In honor of Halloween, I have written two 100-word sections. Enjoy.
Jim Reaper didn’t want to go to the party, but his friends all said he needed to pick up somebody. The last time he went to a party they used him as a coat rack. Before he got inside Jim saw right through a beautiful girl.
“Hi, I’m Jim Reaper.” Jim hoped his rattling bones didn’t show how nervous he was.
“I’m Dee, Dee Ceased,” she said looking down at her bony hands.
“Do you like the party?”
“No, there is no body to dance with,” Dee said.
“Dance with me?” Jim asked as his bony hand touched hers.
Jim looked at Dee’s blank expression as a slow song started.
“Let’s sit this one out,” Jim said, pointing to a table.
“Great.” Dee followed, thinking dancing with Jim was fun.
“My favorite band is The Grateful Dead,” Jim said, sitting next to her.
“Oh, I like them. Them, and Bone Jovi.”
Jim’s friend Mumford stopped in front of them.
“Hey, you guys want a drink?”
“Sure,” Jim responded. “We’ll have two beers and a mop chaser.”
Dee laughed and moved closer, “I like you, Jim.”
Jim draped his arm over Dee’s scrawny shoulder and pulled her close.
Keep on writing.
