Flash Fiction #17

"Every Saturday my favorite thing to do is..."
For this flash fiction story, I used a writing prompt generator to get this initial idea... Let's see what I come up with. Hope you enjoy =)

As a small update, I'm going to be starting a full-time job from June to October. I'm not sure how much it will affect the scheduling of working on my WIPs, or even updating this blog. I'll try to keep it up to date when I can!

I'll be away from my computer for the next 3 weeks, though I'll be taking the family tablet with me... but it's going to be strange typing on it. I feel that it'll be slow plucking away the letters...

As I turned to my right to look at my alarm clock sitting on my bedside cabinet, the time read 8:30 AM. For a brief second after I had awoke from my slumber, I thought it was a weekday and would have been late for school. Then it occurred to me that it was Saturday after taking a closer look on my calendar pasted to the wall by tape. I sighed, and lay back down to try to sleep for an hour or so to catch up on sleep. After a while, I shook my head and sat up as I was stretching my arms up into the air. I knew that when I woke up, I wouldn't be able to fall back asleep again so I started my weekend a bit earlier than expected.

On a Saturday, the first thing I wanted to do was...

"Mike! Can you help me downstairs for a moment?" My mom shouted from below. Even with my door closed, I could still hear her loud and clear. There was never a moment that I thought the house could be so quiet, or a dull moment at home.

I sighed before getting up to walk downstairs. "I'll be there in a second!"

After helping my mom with a chore around the house, I sat down in my chair by my desk and leaned back loosening my shoulders. The one thing that I wanted to do was...

Then my phone rang. I answered the call and greeted, "Good morning, who's this?"

He replied, "Good morning, and this is Glenn. I was wondering if you were free this afternoon to hang out with the group? Nothing has been set though."

"Of course, just text me the time and place to keep me in the loop. I'll be there," I said, "if that's all, I have to get going. Keep in touch."

He responded, "See ya soon!" Then I had ended the conversation, frustrated.

I have been doing this tradition since I was little, and I kept on doing it because of the nostalgia and still having that special time to only myself. I turned to face the TV set at the far table, then picked up the remote control to turn it on.

On a Saturday, my favourite and first thing that I wanted do was to watch the morning cartoon shows from 8 AM to noon.

Hope you enjoy!

Maria ran up and down the street as she stared intensely for the bracelet that she had gotten as a gift. "Where is it? I can't believe I lost it!" She screamed at herself from within. She could feel the rush in the heart beat, and beads of sweat forming on her forehead and back of the neck.

"I'm sure it must be here somewhere. I checked at home, and at school. I couldn't find it anywhere. How can I be so careless?"

Maria cried when she realized the bracelet was lost, and wanted to cry even more while running around. "I can't cry. Tears won't find my bracelet."

When she saw a bracelet near an alleyway, she jumped at it with disappointment. "It's just some junk." She lowered her head at her bad luck, but she got up with renewed enthusiasm unwilling to show defeat.

After walking down the same route from her home to school for thirty minutes…

Maria jumped up and down, wrapping arms with her teammates as her softball team won the game. "Good job, everyone!"

Her teammates reciprocated the cheerfulness, and celebrated the come back from behind win. Maria noticed Sarah and Taylor coming towards her from the stands, and ran towards them. "Thank you both for coming out! It means a lot to me cheering for us in this type of game."

"No problem. It was really entertaining." Sarah hugged her younger sister, congratulating her.

"That diving catch that you made in the field in the ninth inning was so clutch! I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Good job, Maria." Taylor brushed her hair.

Maria froze for a split second as Taylor was making a mess of her hair. She was glad that she was hiding her face in Sarah's shoulder with that moment, as it started to turn red. She tipped her hat down to try to hide as much of her face as she stepp…

"Shoot her." The boss told me as he handed me a pistol, and guided my hand to point it at Ashley. She was tied to a chair with rope, unconscious.

My eyes were wide open with shock. I couldn't believe what I just heard. "B-Boss, w-what do you mean? She's our comrade!"

"Not anymore. We found out she has been betraying us all along. She's a spy for the police."

"I don't believe you!" I lowered the pistol a little bit, trying to grasp what was going on. "Are you certain? She has to be set up by someone else."

"It doesn't matter at this point. Even if she wasn't the spy, I need to send a message to keep my image."

Ashley woke up from her slumber, and fidgeted in her seat realising that she was tied up. "What's going on?" She saw the …
