The Diary of the Short-Armed Man. (Day 16) by CpSingleton © 2016

January 16th
Dearest, Mol,
I have had the most horrible day since the day you left me.

It started off okay. I actually ate some breakfast of egg on toast and was trying to whistle cheerfully for you. 

At about one thirty I looked in the freezer and saw that I was out of milk, so grabbed my coat to drive to the shops. I was still feeling fine until I stepped out of the house.

I don’t even know how to explain it, love, because the sun was shining and Janet from up the road waved hello, but all of a sudden it felt like the world had sort of sped up and I hadn’t. I felt sick and couldn’t breathe. It was horrible and frightening, Mol! I just didn’t know what to do, so I rushed inside and ran to the kitchen tap and threw water on my face. But even that didn’t calm me. 

I’m ashamed to say that the only thing that did was a glass or two of brandy and you know how I hate to drink in the afternoon, don’t you, love?

I took myself off to bed when I’d calmed down and eventually slept it off.

Now it’s eleven at night and I’m fully awake and worried that I’m too sick to get milk.

I so wish you were here with me, Mol. You’d know what to do and what it might be, from your days as receptionist for the hospital, wouldn’t you? 

I miss you so much.

Are you missing me?
I suppose I’d better try and finish that jigsaw you bought me. You know, the one of the Norfolk Broads. We loved going there, didn’t we? You wearing the captain’s hat.
I love you Molly Kurbishly. Very much. And will always be 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.
