“Lookin for Some Happiness”. It’s a 6.

Today’s 6 is a continuation from last week’s Six Sentence Stories sampling from my w-i-p, Annaliese’s Dream. Last we knew, Annaliese found out the death of her fiancé was not a fatal accident but in fact, murder…

It was 4 am, a shot glass lay overturned on the coffee table, Patrón bottle nearby, the ashtray filled with cigarettes. I don’t smoke.

I hadn’t been sleeping well since Mr. White and Mr. Orange paid me a visit, sharing with me their dossier on my late fiancé, surefire fodder for the “surreal” file.

Mr. White and Mr. Orange – nostalgia opened the door of the yellow top, and I crawled in, a willing passenger, meter running double time.

Ian and I were huge Tarantino fans long before we met, it was one of those “hey, you too?!”, that and the way we annotated life with music and film references.

We shared wavelength, consciousness, “brainwave synchronicity” is what neuro-scientists now call it, the new-fangled, novel term to describe soul mates.

    Good stuff. A novel, six sentences at a time. I love it.

      Thank you, Paul. The SSS was exactly what I needed to get a jumpstart😀

      The first time I read this I did so through my reader, and didn’t see your Reservoir Dogs Photo! Duh!!

        Actually, it’s a music vid from the film. Thought it an “appropriate” soundtrack 😀

    I like Paul’s comment, a novel, Six Sentences at a time. A serial for the modern hypo-patient reader!

      One might think it fun and less intimidating that way….not, lol. Seeing as I’ve been FBTSOMP (flying by the seat of my pants) these last couple of weeks, I’ve become aware of the writing challenges when it comes to time and place. And tense!
      Yes, surely for the hypo-patient reader 😀

    I’m always impressed with those who can take weekly prompts and not only make them stand-alone stories, but weave those stories together from week to week!

      Imo, a huge challenge – making them stand alone stories. Yet, I see the attraction in the flash fiction/serial story format. It’s kind of fun 😀
