Hi There..... Do you like short stories?
I sure hope so..... Because I really can't help myself..... Weird things happen to me sometimes..... I am not always in full control..... There is some outer source that drives me from time to time..... It is called..... The brain 😂
My story is somewhat based on the most recent developments here in Belgium..... We are having our second Corona wave and they have strengthened the rules..... No more fun shopping..... You are supposed to go shop on your own and the maximum time is half an hour..... I was talking about it to my physiotherapist when my mind started spinning..... And this is the result 😁
Murderer - Haven't you learned by now - short story by Seadbeady 😍
Seadbeady had been restless all morning..... She just needed to go out.
'Mom'..... 'Yes Darling'..... 'I really need to go. I just can't take it any longer. I am fed up with this lockdown. If I don't get out today I swear my head is gonna explode'..... 'Come on dear, you know it's dangerous out there'..... 'I know mom but I'm bored stiff. I am going and that's final'
She took her bike out and put on her mask, and off she went to the center.....Halfway she had to stop to get the damp of her glasses
'Darn'..... She said..... 'I forgot to put on the shaving cream'
The shaving cream would have kept her glasses from fogging up while wearing a mask..... She left her bike in the cycle parking and hurried to the Shopping Mall..... Seadbeady didn't lose time window shopping..... She went straight to her favorite store..... It shocked her that some elderly people were chatting in the middle of her path..... They were not wearing their masks properly..... She wanted to avoid coming too close to them
'Really'..... She thought..... 'Murderer - Haven't you learned by now'
But she didn't let it get to her..... She was determined to get herself that new outfit she needed..... So she took a basket and a timer and popped into the shop..... There were so many cute outfits in this new collection that she completely lost track of time..... She finally decided to go and fit some things
'Ok'..... She thought..... 'First I am gonna try on this gorgeous pink T-shirt and if I am lucky it will be a perfect match to this white skirt'
She had been so preoccupied that at first, she hadn't even noticed her timer going off..... It made an unbearable sound
'Oh My God'..... 'No'..... 'Not now'..... 'I haven't even tried on my skirt'
She promptly put everything back in her basket and rushed out of the fitting booth..... As she looked up she noticed all the people around eyeballing her
'Did she take up all her time'..... She overheard an old lady asking her husband..... 'I think so'..... He replied..... 'The Youth of today'..... 'Murderer - Haven't you learned by now'
The end 😀
