Sanna finds a voice - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's - Saturday Centus - Week 53

Jenny Matlock

Mrs. Jenny Matlock's instructions will follow my Saturday Centus-text for Week 53, which comes here:

Sanna Rumsten had reason to hold her tongue before moving to the new apartment. Her former husband tried to provoke her while she packed, and took every opportunity to humiliate and deride her; even at breakfast with the children.

Remembering that happy melody from the film about the transition from silent movies to the talkies, she started to hum the signature tune. Her ex kept complaining and Sanna begain singing out loud in order to not hear his harsh words. She sang "I'm singin' in the rain" until he left the room.
Sanna thought: "I'd like to teach the world to sing." Sanna had found her voice.

Wordcount according to WordCalc: 99

Best Wishes,

Here are Mrs. Matlock's instructions for Week 53:

Welcome to week fifty-three of Saturday Centus. Today I thought we could just continue on a pretty 'normal' SC. No tricks, no gimmicks. Just 100 words in whatever genre you like (not including the eight words of the prompt). And the prompt this week is: I'd like to teach the world to sing... Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog. Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

I really liked this Christina!~Ames

Sanna has her act together!

She did not stoop to her husband's bad behavior, and still was able to find her way clear.

Great job!

Jo said...

Good for Sanna ... she sounds like she is on her way to freedom.

Ann said...

Hooray for Sanna. Another good one.

Dazee Dreamer said...

I truly loved this one. Especially since I have a cousin that has a husband that would do the same thing. Great job.

Sanna is a strong woman.

Christine said...

The best way to irritate someone who is being a jerk, is to sing over their voice. This is so true. This was great. said...

This is so liberating to me as the reader. Great job, Anna. You really get us feeling for your characters.

Sue said...

I really like these Sanna stories.


Nasreen said...

Go are better off without that jerk in your life...

Judie said...

What a smart woman Sanna is! Great take on the prompt, Anna!!

Anna said...

Oh, all you wonderful people! You make me feel warm inside, and tears come to my eyes!

This is a true "Sanna-story". And it only happened to me just a couple of days ago. I just had to sing "Singin' in the Rain" in the kitchen at breakfast. It made my son smile.

Hugs to you all!

Excellent job Anna ! I love how she finally found her voice and used it to slam her ex's cruel, harsh treatment !!!

I totally dislike her husband. He reminds me very much of my ex.

It's funny how you wreaked such emotion in my heart with this little gem of a story.

Sing, girl! Sing!

Amanda said...

Short but powerful. That certainly stirred some strong emotions in me. :)
