Fifty-Word Story: Getting Dark

I awake. My head’s pounding. She’s sobbing.

“I’m s-s-sorry.”

I can’t see her, but she sounds distraught. I try to reassure her, but my head hurts.

“No one leaves me!” She screams.

My pillow’s saturated in blood. Sandra trembles in the corner as she holds my gun.

It’s getting dark.

  4. Creepy. As if it wasn’t hard enough to leave someone as it is. His gun didn’t help much, did it. Great little story.

    • Thanks darling — although I think your dark has lightened up a bit, because of your sweet Caeden. You have a library of your wonderful children’s stories you can turn into a book dedicated to him. 😘
