The Diary of the Short-Armed Man. (Day 26) by CpSingleton © 2016


January 26th
Evening my lovely Mol,
Hope you are well up there, love.

I’m sure you are.

Slept very little last night, for fearing off having an accident.

I can hardly see to write this, so will make it quick and try and sleep.

A lady from something called Clear Minds rang this afternoon. She said it was about that thing Dr. Laurie’s son, Dr Laurie, had mentioned. That therapy thing. I’m a bit too shattered to remember the exact name. I’d quite forgotten that they were calling and I can’t really remember the full conversation, but I thought it was you on the other end of the phone at first. Silly, eh? But she had your kind voice, Mol.

She asked how I was and, because I still heard you in her tone, I told her how I’ve not been feeling too good.

She gave me a number for the Samaritans and another helpline and said that she would be making me an appointment to see someone.

I’m not sure what good it will do, but I said yes anyway. It’s taken this long for them to ring, so I’m not banking on hearing anything from before summer.

Just in case, though, I tried to go outside in the garden. I didn’t want to having a funny turn on the way to wherever it is they’ll send me.

I got halfway done the path when I realised I was still in my pyjamas.

I can hear you laughing now.

I was too embarrassed to have a funny turn I think. I all but ran back inside, love.

Maybe I should go to the appointment in my pyjamas, eh?

If I’m being honest, Mol, it was nice to talk to someone about all this.

I only wish it was you.

Anyway, as I say, I’m shattered.

Come to see me in my dreams?

I do hope so.
Love always,

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.
