Microfction: 100

For Sacha Black’s writing prompt—52 words exactly on the theme, 100.


I wait to hear the door close, the sound of footsteps outside, moving away purposefully. Always the same, no matter what the situation. Not one to hesitate or change your mind. Ringing loud at first, they fade. I count slowly. When I reach a hundred I will stop. Then I will cry.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
