100 Word Story – One-Sided Desire (Part Three)

Like a loyal pup to an owner, I ran to the front door at the first sound of keys jingling. My spine shivered with electric pulses, making me tremble even down at the knee. My eyes didn’t dare look away from the front door; I wanted to see my love walk through at the exact moment.

As the doorknob turned and the door slid open, I greeted Stella with a warm, passionate smile, “Welcome home, dear.”

A pair of irritated, hazel eyes met mine for a brief moment. Stella walked past me without even acknowledging me.

“She… must be tired.”

100 Word Story – One-Sided Desire (Part Two)

The warmth from the fireplace may have warmed up my body, but I still felt frozen on the inside, even through the thick blanket wrapped around me from the bedroom. The fire was roaring and cracking in the brick fire pit. The engulfed logs and timber seemed to dance away as it burned up and turned into rising black fumes.

Even with such a beautiful show of nature in front of me my mind didn’t wander away from Stella—I yearned for her dearly.

My own mind began to tempt me, the fire cackling out and saying her name, “Stella.”

100 Word Story – One-Sided Desire (Part One)

I couldn’t help myself from staring out of the front lawn window, awaiting for her to return. Even though the blinding sun was overhead, I just couldn’t look away from the thin glass in front. Every second she’s away from me I could feel my body burning up inside, longing to have her by my side.

My hand pressed against the window, feeling the cold sting of the wintertime weather on my palm, “I hope you don’t freeze out there. I would freeze up should you not come home.”

My eyes glanced up and down the sidewalk, waiting for her.

100 Word Story – Large Foods (Finale)

Sarah’s high heels clacked against the sidewalk with every step. I couldn’t help but sigh when I saw the total bill at the bottom of the receipt again.

“Jesus,” I groaned, “this is gonna eat a hole in my wallet.”

I felt Sarah’s nails dig a bit into my upper arm as we spoke, “… I’m sorry for getting out of hand.”

As much as I wanted to be angry at her, I had no right; I said some pretty nasty stuff too. With a heavy sigh, I kissed her forehead, “I’m sorry, too.”

“Do you mean it?”

“I do.”

100 Word Story – Large Foods (Part Four)

We didn’t look at each other for the rest of the night, eating our food in silence. Whenever the waiter came over to check on us we spoke for ourselves, never acknowledging the other. It was the same way when we ordered more food and desserts: no eye contact, no communication.

As I was eating my way through my steak, that’s when I came to the realization, “Holy shit, everything’s being charged to my card…”

After a never-ending war of silence, I looked at Sarah and said “You’ll have to chip in on the bill.”

She sucked her teeth, “Cheapskate.”

100 Word Story – Large Foods (Part Three)

There was a strange silence between the two of us after airing out some small grievances. Aside from the loud chatter from the other patrons around us, the only sound we made was the clang from silverware hitting our plates.

Wanting to reach a common ground, I began to speak while I moved a meatball around with a fork, “I think we took things a bit further this time.”

Sarah glared at me, “It only started because you said my ass was big.”

“It’s true. It’s not my fault that everything you eat goes straight there.”

“Fuck you, tiny dick!”

100 Word Story – Large Foods (Part Two)

The waiter brought us our food, most of what’s on the platter going over to Sarah’s half of the table. Steak, baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, the works—all of that was just for her. All I had in front of me was just a simple plate of pasta and a side of breadsticks.

“Do you really plan on eating all that, woman?” I blatantly asked.

“Think I can’t?” she replied.

“With that big mouth, it’s possible.”

“Too bad I can’t say the same thing about your dick.”

“Wait, what?”

“It’s too small to even fit in my ‘big mouth.’”

“I can’t decide on what I want to eat. There’s just so many different options to choose from.”

Sarah kept looking at the menu while I was already talking to our waiter about what I wanted. “You can go ahead and put my order in. My wife will need a few more minutes.”

The waiter nodded and headed for the back of the restaurant. I looked at Sarah, her face being hidden behind the menu.

“There’s just too much,” she laughed. “It’s like it gets bigger every time we come back here.”

“Too bad your ass has the same problem.”

100 Word Story – Annual Check-up (Finale)

I stepped out of the clinic, using my hand to block the sun from getting in my eyes. The crisp air filled my lungs as I walked towards the train station, wanting to go home.

I blended into the early afternoon rush crowd, swiping my card to get through the turnstile. I saw my train approaching the platform and I weaved through everybody to grab a seat for my long ride home.

As I rocked with the motion of the train, I got an email on my phone: “Don’t forget to schedule your appointment for next year.”

“… Adulting sucks.”

100 Word Story – Annual Check-up (Part Four)

I kept looking at the bandage on my upper arm, a growing warmth and itchiness taking over on the injection site. I tried my best to scratch through the soft padding of the bandage, “Damn, this sucks. Now I’m gonna be sore for the next two days.”

With the doctor gone, I picked up my bag and headed through the waiting area. As I walked down the hallway, I caught a glance of the blonde young woman again as she passed by; she was shaking, holding a paper in her hands.

Must have tested positive. Feel kinda bad for her.

100 Word Story – Annual Check-up (Part Three)

“Everything’s normal—weight, heart rate, height, blood pressure—it’s all good.”

I gave the doctor a slight nod and smiled, “That’s good to hear.”

The doctor smiled back, looking up from her computer monitor, “Any issues you’ve been having? Any pain, symptoms of illness, soreness?”

“No, nothing.”

“That’s good.” The doctor looked at her monitor again, reading off my medical records. “Looks like you’re due for a flu shot. Want to get one now?”

My heart beat instantly soared at hearing about that, the horrors of needles burned in my memories. However, my mouth spoke lies, “Sure, let’s do it.”

100 Word Story – Annual Check-up (Part Two)

The blonde young woman next to me tried to start a conversation even though I was clearly not interested in talking, “Hey, hey. Four-Eyes!”

Annoyed, I decided to play along in the hope that she would subside. I closed my book and looked at her, replying, “What?”

“What cha here for?”

“Just a yearly physical, making sure I’m in good shape.”

Her eyes widened and shimmered with surprise, “Lucky! I’m here to get tested.”

The sound of her being tested grabbed my attention, “Tested? For what?”

“Chlamydia. My boyfriend got it, and I know it wasn’t from me.”

The fuck?!
