The prompt this week is a ‘Semordnilap’ – two words that are reversals of each other like Stressed/Desserts, Reed/Deer, Semordnilap/Palindromes. Click here for the prompt post from Tara R.
My prompt is – Rats/Star
Rats. They were out in force. Jackson huddled into a corner wishing that he’s chosen a spot near a warm vent. The rats left him alone at least, the dark mass of them focussed on the bins at the end of the alley. It was cold, very cold but the sky was clear at least. He could see the moon so bright and clear that he could spot the craters, the moon’s seas. Seas. That was knowledge leftover from his astronomy days. The telescope was the first thing to go to the pawn shop followed quickly by books detailing every single star.

Poor Jackson. It’s never fun to sell your most valuable belongings, and especially seeing as he values his astronomy and the knowledge so much. Sad, but touching.
Thanks very much.
Very clever starting with one Semordnilap and ending with its reverse. Nicely done!
Thanks Tara ☺
