CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION: Incorporate 3 of these 5 words into a 100 word story: enzyme, ivy, bishop, blister, lollipop.

Girl embracing an elephant

Enzymes extracted from the hair of an African elephant provided the antidote, so when Ivy licked the medicinal lollipop, her mind recalled the putrid odor of the city zoo.

“Mommy, this tastes like elephant ass,” she said with a sour face.

“Don’t say ass,” her mother scolded. “Suck on it, like this.” She twirled the lollipop in her mouth with an exaggerated smile.

Ivy wasn’t fooled. “I don’t want it.”

The alarm blared through the hall. Her mother’s face contorted in fear as she forced the lollipop into Ivy’s mouth and held her jaw firmly shut.

Last week was a bit rough, but this week’s story turned out much better. I love the 100 word challenges! They force you to be succinct.
