Six Sentence Stories

Posted Thursday June 9

A story in six sentences featuring the cue word 'long'

With a boring job, wearisome workmates, dreary so-called friends and a lackluster social life, each long day was as boring as the last.

There was only one thing for it, a total change of image and there was only one place to find it, London’s trendiest market in Camden Town!

Fashionable clothes, fabulous shoes, wigs to conceal the bald patch on his head, every look, every style, everything he longed for, and one hour later the transformation was complete.

That night, whilst sitting on a high stool at a glitzy chrome and glass bar, heads turned.

The bathrooms were on the opposite side of the room, a perfect chance to take the long route between the tables of diners and show off the new look to a cool and fashionable audience

Then a moment of indecision, the ladies room or the men’s?



This is my first visit to Six Sentence Storiesa prompt site which came highly recommended!
