Sarah at Slouching Past 40 challenged her readers to write a story in 100 words. This is my submission and my true story:
It was a Sunday night and she’d opted not to stay at her fiancé’s house but head back to her place to start off the week.
She couldn’t put her finger on it, the house simply “felt funny.” Still, she saw nothing unusual in the semi-darkness. Flipping lights as she went, she walked toward the bedroom.
As she reached for the closet door, he stepped out.
“Please don’t,” he asked as she backed away, reaching for the phone. For a moment she almost stopped. If he just left, it would be okay.
Then, “No. Never again.” She dialed the police.
