Nothing Good Happens After Midnight

Written as part of a challenge called Moral Mondays,

This week’s theme “Nothing Good Happens After 2AM” and the 100 words or so are.

Rainy streets reflect strobing red and blue lights.  The street still.  Buildings on both sides look on.  A few faces poke out of old windows. 

The crash echoed a few minutes ago.  One sole figures sit on a wet curb.  A couple men shine flashlights to and fro. A radio crackles.  Voices lost in static.

“Kid, how fast were you going again?” The office shouts from beside a car that is no longer in one piece.

“I don’t know.  But I’m gonna have to call my mom about her car.  She doesn’t know I had it.” One very nervous kid working on how to explain this.

“Did she ever tell you nothing good happens after Midnight!”  The voice and flashlight move away.


Don’t Talk to Strangers 

This is part of a challenge, I have taken the liberty to alter the wording.  

Moral Mondays: “Never Talk to Strangers” – Moral Mondays
“Oh my God! Are you alright?!”  Natalie screams out.

Her foot comes down on a leg.  A hidden leg of a person that should have been run over when the car was parked.

“I am fine.  You could have killed me.”  The torn clothes cover a body.  The voice is weak older woman.  ” You give me a hand getting up, won’t you sweetie?!”  

Natalie reaches down with a hand and arm under her shoulder.  The feeling is electric.

The women is a sack.  The sack reveals a beauty growing taller than herself.  The dark eyes glow.

“Didn’t anyone tell you, don’t talk to strangers!”  The witch smiles down at the feeble old Natalie.  

Sliding into the heels, the witch walks down the street.

Treat Others the Way You Want to Be Treated

Steve left with the feeling of being humiliated.  The first day at the new job, didn’t go well. Every mistake magnified by “I don’t know how you did that”.  New things come easy to some.  But the person “helping him” did him no favors.

  When the day finally ended, Shiela looked at  him “Don’t worry tomorrow will be better.”

“So you will show me what I’m supposed to do instead.” Steve replied
