The picture has absolutely nothing to do with Saturday Centus by Jenny Matlock. Jenny likes to present a writing challenge each week and see what we can do with it. I'm always more than a day late and a dollar short...but I get there.
This week's challenge was 106 words including the phrase "the chair dominated the small room".
The owner had died but the memories and the chair remained. How many times had we sat in that chair being punished for some indiscretion, for some faux pas, we had no clue we had committed?

It was time to break the chain. This had gone on too long. The legacy of the chair must be stopped here…with us.
The chair dominated the small room and it beckoned with a promise of pain.
We remembered Mother smiling when she placed us there. Instead of destroying the evil, smiling, we announced, “Time out!”
