100 WCGU: Girl Talk

Okay, I’m feeling a bit very rusty with the writing. Not sure what’s going on, maybe it’s the Autumn air, but I had the urge to write, so here is a little sample. Julia’s Place is hosting the 62nd week of the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups, or WCGU for short.

it can't be that time

Girl Talk    99 Words

……………………………………

“Come on, Shella, you remember Trevor. Tall, slim, shaggy brown hair.”

Shella laughed.  “Tag, you live and breathe tall, slim, and shaggy. How am I supposed to remember one specific guy? At least give me a hint.”

“Okay, Aspen. The ski slope.”

Shella’s eyes and mouth rounded in perfect synchronization. “It can’t be that time you-“

“Yes!” Tag squealed.

“Oh my god, how did he react when he saw you, what did he say?  And what did you say? After what happened he must have –“

“I know, I thought so too, but guess what?”

“What?

“It happened again.”

  7. If it happened again it was obviously meant to be.

  8. Very impressive dialogue, and I have a feeling that you want to steer how the reader should fill in the blanks.

    • Thank you for the comment, brudberg. Interesting point, though I’m not sure I was trying to steer in any particular direction, simply because I have no idea myself what it was that happened in the first place. 😉

  9. Such a convincing dialogue Judee, you’ve not lost your touch I see. Good to have you back. Well done.

  10. My sister and I used to have conversations like this that no one else could figure out. (We may have used even fewer words!) I get this one like others got ours. 🙂

  11. Lol. “You live and breathe tall, slim, and shaggy.”
    Beautifully written. All the half-finished sentences make it very realistic.

    Like listening in on any conversation between friends, one isn’t entirely sure one understands, but maybe that’s the charm.

  13. Really enjoyed this piece – and it didn’t half leave me guessing – what did she do ‘that time’ – it could be so obvious but I’m not sure it is ….

    • I was hoping it would leave some questions, and keep the reader a bit unsteady. Thanks for the feedback; if you’re not sure, even a little bit, then it looks like maybe it did what I hoped.
