Random Scene #1….
What Is It? You Seem Stressed
The following is one of those scenes [from no particular work of fiction] that I wrote for ‘practice’.
This is a completely random scene. If you would like to read it and use it as a prompt or inspiration for your own writing then feel free to do so. Thanks.
“What is it? You seem stressed,” he says to me.
“Oh, it’s nothing.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.” But you’re not.
“No really, I’m a great person to talk to when you need to unload.”
“Oh, that’s okay. I just remembered I have to be somewhere.”
No you’re not a great person to talk to. You’re a blabbermouth. You’re one of those people who thinks other people will just listen to what you say and not watch what you do.
“Where you headed?”
“My therapist.” He won’t get that.
“Well hey, I’m headed downtown I can give you a lift.”
“That’s okay. I’d rather take the bus.” Now I’m just being rude.
“If you change your mind you know you can give me a call anytime.”
“Okay.” Yeah, I’m sure your wife would like that.
