Saturday Centus - Birthday Candles
Welcome to my little contribution to Saturday Centus, sponsored by Jenny Matlock - Off On My Tangent. She posts several memes during the week with which we can play along. On Saturdays, she gives a prompt and challenges us to write a short story, 100 words or less, using the prompt as the topic. AFTER you read my entry, and, give me a thumbs up or thumbs down, please click on the logo below and go visit Jenny. There are others there, just like me, with short stories that are quick reads, and very entertaining
The prompt is in bold.
Jack was so happy to be coming home from the hospital. How he hated sleeping in such an uncomfortable bed, with people poking him and giving him pills to swallow. More importantly, his 30th birthday occurred while he was in the hospital. His wife, Kathy, said that there was a cake waiting for him at home.
They walked into the dark kitchen. He could barely see the cake on the table. Kathy lit the candles with a lighter and told Jack to make a wish.
He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake... that every person he had ever known would be standing around the table clapping loudly.
