How Do I Tell Her About You?
Gone to mum's for the weekend
I found the note on the fridge when I got up.
'We can't go on like this, it's not fair on Laura.'
Balancing the phone, I took the note and read each word slowly, over and over again, as if by doing so I could stop her from getting there. Praying for a slow puncture or multiple car pile up.
'How do I tell her about you?'
'It will kill her,' I said.
'That's not possible,' said her mum, a hundred miles away in Connecticut.
'I've already done that. She's in the shed.'
This 100 word piece was written for 100 words on Saturday, a writing challenge that I have just discovered. I wrote this on Tuesday so I don't know if it still counts because the Linky is still open for a few days. Even if I'm too late, it was fun to write.
