LEAVING CITY LIGHTS

It’s Friday and time for another story for Friday Fictioneers.  We like to tell our stories in 100 words or so.  We are hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple.  You can join in the fun if you are so inclined.  It’s very therapeutic for letting off steam.  Here is my story according to the photo prompt below.

He turned his back to the city.  Straightening his head and shoulders, he zipped up his jacket.  There!  He was done.

He had enough of the city lights.  Enough of the glaring and angry eyes. Who did they think they were anyways?  Treated him like shit.  Kicked and spat on.  Worse than a dog.  Thought he hadn’t noticed.  Well, he HAD.

Now it was their turn.  See how they like that.  He chuckled under his breath.  He turned the key in the ignition and drove off into the desert. Behind him angry eyes exploded into shards of glass.  Payback time.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

      He did. 😦 I usually don’t write this way but in a world going crazy…why not see how the opposite feels. I’m not sure if I got the emotions right.
