Cold Lunch

She’d seen him, of course. Heard his hearty laugh from halfway across the room. She could see his table fairly well, though she fought not to stare, to draw his attention.

His date – and she was pretty sure it was a date – seemed young. Younger than her. She fiddled with her red-hair. Flirtatiously. So much for his not liking red-hair. The girl – and she was a girl, make no mistake – had that lithe, runner’s physique. So different than her own “curvaceousness”, which he’d claimed excited him.

Did she care? What he did or who he saw clearly didn’t matter to her.

  1. Favorite one yet, Steve. I just figured out why you’re so good at this, you fit a whole chapter’s worth of descriptiveness into 100 words. I don’t even know how you did that.

    • homefront — thanks for coming by. I think they’re a fun (and easy) creativity exercise. The word count aspect really makes you examine every sentence.
