100 Word Story – Watch the Window (Finale)

The class screamed out to Henry, pleading for him to back away from the window ledge. He kept his arms out wide, his back towards the wide, open school grounds below.

Henry’s breath was stuck with heavy pants, his urge to please the girl growing. “Like this? Is this how you wanted me?”

Far on the other side of the room, the girl was stuck with a nasty grin, nodding as Henry put his life on the line. Among the loud commotion in the classroom, she mouthed the words, “Do it.”

His intentions clear, Henry took one last step back.

100 Word Story – Watch the Window (Part Four)

Henry quickly became infatuated by the girl’s smile; he was thinking about how, out of everybody in the room, the girl focused solely on him. He started to wonder what would have happened if he never looked away from the window.

The girl saw that Henry was focusing on her, and motioned for him to come to her desk. Ignoring the distance, and the small chatter of students between them, Henry navigated the sea of desks in order to get closer.

The girl opened her mouth to speak, and Henry knelt on one leg.

“The window—jump out of it.”

The bright orange flame slowly danced in the palm of the girl’s hand. She didn’t flinch from having the gentle fire in her hand. In fact, she seemed to be enjoying it; her eyes gleamed with excitement and her cheeks were flushed red, almost embarrassed about this.

Henry mouthed “Why do you have a lighter?” to the girl, but all she did was stare at him with a strange, bewitching expression. Soon after, Henry started to feel a warm sensation burning in his gut; he couldn’t take his eyes off of her

“I… want to see her smile even more.”

“You’re bored too, right?” Henry whispered to the girl.

With a slight shrug, brown-haired girl nodded, wanting to find a way to watch the summer weather just outside of the window. Hesitant, the girl watched the professor for a moment, making sure he was fully occupied with talking about boring mathematics. She brought her gaze back to Henry, a small, sly smile on her face. With one hand, she pointed down, signaling him to look under her desk.

Henry questioned the girl’s motive, but thought nothing of it. He leaned over and looked under the desk.

Is that a lighter?

This place is just a prison for children, where they’re forced to conform to society’s rules.

Henry glanced at the front of the room; the visiting math professor was still writing some more math problems on the blackboard. He continued his lecture about how to find solutions to equations with multiple variables.

Henry let out a mental sigh, wishing that class came to an abrupt end so he could enjoy the hot summer day outside. He looked around at his fellow classmates, many of them struggling to stay awake. One student, a brown-haired girl, locked eyes with him.

The hell?

100 Word Story – Grades (Finale)

Mary went into the trunk of car to grab more rope while I finished binding up the man’s wrists. He tried to struggle his way off of the ground, so I slammed his head down, knocking him out.

Mary came back and handed me the extra rope, noticing the man, “Wow. I didn’t think you’d be able to do that. He was pretty big.”

I shrugged, “I didn’t think so either.” Getting to my feet, I turned around and asked her what was on my mind, “So, did I pass?”

She answered, sly smile on her face, “With flying colors.”

“Back up, I’m warning you.” The man urged me to stay away. The way he looked at me as I approached the two of them was nothing but anger from me simply ignoring his demands. I’ve only just met him, and I can already tell that he’s no good at controlling his emotions.

I sighed with disappointment, “Mary, you chose a horrible person to try and test me. This man can’t even keep his anger under control.”

Mary’s face was puzzled, her eyes darting back and forth between the man and I. At last, she admitted, “Fine. You caught me.”

She didn’t see me the entire time; I managed to hide behind one of the columns in the parking lot. I got so close, so close to confronting her about this enticing act she’s been putting on, but I had to stop from revealing myself.

“Thanks for picking me up today, baby.”

“Anytime.”

Mary was huddled in the arms of a man, kissing up on his chin with her arms wrapped around him. Surely this was a test of my mettle, of my unwavering fortitude. I couldn’t help but to chuckle.

Mary looked around the lot, “Did you hear something?”

100 Word Story – Grades (Part Two)

Simmonds seemed to pick up the pace as she headed for the parking lot; it looked like she was in a rush to leave the campus grounds.

I could relate to that, though. The college was always crowed with people going back and forth between rooms across the various floors, large gatherings happening outside in the lawn and grass areas—the campus was just full of people. Perhaps Simmonds didn’t like being around people.

My heart began to flutter at the thought of Simmonds getting nervous around other people, “Don’t worry, my sweet, sweet Mary. I’ll protect you from everybody.”

“For the rest of the semester you shall be focusing on creating your history thesis paper on which historical figure had the smallest impact on globalization. You have three months to research, draft, and edit before you submit your final paper, which you can turn in any time.”

Professor Simmonds announced the conclusion of class for the day and collected her things. The rest of us—the students—followed behind and gathered our things and began to leave.

As for me, I sat down a bit longer, carefully watching her from behind.

I need you to be mine, all mine.

100 Word Story – One-Sided Desire (Finale)

I collected a small pile of clothing and undergarments in my suitcase, and headed for the front door. With a heavy heart, I sighed, “It’s for the best.”

As I turned around to walk down the hallway, I saw Stella running down the steps, trying to chase me down. She was in a small state of panic, almost hysterical, “Amelie, wait. Please, don’t leave.”

My heart was still tied down to a false romance, but I had to force myself to break away. “Silence. You’ve had your time trying to keep me, and you sullied it.”

“S’il vous plaît…”

“Non…”

Stella barely made contact with me throughout the night, only saying words when we were at the dinner table.

“This lacks salt, pass the shaker.” “The steak is extra dry, no moisture whatsoever.”

I offered to make her another but she simply grunted and walked away from the table; that would be the last time we were in the same room. When it came time to sleep, I knocked on our bedroom door, asking if it was okay for me to enter.

“Sleep on the couch tonight,” she answered.

I wanted to believe that she cared, even just a bit.
