The End

They did, to a distant thud that shook the ground. They all knew what it meant, and nobody wanted to talk about it. One by one they got up and using bottled water, toothpaste and their fingers, washed up the best they could. After a meager breakfast of beans and tortillas, they started talking about...

The End

The house was empty. Jimmy dived into the rubble yelling, “Mom -- Mom, are you here?” -- Over and over again. Sarah set Becky down well out of the way. “What’s your Mom’s name?” “Josephina -- Josie.” “Josie! Can you hear me? Josie!” Sarah walked through the rubble as Jimmy moved the big pieces...

The End

(Writer's note: I deleted a little bit of the ending in the last part I wrote; I decided to let them get down the stairs after all. A woman's writer's perogative...yada, yada, yada...sorry.) Jimmy shrugged, and grabbing her hand pulled open the door to the stairwell. They were lucky. Enough of the... Sign in to see full entry.

She got bizarre looks thrown her way as she started laughing; she was remembering her orientation to this building and the matronly woman with the booming voice: “In case of an emergency, never...

The End

It didn’t come from nuclear war, or some super bug, not by devastating changes brought on by global warming, no, not even by an invasion from Mars ala “War of the Worlds.” We few stragglers, those of us who had survived so far, sat and looked at the devastation.

The next day, at lunch, Jill called the paranormal society that she had seen downtown. She explained her situation and they agreed to come to her place Friday night. The next few nights were more of the same. Jill would get comfortable, and then -- “Moooove!” He kept bugging her at night too, by... Sign in to see full entry.

She started to get up then changed her mind; “No, I’m going to eat my dinner!” She took another bite, looking around, expecting to be picked up again. After a minute and all was quiet, she decided it had gone away. She finished her meal and got up to wash her dishes. “Moooove!” “I am!” She stood at... Sign in to see full entry.

Jill pulled Betty away from the others at lunch. Their friendship went back to childhood and if anyone would believe her, Betty would. Betty listened, without interrupting, as Jill had asked her to. Frowning, she was thinking that Jill had let all those books she read get to her; she loved all that... Sign in to see full entry.
