Tell me a quick story: Uhm...if you mean fiction then...here
Its cold. January evening. The girl walks briskly, her head buried in her thick grey jacket.She walks aimlessly, she dosent know where to go this particularly cold evening. The wind grazes her delicate,pale face, leaving a tint of pink in her cheeks. She quickens her pace until she finds herself in front of a street corner diner. She sighs and walks inside. she is greeted by the typical sounds and smells of a neighborhod diner. Late night workers eating dinner, followed by their asprin chasers. Wiping their mouths on the cuffs of their crisp,pressed dress shirts. The red-headed, gum-smacking waitress,her face caked with makeup, clashing with her pink apron, and her nametag reading Darleen. Its late...the chefs arent busy, but crashes from the kitchen show signs of life back by the grills and freezers. The girl slips off her hood, and sits down. Some of her short black hair falls in her face, she shakes it out of the way just as the waitress called "Darleen" comes over, coffeepot in hand. "Anything I can getcha darlin'?" she drawls out. "Just a cup of coffee, thank you..." the girl says softly. Darleen smacks her gum, smiles and reaches out for the heavy white mug on the table and fills it with the hot brown liquid. The steam rising from the mug leaves a thin layer of perspiration on the girls face. She adds cream,watches the liquid clouds appear in a miniature muddy sky, and drops a few crystilized grains of snow into her personal atmosphere. A sigh escapes her lips as she takes the first sip of bittersweet coffee. She pushes it away, sitting back in her booth, looking out the window. Her breath leaves little clouds on the window. She sees two women smoking across the street, leaning on the stoop of the library, hooting at young akward men passing by. "Whores..." the girl mutters under her breath. Her gaze drifts to the moths fluttering about the streetlights. She feels like she can relate to them...Drawn to a bright light. It seems so warm, so safe, beautiful, serene, harmless...addictive. Then, suddenly, your flame blows out and you are left with nothing, flapping around in the dark. She feels a tear on her face and hurridley wipes it away. She takes one last swig of coffee, throws her money on the table and walks out quickley. She walks to the corner and lights a cigarette. She exhales the smoke, it looks like a ghost against the blue black sky. Its freezing, she wants to go home, but it is not safe there anymore. She is like the moth..he is like her extinguished flame. She gingerly touches the bruise blossoming on her face and feels the tears well up in her eyes again. She starts to walk again, rapidly inhaling her cigarette. She knows she'll have to go home soon. Her mind is full of thoughts. Like how he came home in a drunken stupour, how he had another woman,half dressed, pinned to his side. How angry he looked, screaming at her, his hand raising to strike her over and over again. Everything seemed to blur together, in a mess of color and sounds. It seemed like a circus on acid, going in loops in her head. She steps in front of a taxi, un aware that it is there and comes close to being hit. She dosent know where she is going, she dosent care, she just needs to think. Smoking cigarette after cigarette, quickley ducking into a bar to grab a rum and coke...
She soon finds herself in front of her apartment door. She takes a deep breath, opens the door and walks in. It is 6 oclock in the morning. He isnt there, and she is relieved. She goes to the bathroom to take a shower. She steps in, and feels the water rushing over her, and imagines it washing away the memories of the night.
(oh wow...I'm so sorry thats so long :blush: )
