Sean knew he shouldn’t keep the telly open well past bedtime But he couldn’t help it. He also did not regret it.

“That stupid movie again?” his brother grumbled under a clump of moss.

“Shut up,’ he hissed back, not blinking. Never taking his eyes off the scene.

Even with the movie muted, the now familiar cacophony of human screams filled Sean’s head as the windy funnel took the school bus off the road and threw it like a weightless rock to the sea.

It was the biggest shark-fest in movie history.

And Sean loved every bloody second of it.

Weekend Writing Prompt #2 – Replace

prompt 127

spare parts make a whole
the tiniest gaps can deny completeness
a puzzle is never done with one piece missing
just as love will never be real when one heart is aching

an ache in the heart from a love that is never complete
as an entire wholeness shatters from a single bad fit
replace a piece in a puzzle and it starts aching
where gaps begin, spare logic goes missing

a piece completes a whole
simple love fits an aching gap
as tiny hearts spare the biggest love

The intruders were young, barely teenagers.

They were sprawled on the carpet, watching cartoons while eating his cake.

He’d tell them to leave, if he weren’t too worried about upsetting Sally again.

Sally hated it when he treated her guests unkindly.

Even when they were rude and were eating his cake!

He had been hoping to dig into that sugary treat tonight. He’d even practiced his fridge opening technique, too—!

“Dad!” Sally called out. “Your stupid old dog’s home! I think he wants to eat my friends!”

They laughed.

But if they weren’t too skinny, he’d seriously be considering it.
