The Things We Say (Six sentence story)

“If you leave don’t come back.”

“Hey, relax, it’s not you, I just need to go for a drive, clear my head, OK?”

“Screw your head, you leave then don’t have to come back, I don’t want you to come back.”

The guy blew right through the light at Jackson. I never saw him, never had a chance to break or swerve or tell Chrissy I loved her, and the last anyone saw of me was an undertaker who told Chrissy the casket should remain closed.

I guess the moral of the whole thing is to be careful what you ask for.

    Hey A story is at its most interesting when the narrator is already deceased.

      It’s easy to say things and sometimes not so easy to take them back 😦

    This happens in real life. Ask Rose Kennedy. Wait, you can’t, she’s dead. Great six. Makes us realize we should think about what we say more often.

    Oh wow, this was a great “6”–and thank you for reminding me of the blogger who hosts the prompt, as it’s one of my favorites…but I didn’t have it bookmarked 🙂

    Great SSS! Sad to hear these kind of stories, because unfortunately there are some who have such regrets.

    Never leave with angry words, there will come a day you regret it. Well told!

    Oh, man, what a finish! Great Six. Wasn’t expecting that ending 😀
