Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

A quote: “Humans are amphibians – half spirit and half animal. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time.” C. S. Lewis

I’ll start with a story …

***************************
I’m only aware of the seasons when I pick up groceries down the block.

Otherwise, the weather inside the bar, from start to finish of every shift, is Neon with a high chance of human humidity. End of shift, up the backstairs to my efficiency flat, stand-in for home.

It’s only temporary, I said. Just wait until I sell my script. Or was it a novel?

One night, she says “Show me.” I take her up. All the papers & post-its. She notices the dust. How is there dust?

In her eyes I see how many seasons have slipped by.

***************************

Now, it is your turn.

    You ask why I stopped drinking?
    Got pulled over for a DUI last night.
    Asked for my license and registration.
    Told me to get out of the car.
    Asked me to blow into a little balloon.
    Shone a flashlight in my eyes.
    Asked me to repeat the alphabet backwards from P to D.
    Told me to stand on one leg and count to ten.
    Same with the other leg.
    Then it was the heel-to-toe walk.
    Nine paces down the shoulder of the road,
    Nine paces back.
    I said, “Are you fucking crazy? There’s no net underneath out there.”

    Rain fell gently, blood trickled down the street.
    Two bodies, face down, man and woman, both in raincoats.
    Kelsey knelt, Donnelly watched. They split work; Donnelly paperwork, Kelsey dirty hands.
    He turned the bodies half up, stared awhile, stood.

    ” Very angry woman. Surprised them, shot him close, in face. Woman stunned, couldn’t move,
    two in chest. Small caliber. Ex-lover, in town.”

    Donnelly raised eyebrows. Kelsey pointed. ” No rings, no defense. Go home. She won’t leave tonight. “
