Each Wednesday I’ll post a sentence to start the ‘Ninety Nine‘ story off, and then anyone can join in and finish it so that the story has a total of 99 words. Some Ninety Nines will be more difficult to finish than others. Please keep it reasonably clean. Thanks.

Here’s the first sentence…

Another roof tile crashed to the concrete below and broke in two.

And here’s my effort:

Another roof tile crashed to the concrete below and broke in two.  From her vantage point at the front bedroom window, Edith shook her head.  There was nothing she could do.  The house had been empty for decades, and time had caught up with it.  However, she knew that she could never leave it; her children had been born in the room where she now stood, and the house held many memories. 

She turned from the window, floated through the wall, and glided down the ramshackle flight of stairs to the garden where her children had once run free.
