    […] Three Word Wednesday : weary, shard, pulse […]

  41. Asakuun Draconis Says:

    Here is my Three-Word-Wednesday Piece:

    “Pulse is steady,” the nurse said. I sighed in relief – it was an amazing feat to still be alive after that shard of glass so near a person’s heart. Because I had not slept at all last night fearing for my sister’s life, my arms were leaden and sore. I could not feel my legs. My entire body was tired, and my weary face showed that the most.

  42. Irene Says:

    pulse of a heart
