Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Story: Calling Charlie


Hello Dear Readers!   It’s Wedfrinesday again.  Where writers are challenged to stretch their synapses in the Making-Stuff-Up Hemisphere of the brain every Friday by writing a 100-word story from a picture prompt posted on Wednesday by Rochell Wisoff-Fields!

I know it sounds confusing the way I’m explaining it. But that’s because while I was stretching my synapses, I got a cramp . . . 

Just go here if you want to join in:  Rochelle Wisoff-Fields Addicted to Purple Blog  it’s fun!  (Be sure to hit the refresh button for the latest picture prompt.)

Friday Ficitoneers

Calling Charlie

When Sally saw the condition of the phone, her heart — which was located almost in the middle of her chest — (but too far to the left for her boyfriend, Charlie’s liking) — sank.

Sally’s eyes welled up with tears nearly simultaneously-; the right welling faster than the left (something Charlie abhorred).   Sally grabbed the receiver with her right-hand while wiping tears away with her left and dialed Charlie’s number with her nose — located basically in the middle (but off centered enough to be unattractive Charlie thought) of Sally’s face.

When Charley didn’t answer, it was just as well.

  1. Okay, this line sold it for me: Sally’s eyes welled up with tears nearly simultaneously-; the right welling faster than the left (something Charlie abhorred). Wonderfully written!

    • I agree! I hate it when my synapses cramp! And I agree to forget about Charlie, who obviously can’t appreciate her uniqueness. This was my favorite line: “but too far to the left for her boyfriend, Charlie’s liking”.

      Hope you’re having a goofy Thursday!

  2. Was her heart off-center to her left or his? In which case, it would be to his right. Now I’m giving myself synapses cramps.

    In either case, this story was just far enough off-center for me to click the “Like” button.

    • Ah thanks Russell. I don’t know if it was her left or his left, Is there a mirror involved in that anywhere? Please tell me no. I’ll just hit the like button too (it’s the one on the right, right?)

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
