Diary of a short-armed man.

The Diary of the Short-Armed Man. (Day 32) by CpSingleton © 2016


Sunday 1st February.

Evening, my dearest Mol,
I hope this finds you well.

After all you went through before you left you can’t fail to be so.

I can’t believe this is my second month of writing to you.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how much it breaks my heart not to have your replies.

I know I should try and keep my chin up, but the fact that you’re not here doesn’t hurt any less just because another month has passed. 

Our June came today, which, despite her good intentions, makes me feel worse. Although she did have some good news. She told me that our Kevin has been in touch.

She told me that he popped around here to see me just after Christmas, but I didn’t answer the door when he knocked. I don’t remember, but I’m sure he wouldn’t lie about such a thing.

Apparently he is back in Spain and had lost his old telephone.

That would never have happened in the old days, would it, love?

Do you remember when we first had our telephone connected, Mol?

It was the size of my head, wasn’t it?

Remember how we just sat for days, staring at it, waiting for it to ring? Then we remembered that not many of our friends had phones and we could be there for a long time.

We couldn’t have lost that huge Bakelite telephone if we had tried our damnedest, could we?

She left me our Kevin’s new number, but I wasn’t up to ringing him today. 

I will try him tomorrow.

As I will continue to ask you to drop in on me.
All my very best love.
Yours forever, 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.
