Weekly Writing Prompt — Rip It Off

The bandage is starting to smell. I’m sure the wound is infected. But I’m afraid to remove the bandage. I know there will be pus, blood, and gook beneath it.

My friends tell me to stop being so passive. They say to be quick and just rip the bandage off. It’s the only way to deal with a relationship gone rancid.

(Exactly 61 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “bandage” in exactly 61 words. Also for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (passive).
