“I never thought this day would end. I’m so happy you’re with me tonight.” Sandy took off her jewellery and stretched her petite body. She wiped off her makeup telling him about the handsome couple she had met in the morning.
He was used to her nightly rituals and waited patiently on the bed.
After a quick shower she snuggled upto him under the quilts.
“Water.. alarm.. phone..” She checked everything was in its place before switching off the lights.
“Good night my sweetheart.” She said with a kiss.
The plastic buttons on the stuffed dog’s face stared back unflinching.
She had been given 10 days. 10 days to get all her affairs in order and say her goodbyes. She didn’t want to leave anything unfinished, becoming a ghost scared her more than dying.
They had refused to believe her and mocked her when she told them about the prophecy. It wasn’t her fault she didn’t have 20 friends.
On the 10th day she called her sister as her time drew nearer. The stars twinkled till the morning sun brightened the horizon.
“I told you it wasn’t so!” Her sister said as she opened her inbox and deleted the email.
Chocolate cake was her favorite. The only problem was that she never knew when to stop. Especially when the cake invited her saying, “Eat Me”. She had meant to ‘just taste’ the icing and had ended up with a huge slice on the plate. The seams of her dress threatened to burst as she hurriedly drank from the bottle. She felt relieved almost instantly.
Oh’oh.. She’d overdone it again. Alice stepped out of her oversized shoes and picked up a cake crumb. There were only a few drops left in the bottle. She needed to get it right this time.
