#FlashFiction 9/16

Chirp

Car locked and bags in hand, Sam scurries through the drizzle to front of the store.

James is late again. She wonders if he’ll show up. Lately he is full of excuses. Is this the beginning of the end?

Swoosh, the doors part, Sam steps in wiping her feet and shaking off the cold. She’ll walk off her worry. One lap, then two.

The big box retailer is almost empty except for a few workers stocking shelves.

Hehehehehe. Giggles

As she arounds the corner looking down the aisle no one is there.

Tittering shadows

Turns another corner, another empty aisle.

Yet she knows she’s not alone. Her pace quickens. Her heartbeat does too.

A big booming voice bellows over the PA system. Attention Sam today’s your lucky day!

As always more to come.

For 9/16/18 ~ The Story of Tonight

Helen have us a lovely prompt today – glass.  My first thought was Blondie’s Heart of Glass followed quickly by Annie Lennox’s Walking on Broken Glass.  I have not checked yet but I am 99.9% sure these two songs will appear at least once.   Next my mind turned to Pink’s Raise Your Glass but I posted that recently for a 3 -day lyric challenge.

Hmmm.  Think, think and think – glass. Raise your glass to freedom!!!  Hamilton here I come!!! May 2019 can’t get here soon enough.

“The Story Of Tonight”
I may not live to see our glory
But I will gladly join the fight
And when our children tell our story
They’ll tell the story of tonight

Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

I may not live to see our glory
But I will gladly join the fight
And when our children tell our story
They’ll tell the story of tonight

Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight
Let’s have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
They’ll tell the story of tonight
Raise our glass to freedom
They’ll tell the story of tonight
Raise our glass to freedom
They’ll tell the story of tonight
Telling the story of tonight
Let’s have another round tonight
The story of tonight
