Well, it’s the weekend, and I wrote another little microstory. Did I use the prompt to add to the “infinitely growing story arc”? Yes… but I wanted something different, something specific. So I actually wrote two. One, finished on time but unpublished; the other, today. …And, of course, I’m not satisfied. Enjoy.

At last, a stress-free vacation. Finding gray hairs, Liz and I marked our trip with the Glasses on the calendar.
A needed moment of laughter with Liz was interrupted with Linda Glass storming out. Jared’s having an affair. They fought. When it got dark, only Jared returned.
“Where’s Linda?” I asked. Nada. Something felt wrong. I grabbed a flashlight. Finding blood on the dock, I ran back. “What did you do?!” He denied everything, so I revealed everything. That was stupid.
So there I was, in the rusted canoe, bound and gagged. What really hit me: Liz was rowing.
Every week Rochelle hosts a link-up, where the objective is: a three-part story, at most 100 words, for a picture prompt by week’s end.
