Welcome to the Spot Writers. The prompt for February is to use the following in a story: “How could she (or he) do a thing like that?” (Inspiration came to Cathy as a result of a recent birth; no, not mine!)
This week’s flash fiction comes to you from Cathy MacKenzie. Check out her new Facebook page OUT OF THE CAVE (and the call for submissions for a horror anthology for teens).
Nathan, rubbing his forehead, sways to and fro. “How could she do a thing like that?”
“I don’t know. Why in the world would she do that?” His problems aren’t my problems, so I don’t know why he’s asking me.
“You think I’m terrible, don’t you?”
“Not at all.” I don’t usually lie.
“But I don’t understand.”
“What don’t you understand?”
The colour of his face alternates with blotches of red and white. “I…I don’t understand.”
“I don’t understand why you don’t understand.” I sigh at his silence. “What’s not to understand? Pretty clear to me. You penetrated, you enjoyed the moment, and now there’s a consequence.”
At least I assumed he enjoyed himself.
