Falling

by on September 14, 2013

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, which was to include an apostrophe: “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.”  I found myself returning to the story in last weekend’s prompt. Enjoy!

There were things Constance didn’t like. Carrots. Soccer. Ben, her loathsome squid ex-boyfriend. But she just hated gravity. “Darn you, gravity!” she screamed, plummeting towards the treasure chamber floor. “Darn you to heck!”

  1. Treasure chamber intrigues me. Want more of the story…

    • I’m glad it’s intriguing! I do plan to do more of the story, as it happens…:)

  2. This is funny.. I hope it was meant that way.. loathsome squid ex-boyfriend.. that’s imaginative! At least she’s falling to a ‘treasure chamber.’ What delights might await? If she doesn’t break anything. I like it. 🙂

    • It definitely was meant to be funny, so I’m happy it worked out that way. 🙂

  3. Haha! I can see why she would hate gravity while in a free fall 🙂

  4. Oh gosh, I want to know how she got to this point! I can totally understand her despising gravity right now, though. 🙂

    • I think the immediate cause was her tether snapping. As to her backstory, I haven’t the slightest idea yet. 😛

  5. Oh, I feel the same way. Gravity makes me drop things.

    Fun take on the prompt!

    best,

  9. Gravity is just the worst thing. The absolute worst.
    This is funny! Thank you for linking up!
