In The Details…

Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

The Devil lay on the couch. He had given up trying to figure out the new XBox.

Skippy barged into the living room!

“Listen, Satan,” he brayed, “you’ve been sacking out on our couch for weeks, and I’m sick of it!”

“Not only that,” Satan cut him off, “I’ve been fucking your girlfriend on the side! Hahaha! Heeheehee!”

“What!?” shouted Skippy.

Brenda eased in, smoking a cigarette.

“He learned to play ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ on the acoustic guitar for my birthday, just like you said you would. He played it and we fucked.”

“You fell for that?! He’s the devil!” sputtered Skippy. “You invited him in,” responded Brenda. “…and he doesn’t wear his Panera Bread uniform around the house like you.”
