Thursday’s News

April 11, 2019

Written for GirlieOnTheEdge’s Six Sentence Stories
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word – CONTEST


The Haunted Wordsmith’s Story Starter Challenge. (I think I cheated a little on this one?)
Use the provided sentence somewhere in your post. It can be a starting sentence, closing sentence, anything you choose. Read it and see where the sentence takes you. Today’s sentence: “It’s what!”


Thursday’s News

I heard Julie pull the Firebird into the driveway and I started counting the 73 seconds it would take for her to get out of the car, walk up the driveway, walk into the house, drop her purse on the dining room table, toss the keys in the green bowl and walk into the den where she’d find me laying on the couch watching TV. Yeah, I’m compulsive that way.

“Well, was I right?” I asked.

“Hey, it’s not a contest, you know.”

“So that’s a yes or a no or — you look a little funny — it’s what?”

“It’s not a ‘what’, it’s a girl.”

    I don’t think that was the news he was expecting to hear.

    At first I was wondering if your SSS was going to lead us to a crime scene. Boy was I surprised! A little bit of suspense leading us to what will become a little bundle of joy.
