Friday, 5/8/09 - "THE BOX - SHATTERED"

(Bill Wilson's meeting room)




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 - SHATTERED"

She glances at her watch. It's three hours since they talked and now she and Lucy are in a room filled with laughing, smiling people who seem to glow just like Lucy.

What is happening?


She doesn't know, but she feels lighter, freer.

The room then becomes silent. She hears, "God grant me the serenity..."

Note: The following was LAST WEEK'S "55 Flash Fiction Friday":

"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!"

Whether the beginning of a story, or the ending of a story...I like it-- "God grant me the serenity..."

It's like "Welcome Home!"

I have the feeling next week's 55 will include the phrase "keep coming back." (only 3 words there!)

Mona said...

sometimes we have to think out of the box, to know the truth. And truth has no obligation to console us.

Great 55. Yes, grant us all serenity. These days, we need all the help we can get, if you ask me. Love your work this Friday. You did an outstanding job.

My 55 is posted now. Either you can use the direct link at the top of my Friday post or scroll down below the Friday's show n tell photos. Have a super day.
