N is for Nadir

Today I have a drabble for you.  For those of you who don't know, a drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.

Today's word: NADIR



The nadir is the lowest point.  Rock bottom.  The point at which you have fallen as far as you can.
Nadine couldn’t help but feel that this was where she was right now.  Nothing could be worse than this.  Never in her eleven years of life had she known anything worse.
She’d never forgive Mrs. Beckman for making her share a seat on the bus with Bobby Hines.  He smelled like feet, though Nadine thought most boys did.  Bobby, however, had committed a crime far worse than bad personal hygiene.
He’d pushed her once when they were five.
No forgiveness.


  1. I've forgiven for much worse. Nadine needs to take a chiil pill.

    N is for Numerology

  2. Makes me think of all those variations of "There's rock bottom, then twenty feet more crap underneath that, then me." (Was that one Rachel from Friends?)
