Daily 100-Word Story #7: The Fate of the Zip

“Despite my fear of heights, I climbed the tower of stairs to reach the platform, over seven feet in the air.”

“I was in no rush to take my turn. If no one notices, I could just climb back down those stairs, instead of that zip wire.”

My turn arrived, “What? No! This zip has stopped midway down the wire. I’m stuck in mid-air. Why are my teammates on the ground crying? They must see my blue lips because this wire around my neck is blocking my ability to breath! Am I going to die on this zip? I’m out!”

Daily 100-Word Story #6: Daddy’s Little Girl

Empathy prompted Suzanna to try to mend their broken past.

Every visit was met with his cruel, withdrawn, and cynical behavior.

When he demanded Suzanna to leave, requesting time with a random visitor,

Suzanna hesitated. His second request, “You’re still my little girl, so I get to tell you what to do.”

She thought silently, “Actually, I was never your little girl, Dad, otherwise you wouldn’t have treated me the way you have my entire life.”

Suzana took one last glance at her father, upon leaving, “This is the last time you’ll get to reject my love!” She never returned.

Daily 100-Word Story #5: Not So Quiet Leader

John smiled while accepting the company award, “The Quiet Leader” at our annual meeting.

He received a standing ovation.

A microphone was passed around, “Share a toast to our incredible leader!”

The microphone landed in my hands. John’s smile turned upside down, his face deep red.

The room became quiet, as I positioned myself to speak.

My thoughts rushed through my mind, “Dare I share that John was not such a quiet leader in the mandatory meeting he requested at the end of business hours, choosing to perform very harmful acts behind his locked office door! Will they believe me?”

Daily 100-Word Story #4: The Ring

“Who does that ring belong to?” Ms. Hopperwitz asked repeatedly.

Jason held the diamond ring, hanging from his necklace, tightly.

Jason’s father arrived, he held his tearful son.

Principal Sandstone began, “We believe that Jason has stolen a valuable ring!”

Jason’s father touched his son’s hand before standing. He spoke sternly, “What evidence have you to support such false allegations?”

“His refusal to answer! He must be guilty!”

“Maybe fear? Question – Is there a rule against bringing a ring to school?  The fact is, Jason is the owner! His mother handed him this valuable ring two minutes before she died!”

Daily 100-Word Story # 3: Never Trust A Rose

“Who let him in here?” Elizabeth asked Nurse Jenkins as Jacob stood over her, displaying false charm.

“He said that he was your husband!” Nurse Jenkins said shakily.

“Call security right now, he’s hiding something behind his back!” Elizabeth demanded.

Security arrived in Room 218, “What seems to be the problem?”

Jacob reached his arm around and displayed a dozen pink roses. Jacob smiled while handing them to Elizabeth.

Security left the room. Nurse Jenkins returned to her desk.  Less than two minutes later, while laughing with her co-workers, the loud alarm sounded.  The nursing staff returned to Room 218, “Code Blue!”

“Who’s Kasey?” Alyssa screamed while holding the pink envelope with hand-drawn flowers, delivered in the mail, with the same prestigious Upper Arlington address as theirs, “You know all that I’ve been through! You promised, no secrets!”

Jason moved towards Alyssa’s crying face, taking her hand, “I planned to tell you before the wedding, Hon.”

Alyssa snatched her hand away, “The wedding is in six months! We discussed deal-breakers…remember, No secret marriages! No secret children!”

Jason’s voice trembled, “I’m not married…I’m…widowed. Two years ago. I never thought I’d find love again, until you.”

Alyssa spoke softly, “I want to meet Kasey!”
