal()com/thetwilight25/tag/round%20three:%20prompts to find the pictures that I'm using for prompts. There are also links to all the people who ACTUALLY signed up for this. I'm going to TRY to do them in order. At least I will be posting them in order.
A little explainer on the first. The timer is in the cottage. That's really all you need to know. It makes the joke make sense (I hope)
I flipped the little timer, remembering.
Jacob, his bucket full, standing, counting aloud. "One, two, ... TEN!" The bucket empty, he sat to refill.
"It's like a clock," he said. "A ten-second clock. One...."
I crouched, scooping a handful of rocks to add.
"Thanks, Bella." He smiled, white in dark . "One... eight..." The sand stopped flowing. "What?" He looked at his screened pail. "Where are nine and ten?"
I laughed. I had done it. "The holes are blocked."
Jacob pouted. "Stupid rocks, stopping time."
I laughed, the sand didn't move.
