The Diary of the Short-Armed Man. (Day 24) by CpSingleton © 2016

January 24th

Evening Mol.
Hope everything is great where you are. I can only assume it must be as I’m sure you wouldn’t go downstairs. 

I have had a better day today, love.

Slept like a log until seven this morning. Not sure if it was that awful pill or my body giving me peace at last.

I dreamt some very vivid dreams about the time we went to Yarmouth with the kids and Kevin had that infection in his downstairs region. Do you remember?

The poor mite. He had some lungs on him for an eighteen month old toddler, didn’t he? Screamed the emergency roof off. 

Mind you, I would if my old fella blew up like a balloon.

You were so patient with him.

I remember you crying on my shoulder when they took him to theatre. 

In the dream we all went to watch Cilla straight afterwards. Funny how dreams roll on, because I’m pretty certain that was a later holiday.

You remember when she sang Mucky Kid whilst looking at Kevin and we all teased him for weeks.

I think he secretly enjoyed it, mind.

Those were the days, eh?

Our June’s coming to visit tomorrow and I’m dreading it. Please don’t take this the wrong way but she so reminds me of you that it cuts me up when she’s gone.

I made another attempt at escaping into the garden again today.

I got as far as the shed before my mouth became dry and I couldn’t swallow. It’s really ridiculous to say, but it frightens me rigid, Mol.

I’m going to try again tomorrow. Only next time I will take a glass of water with me.

I really can’t go on like this.

I’m very determined to beat whatever it is, love. For you.

I would really appreciate if you could visit my dreams again tonight.

Missing you do much.

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.
