Dariel's Flasher Friday Stop: "Obsessed"




Happy Friday! This pic is just too story-worthy to pass up. Once again, my Flasher Friday friends and I join to offer our various takes on one inspirational picture  in 100 words. When you're finished here, take a look at theirs as well. You won't be disappointed :-) Enjoy!

Obsessed

A door closing. The snick as he locks it.

Oh, my God what if he sees me?

What the hell am I doing here?

I thought he worked tonight, sure I saw it when I checked his schedule.

Just wanted, no, needed to see what his place looked like, imagine myself in it, maybe having dinner or…

His footsteps are getting closer, and now here I am hiding in his damn closet like I belong in a mental ward.

Please don’t open the closet.

But I know he will. His place is neat, everything in place.

He slides the closet door open and our eyes meet.


Wouldn't you just love to know what happens next? Might have to revisit this one in a short story :-) Mia Darien and Tricia Schneider are hosting me today, so please stop by and give them both a holler.
You'll see the names of my other hosts at the top of the right sidebar under the animated pic.

Oh, how creepy! I love the anxiety and the obsession. It is no less uncomfortable for her stalking than it would be for him. Fantastic.

I friggin' LOVE this flash. What a wonderful mind you have, so...so...creative and inventive. So, okay. I am tense and anxious and you did that is a mere 100 words just eavesdropping on private thoughts. Funny, even in her anxious effort to hide, because she really means no harm, she still notices that he is neat. I love your work. xo
