Friday, 5/1/09 - "THE BOX - IV"






Every Friday, compose a short story
of 55 words - no more, no less,
if you want to join in the fun and games
and give it a try..post your story
and report to the boss G-Man!

















"THE BOX - IV"

They had met sitting at adjacent tables. She averted her eyes, then sneaked peeks at this stranger who fairly glowed.

The lady smiled at her with a smile that lit up the cafe and said softly, "Hi, I'm Lucy. We both seem to be alone. Want to talk?"

She hesitated and then cautiously replied, "Okay!"

THE BOX - Part III

Here she is, his marionette, trying desperately to pull her own string, reach out for that pink phone.

Suddenly it rings. Fear courses through - dark and quick. She reaches, snatches it up.

Hears, "Remember me? We met at the coffee shop last week. Wanna try one of the meetings, twelve steps I told you about?"
