This week’s prompt over at http://www.carrotranch.com was to write a romance in 99 words (no more, no less). While this pedometer geek stayed within the parameters, it was difficult to only write that short a story. It really needs to be fleshed out. Alas…here is my entry on romance.
Max and Mouse
Max and Mouse met the day he moved next door, and they became best friends. Max said, “I am going to marry you, Mouse.”
Years of school changed his affections; while he was always dating someone, he and Mouse remained close.
After college graduation, Micha found herself in her new apartment when Max called about the class reunion. “No, I’m not going, Max,” she said.
“You are,” he replied. “Because I’ll bug until you do.”
Weeks later, Micha found herself at the reunion. Max was astounded by the changes in his Mouse. Would she still marry him, he wondered.
