Lonely (150)


Aligning the sights on the rifle was as natural as putting on her makeup. Allison was aware that she had one shot at the target, missing meant losing everything.

The thought made her smile; her existence was already void of meaning. Today she would correct it, the cause would be eliminated. Richard had taken everything she cared about, now she would take his life from him. The reason he lived was now a tall brunette with curves to challenge a racer, she had to be eliminated.

Richard would live an existence as lonely as Allison’s had been since he took the one person she loved most from her.


The word is lonely, this post is part of the FTP over at M3. The limit was 150 words, this post comes in at 108 words.
What did Richard take from Allison? Is the tall brunette the target of the rifle? Why does Allison only have a single shot?

Remembering

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
