100 Word Story – Guard Duty (Part Three)

All work and no play makes Hiro a dull boy. His last couple shifts with the gang have been boring and lame, nothing exciting happening or anything worth remembering. After being assigned to lookout and guard duty for the one of the main hubs for the gang, Hiro thought he finally had a chance at seeing some action go down.

And yet, even at a place of major importance, nothing went down. All night he stood watch by the front door, watching people walk up and down the streets, couples hand in hand, and crowds of people shouting for fun.

And here he was, leaning on a wall, waiting for somebody or something good to happen.

100 Word Story – A Housewife’s Tale (Finale)

Marriage is one of the most dramatic changes a person can do that will forever affect the rest of their life. The idea of finding their “one true love” or a “soulmate” becomes a driving force desperate idiots use to find some kind of meaning in their boring lives. And once they find that person, have gone through the waves of emotional seduction, their eyes are no longer blinded by a fake sense of romance and heated passion.

Unfortunately for Helena, she was one of those idiots.

She fell for the suave advances of her husband, Markus. He knew exactly the right things to say, the right things to do at the right moment, and had swept Helena off of her feet. She offered to bear his children, polish his shoes before he left for work, and even was willing to experiment in the bedroom on a whim.

But one day, that magical spark of romance grounded and died.

100 Word Story – Rush Hour (Finale)

I really hate catching the late morning train for work. I memorized the arrival and departure times of the local station by my home, and I’ve seldom ever had issues with catching the train. However, I am human, and I do have my days where things are off. I missed the train today.

So now, I need to wait for a few minutes for the next arriving train. While the wait isn’t much of an issue, it’s the station that I’m in that’s the real problem.

The station was a hub for not only trains. Lowlifes, addicts, and runaways called this station home. Piss puddles were everywhere, discarded cigarette butts decorated the ground, and trash was thrown onto the train tracks. And even with the police standing guard upstairs, nothing was done.

May God save the person who decides to approach me…
