Very Short Stories, Week 15
Good morning, friends! Couple things to share today…
This week, My hubby and I are taking one of our nephews to stay with us. There’ll probably be some Pokemon Go and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Swimming, splash pads, day trips. Or maybe a more lazy week with in home reading and crafting. Who knows!
Because of this, I will most likely be absent from my blog and less active on Twitter (if you follow me on there; if not, here’s me! @KEMwriting ). There’s no point trying to guarantee blog posts when I’m going to be focused on having fun and laughs with my nephew!
It also means little editing will be done on my book. I plan on making time for it since the writer’s life for me will eventually mean children of my own. This will be a great way to figure that aspect out more.
While I’m off for a week of joy and adventures, I hope this week is fulfilling for the rest of you! Take care!
Oh, and enjoy my very short stories just below!
This is #folly, she cried and barrelled out the open window of the train compartment after her friend. She heard a splash seconds before cold water surrounded her, pulling at her limbs. Unbuttoning her heavy clothes, she sprung to the surface and sought out her friend.
Such a waste of time, she determined and slammed her laptop closed. What a #joke, thinking I could be a writer. She tossed her USB across the room and left it there like a piece of forgotten trash.
Pick me up now, it seemed to say from the floor. We’re not done yet.
Vivian stepped out of her room and the black dress clung to her body like a wet glove. A hesitant smile played on her lips as she descended the staircase. In front of Damian’s hungry gaze, her cheeks turned scarlet.
His kiss was sudden yet she #answered it with passion.
Give ’em #hell, his dad said and tapped his gloves.
He entered the cage to the roars of the crowd and threw his arms up high with his own shout. Pacing back and forth, he watched his opponent. They approached each other, knocked fists and squared up.
The bell rang.
What’s your #intent with my son? she asked. Her legs were crossed, hands rested on her knee.
I plan on making him happy til the end of my days, he answered and smiled. He fiddled with the ring box in his pocket.
That settles it then. You have my blessing, she grinned.
Do you get it yet?
I want You gone
Into a Darkness
only You can
Tired of cruel whims
that Sabotage my attempts
You’re a bad taste
I #renounce You
and Your Tainted Touch
Your Traitorous ways
#Stray dogs littered the streets; unwanted and untended. She shook her head at the sight until a wet nose kissed her hand. Smiling, she stroked the ragged pup and it demanded belly rubs. I can’t save them all but I can save this one, she mused and took it home with her.
