120 Entries for “stalling”

  1. Everyone keeps stalling.
    I don’t know for what.
    They have a secret, I know it.
    They’re just hiding it from me.
    I don’t know what they are thinking.
    I hate surprises.

    They know that. They all know that.
    Why would they do such a thing?
    But then again, maybe it’s not them stalling.
    Maybe, it’s me.

    The inevitable.
    I should just get it over with.
    SURPRISE!

    Damn it.

  2. A bit more time. I’m willing my fingers to move, but they’re stuck… It’s always situations like this when I freeze up… in reality, never in the simulations… I just need a bit more time… but the timer on this stupid bomb won’t stop ticking away… so is it the red wire or the green one…?

  27. The man was stalling. He had to make his choice now. Kill himself, or kill the world. What should he do? Live the rest of his life as a mere assistant to the grievous man who was holding the imaginary knife in front of him? Or jump of the building waiting for serendipity. The man was stalling.

    The man across from him was stalling too, he was locked inside himself. He was trying to keep himself out. The man could only chose everyone’s fate at this point.

    The two men were only prolonging the inevitable.

  31. The boy was stalling when he heard that he was to take a bath. He was a very stinky kid who hated baths. However, for all his stalling the boy had to take a bath and wash himself very well with lemon and lavender soap. Then after he got out of the bath, he tried stalling to get out of doing his homework for English class. The stalling technique he used got him nowhere again so he had to do his English homework, regretfully. He tried stalling again so he wouldn’t get in trouble for breaking his mother’s precious Japanese vase while he was throwing a tantrum about his English homework. He however, did not stall when it was time for dessert. He absolutely loved dessert time and for dessert time, he got a large slice of chocolate brownie cake which was his favorite.

  34. 10 minutes. I nervously glance at the clock, hoping to stall for more time. I’m being forced out onto
    the roof. Nine minutes. “Not yet.” I yell forcefully, hoping for more time as I rush down the stairs, back onto the ground into the rushing street, trying to find my friend. Eight minutes. I see him. I know it’s him because of his piercing eyes, black as the night. Seven minutes. I grab his shoulder as his eyes lock with mine, pulling him into a tight embrace. “I’m sorry.” I whisper, and he’s gone from sight. Six minutes. I yell an apology at the top of my lungs, as everyone turns to stare. Four minutes. I sob into my hands, realizing my mistake. I must compose myself. I walk back to the top of the building and yell, “Stop!” I am told to quit stalling, I had made a commitment. One minute. I glance down at the world. Thirty seconds. Twenty, ten, five, and the world is on fire.

  38. I always feel like I’m stalling for some reason or another, even if there IS NO REASON. Sometimes this fact surprises me as a person. Some days, when I know I have time to complete something, I just sit and wait, knowing that it will always be there tomorrow for me to do. Stalling is the bane of my existence!

    “Answer, miss.”
