Aheila does a weekly drabble day on her blog. She selects a theme and writes a drabble (a short story of exactly 100 words) and we are invited to write one of our own using the same theme word (plus or minus five words), post it on our blog then link to it in her comments.
Today’s theme is Guest and there are extra points if we “avoid the unwanted guest twist”. In my story, the guest is most definitely wanted, perhaps a little too much. Mine’s EXACTLY 100 words.
Sarah and I hid in the dumpster outside the studios, but the cramped space and smell had begun to take their toll. I had at least six mosquito bites too.
“You think he’ll like our Stonehenge model?” Sarah asked, a hint of doubt in her voice.
“Of course he will. It’s exactly the right size for his mantel, six inches.”
“What if he’s with his wife?”
“All the better. She’s cool.” Despite what I told Sarah, I hoped he’d be alone.
“Here he comes!”
We both burst from the dumpster and yelled, “Christopher Guest! Mr. Guest! We’re your biggest fans!”
