365 Prompt: August 24 2017

Cold front:

According to the weather forecast there was a cold front moving in. It was expected to hit on Friday but to be honest, it was just like life: unpredictable.

I often found myself wondering how it had gotten to this stage.

How had I managed to find myself divorced with two kids who I never saw and a crazy ex wife who I hated. Well, I didn’t hate her but she wasn’t that likeable either.

I often thought, why had she made my life this difficult?

Some people said I needed to take responsibility but I didn’t understand what they meant. I was the victim here; I was the innocent one; everyone else was to blame.

Doctor, I don’t know why I’ve been told I need help,

Sincerely, Frederick.

Louisa sighed and sat back in her seat. She removed her glasses and pinched the bridge of her nose to ease the headache that had steadily gotten worse over the course of the day.

Yet another man who was going to try and pull that shit with her.

She needed a holiday.

Knitting:

She liked knitting. She liked how you could not only make a new design from simple wool but join pieces together to make a stronger and more beautiful whole.

People often remarked on her name: Pearl. It was not only very old fashioned but something that seemed to have influenced her choice of work.

She wondered if perhaps her mother had intended it that way.

Shaking her head to clear her thoughts she knew it was something she would also never know because that secret had died when she was born.

It wasn’t tragic, it was just the way life was.

NOTE: I just want to make it clear that this is a work of fiction!!!

Foundation:

It wasn’t a good foundation for a relationship but it was what it was. It had happened and there was nothing more to be done.

One night stands based on a lie were never good, but ones that didn’t involve any form of contraception were a whole lot worse.

Especially when you ended up pregnant.

365 Prompt: August 19 2017

Blonde:

I was having a blonde moment.

In fact, I’d been having a lot of them lately.

I wondered if perhaps the summer sun was finally getting to me. God knows I never wore a hat and I sure did spend a lot of time outside.

Or maybe it was the peroxide I’d suddenly decided to bleach my hair with. Maybe it had seeped into my skin and made its way to my brain.

Then again, maybe I was just in love.

I was a love fool.
