Trifextra – Week 73 – Third Time’s The Charm

This weekend Trifextra requests we weave a tale with 33 of our own words inspired by the idiom, third time’s the charm. – See more at: Trifextra 73

If you want another challenge to make all your words count the Trifecta challenges may be your speed. This Trifextra allows us 33 words to fill out a story. I hope you enjoy my effort.


 Xander heard the signal to abandon ship. The Titanic was unsinkable.

A boot drove him from the first lifeboat.

A screaming child from the next. 

A welcome hand from a stranger meant salvation.
