    The rain fell down in the background.
    “Let’s do it again, people!” The director shouted.
    “Take 14” someone said and another girl laughed while tripping into line.
    “You know,” The director said, “This montage would have been a lot faster if you hadn’t all gone out for lunch.”

    Is that really how you spell pretzel?
    It looks funny. Mind you, us dyslexics can’t spell much of anything.

    Pretzels were originally made as a Christian symbol. The arms are crossed in prayer and the three holes represent father son and holy spirit.

    The cat crept slowly along the driveway and out into the field. She didn’t know that her orange patchy fur stood out like a polar bear on asphalt. It didn’t matter though, as long as she had a food dish at home the birds that got away were just a game.

    Simba looked across the kingdom that he had once expected to be his. “What happened?”
    The hienas took over after you left.” Nala told him.
    His sad gaze turned into a look of determination as he realized what he needed to do.

    There they were. In the middle of a field. Clean, but not as if they’d been gnawed on. Wow. After a moment he took off his jacket and wrapped them up. A whole deer. How often do you find that?

    She looked down the long isle. On either side it was lined with beauty products, or “beauty” products, as her dad would tell her. She smiled to herself and pushed her cart forward, thinking of the river and the mountains and the sweet smell of sunshine.

    She slid back the deadbolt and the door creaked open. Inside the room was a lot of straw and a dog and, yes it was, a little boy.
    “Jimmie?” she asked.
    The boy did not stir and she tentatively crouched down to tap his foot.

    She stopped outside the theater and looked at the posters advertising the newest releases. One looked good but she hadn’t seen the trailer. She supposed it didn’t matter though, movies weren’t really her thing. She took a deep breath and stepped inside.

    The truck hit a bump causing the passengers to hit the ceiling.
    “Whoa! That was awesome!” One shouted from the backseat that was piled high with boxes, now toppled over.
    Though the truck seemed lighter not one noticed they were missing something.

    She stood up, hitting her head again on the low ceiling. She tripped out the door and stood next to her temporary home. This was fun. Living in the woods. No running water. Lots of fun. Right?

  • Sarah commented on the post, intersection 8 years, 4 months ago

    She stopped at the corner and waited for the cars to stop. Behind her, someone else was also waiting, but apparently not patient enough. He stepped out in between the cars, but the space was not enough. A red Chevy swerved to miss him and rickashayed off another vehicle. The pileup stopped traffic but the […]

  • Sarah commented on the post, foreign 8 years, 4 months ago

    The boat pulled up to the dock and he watched eagerly for the woman who had been sending the letters to step out. Now he would no longer be alone in a foreign country. They would be together. They went to the city hall and got married right away and later they went out for […]

  • Sarah commented on the post, gadget 8 years, 4 months ago

    He pulled out a wad of metal from his pocket and started to transform it while she talked. I wasn’t listening to her anymore, too mesmerized by the gadget he was creating. Before I could ask what it was and how he was going to use it he’d put it away and the girl was […]

    See? He said, strumming another chord for her, showing off. That’s A minor.
    How do you remember all those?
    It’s easy, he answered. He smiled, because he was cool, and because most importantly, she thought he was cool.

    The windows glinted in the light. Barely able to be seen through, the little boys ducked their heads to see past their reflections to view the newest shipment of guitars. Bradson. Homemade. They were every musician’s dream.

    The man laughed again causing the girl to recoil a little. What’s the matter? He asked, Am I too old for you? She shook her head unconvincingly and he turned to pick up the bottle on the porch next to him. That’s ok, he says. I’m too old for me too.

  • Sarah commented on the post, gasoline 8 years, 5 months ago

    The car stops for a moment at the station and a man jumps out and runs in to appease the appetite of his cowish wife. It isn’t her fault, and he expects it will go away soon, but a car trip probably wasn’t a good idea anyway, too late now. He returns with three different […]

  • Sarah commented on the post, obsolete 8 years, 5 months ago

    Oh, we’re still on this word. I’ve done it before. In fact, thinking about it I could say is obsolete, out of date, or whatnot. Oh well, I guess I’ll try again later. When’s midnight on this website anyway?

  • Sarah commented on the post, obsolete 8 years, 5 months ago

    The librarian pulls the last book down from the shelf and places it gently on the cart. In a moment she has crossed the unusually empty room and entered the elevator. Now they will use the library for something else she thinks sadly. The books retire to the basement. If only it wasn’t for those […]

    The last black dot slides down four spaces and clicks into place. I got it! The four year old grins to herself as her mother applauds quietly. Wow, honey. Good job. Look at that.
