The Slowest Fourth Ever

[Author’s Note: I’m sorry this is so late. I originally wanted to post this on the Fourth of July, but life hit me in the face with a bag of bricks. Still, better late than never.]


National holidays are a time that people use in order to enjoy a simple day off from work. Some holidays tend to get more wild than others. Starting with New Years, and ending with Christmas, people will use whatever holiday they can get. But unfortunately, not every has that same luxury. I, for one, am one of those people who must suffer while others can relax.

As I woke up, grabbing my phone and checking the date, I couldn’t help but shake my head in disappointment. Even being half awake, I already knew that my shift today would be nothing but a waste of time. Most people would want to get paid to do nothing all day.

But when your job is such in a bad position, being paid to do nothing becomes extremely annoying.

“Why the fuck am I here?”

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…
