The Diary of the Short-armed Man. (Day 14) By CpSingleton © 2016

January 14th
Evening, Mol,
I hope you are smiling brightly.

I am not. I’m so annoyed at myself today. And embarrassed to the core about yesterday.

There you were, in our final days, trying your best to smile, even though the pain must have been unbearable, and I’m constantly moaning at you with this diary.

I read back all my days since starting this and am deeply ashamed. So deeply ashamed of myself.

I will try my best to show you that I can get by, love, but it’s difficult when I only had you and now you’re gone. I just don’t know what to say to anyone else, you know?

I put the bin out today and the young man from two doors down with the baby asked if I needed anything. That was very kind of him, wasn’t it? But all I need is you.

If I could end it all and be with you I would, Mol, but I know you would hit the roof.

Maybe I need a holiday. I can’t think where I want to go, though.

I did laugh today. That’s a start, eh, love?

I was watching The Chase and that Bradley Walsh fellow couldn’t stop laughing at a silly question. It made me giggle too. Then I looked to see if you were laughing and you weren’t there.

Damn! There I go again.

Come see me one more time, love. Please.

Come down and tell me what a silly old fool I’m being.

I best have a tidy around the house tomorrow. June’s coming in the afternoon and you know how she’ll nag if she sees a speck of dust out of place.
Lots of love to you, Mol,
Your Bill.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
