Moral Mondays where morals & fables go 21st century.
Nortina posts a moral on Sunday evenings and invites you to wrap 100 words around the concept. It’s challenging, and fun. If you haven’t tried this microfiction challenge, I highly recommend you visit Moral Mondays for the whole scoop.
This week’s “moral,” is one of Nortina’s own: “When your blood is boiling, spend an evening in the Cooler.”
Love working the late shift because HE comes in. Meltingly lop-sided grin. Amethyst eyes with fireworks. Friendly, flirty.
“Just ask me,” I constantly try mind-melding with him. “Coffee.” “Movie.” “Walk.”
Then, one night he comes in with a clinger. I mean she is all over him, looking daggers at me. She wants some special drink. Sounding helpful, I suggest “Go look in the storage cooler.” In she goes; I lock the door.
He thanks me, explaining “An old psycho girlfriend” then (finally asks), “Hey, what are you doing after your shift?” By then, her lust and blood-lust will probably be cooled down.
