Saturday Centus – week 5

time for my weekly story. its not my best work I believe.

this weeks prompt words are in bold.

I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder, my date and I glanced at each other through the glasses. I like film-dates they don’t have the uncomfortable conversations. When the man came in, I thought nothing of it, even when he stood right in front of the screen I tried to ignore him. Then he opened his jacket, I laughed and it took several seconds to realise that there was no life-show but just life and the bomb was as real as it could be. In my panic I forgot all about my date and just stared at the man, locked in my chair, waiting for instructions.

  1. Hello, this was interesting. It’s not too far from reality these days . I hope it never happens , I’m afraid after reading some of these takes that I will never want to go to a theater again. Ya that’s terrorism for ya. I’m sorry, but that was very good . Kudos
