Knock Three Times

Jim gives us a little spice with Knock Three Times!

A Unique Title For Me

Hey, girl, what are you doing down there, one floor below me.  Oh, my sweetness, I adore you.  Let me know if you want a booty call.  You know that my wife checks all my messages, so if you are down for some fun, then knock three times on the ceiling if you want me.  I don’t want to sound utterly desperate or obscene, but my wife left for the weekend, and I am all yours if you want me.   I just ordered a pizza and I have a bottle of wine.  If you prefer for me to come down to your place, then just bang twice on the pipes.

Once upon a time two hundred and seventy years ago during The Pandemic Period, many industrious entrepreneurs realized they could get rich on taxpayer’s money by building complexes to house the pockets of noncompliant citizens who refused to take a government mandated experimental ‘medicine’.

Contrary to safety codes (and human decency) Containment Buildings sprung up everywhere and those ‘antivaxxer criminals’ were rounded up and imprisoned there.

Those who ‘held out’ were ultimately left ‘in the dark’ until one day their caretakers came no more to their doors. Soon, desperate hunger drove them to break out. The most industrious ones “MacGyvered” their own escape then aided the others.

When they ventured out into daylight, they found no one, absolutely NO ONE, alive.
The now Free…

Di has the protective father thing pinned down!


His girlfriend’s father was protective of his only child, and made sure no harm came to her. He was open minded about her relationships and gave her privacy and respect, but no-one was going to creep around with illicit intentions if he had anything to do with it.
The upstairs outer door from her bedroom led downstairs to his study.
So, after moments of passion, there was no way a suitor could sneak off into the night.
His daughter deserved to wake up in the morning to her lover, not an empty bed.

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 11/15/2022

Welcome to the 6-minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

two closed orange doors

This picture shows two doors with stairs connecting them outside the building but no way to get down from them (no fire escape ladder or stairs).

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
