Well, this is literally getting it in right under the wire…well…with a couple of hours to spare!

Disappointment (94 words)

Abby’s father rested his glasses on his open book. “I am so disappointed in you.”

Shame mixed with teenage surliness responded. “I don’t care what you think.”

But she cared. Even as she slammed her bedroom door, rattling pictures, she cared because she’d done something she could never take back.

Headphones on, she’d buried herself in angsty-alt music until her mother shook her arm, tears streaming down her face. Her mother was always crying. She rolled her eyes then flinched as her mother ripped the headphones away.

“Dad”…”coronary” were the only words she heard.

  1. Dear Sascha,

    Oh my! I wonder what she did that caused her father’s coronary. Or did she cause it? Lots of questions. A very good story, though. Glad you made it. 😉
