I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m going to try for a series of drabbles (precisely 100-word scenes) that will flow together featuring the characters from my Adventures with Harrison and Mason flash fiction story scenes.
May 30, 2017 — Just Sick of It
(Mason’s 3rd-person POV)
Mason settled into his seat on the airplane, turned to Gramps, and patted his hand. “So what made you finally decide to accept my offer?”
“Eh.” Gramps shrugged. “I guess I was just sick of it.”
“It?” Mason quirked an eyebrow.
“Being the last man standing. All my friends have died off or been moved into nursing homes.”
Mason shivered as a chill flickered through him. “I’m so sorry.”
“Don’t be.” Gramps winked and squeezed his hand. “It’s better than the alternative, right? And I’ve still got my wits and my health, and now I have you, Harrison, and Jaxon.”
To be continued tomorrow using ‘I almost forgot.’
All the drabbles in this series using the May, 2017 prompts can be found here (note: to read them in order, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the category list and read up from there).
