The challenge for this day was to write a story of exactly 100 words about a destroyed friendship, something we all have experienced.

What makes a solid friendship come crashing down like a sandcastle, a friendship we think will test the tides of time and prevail? 

She lost a friend last night. Her friend did not die but their precious relationship did. The vitriolic words from her friend’s mouth were like a slow-burning poison in her gut. Never had she been so verbally (and needlessly) attacked. It was shocking; she will never speak with her friend again. Can anger of such magnitude reveal a person’s true colors?

What a selfish way to act. What an awful way for a friendship to die.
