In A Blink Of An Eye Short Story

Decent Essays
In a Blink of an Eye It was early afternoon, I was on my way home from work. I hate my job and life. I tend to sulk and complain too much. I wonder what they’re listening to… It’s been a long day I kind of want to be home now, though I have something or someone to look forward to… I haven’t been feeling myself lately. Especially after that call from my sister with the news. My tea warms up too quickly thanks to this weather. It feels like tundra out there. I’ve been feeling tired a lot recently... I could really use one right now. I hope there’s one still open near by. I could use one… Those leaves look like scary clowns once the light begins fading.. Did I ever have a childhood fear of clowns.. I can’t recall. My job insurance won’t cover the entire cost of a root canal. Now I’m forced to pay out of pocket. This sucks. One stops left until… and 10 more to go. I don’t want to see you. I try as best as I can to avoid you. I hate running into you...Your presence agitates me. I hope you don’t get on. But she did. “Hey! Mind if I sit here?’’ “No..Not at all” “How’ve you been?” “ I’ve been good” “Oh, that’s good.” “Yeah…” “I miss you Val.-- Guess what! I have to tell you something.” “Woa-what?” “I’m getting married” “Really--Wow?” “I’m so in love with life right now” “That’s really good” “ I know, I’m so happy--But I don’t know how I’m going to get everything done in time for the wedding. I have work, family, and the volunteer work.”
