Five Word Challenge: Week 1 – A second horror story

So I had a second idea for a story for the week 1 of the Five Word Challenge. I wrote this story in about half a day because as I got halfway through the first story I thought this idea might be better and wrote this one instead. The problem was that I hadn’t really thought this story all the way though and had to rush it a bit leading to a weak ending. But still enjoy.

  • Ship

Do you have an example of such a word (or, alternatively, of a word that sounds like the exact opposite of what it refers to)? What do you think creates this effect?

1p for the privilege of passing an ID check

A teenager was charged 1p at a branch of Bargain Booze for showing her ID. Now there’s no complaint about store workers checking someone’s ID when they are buying alcohol, as if they don’t and you are underage they can get into a lot of trouble. But charging someone for it?
