Day 1759 : 5 minutes Freewrite : Tuesday - prompt : The smell of decay


As soon as Clara walked in she perceived the smell of decay in the house.
She wondered where it was coming from, she used her nose to trace it to the kitchen.
Her husband was cooking something.
"What's that honey?" she asked.
"Babe welcome"
"Mum said it is effective" Alex said smiling.
"Effective for what?" she asked still confused.
"For fertility babe, it's been seven years you know"
"Mum is on my neck, asking me daily of when I am going to give her grandchildren" Alex said tearing up.
"Honey, stop all this"
"You should know this your act won't get me to drink that"
"The smell alone can kill me completely" she said leaving the kitchen with both hands covering her nose.
"Please honey go and throw that thing away"
"Before you kill you sense organs trying to cook poison".
Alex who was enduring the smell for long, rushed out with the substance and threw it away.
