Here's today's picture and my entry:
Brick by brick, row by row, the Queen waited as servants walled her off from her past life, her punishment for not producing an heir for her king-to him she meant nothing.
Note: it was brought to my attention that the character counter I was using (I just set up readability statistics in Word to count my characters) is faulty. So, here is a more slimmed down version (and a bonus one to spare):
Brick by brick, row by row, the queen waited as servants walled off her past, punishment for no heir for her king-to him she meant nothing. (139 characters)
She was given both bread and water, but the queen shuddered at the thought of nightfall-who’s company would she have to keep? (127 characters)
