CW: February Collection – One day at a time…
To give you a break from my usual walls of text, today, I present to you two recently crafted short stories. 99-words each. Enjoy!
TITLE: “A million dollar question”
They stopped at the local bar on their evening walk around town.
“Wanna get a drink?” Scott asked.
“Sure,” Emily shrugged.
Inside, a live band played and patrons swayed to the beat. The music was loud, but the vocals decent and the songs classic.
“I said: ‘Hey! What’s going on?'” Scott belted out.
“Hmmm… but he only sings funny, made up lyrics,” Emily frowned.
When Linda Perry sat down next to the couple, everything changed.
Scott now has a recording deal and Emily a new lover.
Which one of them was at the right place at the right time?
TITLE: “Frozen in time”
When Octavia received a call from the hospital informing her of her mother’s death, all she could feel was anger. The two of them had not been in touch for years, ever since Bianca kicked her daughter out of the house for sneaking around with a guy almost twice her age.
“As long as you live under my roof-“
That night, Octavia snuck out for the last time.
Going through Bianca’s possessions at the hospital, Octavia stumbled upon a butterfly frozen in time, beyond a framed piece of glass. Her last Mother’s Day gift.
Tears streamed down Octavia’s cheeks.
