Word Prompt – Fandango – Innocuous

Prompt image for the Fandango One Word Challenge prompt

It didn’t look like an innocuous needle.

The dentist held it aloft like a talon. Thirty seconds of pain, was all that he asked of me. I closed my eyes, and dug my nails into the chair. Would it help if I sang I will survive? Probably not, but it was worth a try.

Minutes later, my gums were numb, and the broken tooth out.

It didn’t look like an innocuous needle, but it took away the pain.

  1. I was inspired by my visit to the dentist today. My mouth still feels like there are many marbles in there. I would take a pain killer, but I don’t think I could swallow water right now.
