CW: Wishful thinking.

“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the phrase “for one day.””
a prompt for this week’s CW piece.

That night Bill laid in bed and prayed: “If she would only stop nagging. Even for one day. God, just one day. It’s all I need. One day without her nagging.”

When morning came, the sound of silence penetrated his ears. Usually, he would hear clinking dishes and what he always thought was purposeful – Angela slamming pots and pans against one another.

Bill turned to his right.

Her lips blue. Her body cold.

“Noooooo” – he screamed into the heavens with deep sorrow.

An eternity without her nagging.

An eternity without her love.

He got more than he bargained for.

    1. So true. We often have no idea how our prayers, if answered could change our lives.

      Indeed. it is so much easier to point out the bad, and overlook the good.

      Thanks for stopping by, Charli.

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    1. I’m sorry that happened. Usually, if the comment does not appear, it means it went to spam. But I checked all over and saw nothing.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      As for hints, write a lot and read other people’s posts a lot. Here are a few posts I wrote in the past that I think might help you:
