As I entered the room, I saw a lady in a magnificent red dress and ostrich feathers in her hat, scuffed red pencil heels and a whiff of cheap perfume with a cigar in hand, chipped red nails on a veined hand stroking the cat on her lap, and calmly rocking away on her chair. Looking around the room, I saw that, though now shabby, the room must have been really beautiful, some 40 years back. There was a lovely carved teakwood liquor cabinet in one corner of the room, a teakwood bookshelf with empty shelves on one side of the room, a few scratched plastic chairs and a worn beige carpet with longitudinal stripes of maroon. Clearly the room and the lady had seen better days. There were a few old faded boxes of Hamburger Helper on one of the book shelves. As I entered she said in a high throaty voice “Since you’re here, you might as well hand me that box of laundry detergent from the top shelf. I can’t reach it. Tabby and me have a partnership. She dirties my dress and I clean it. So where are you from young man?” San Fransisco.” “So what is your prognosis on the weather for today? I don’t want to go out if its very sunny. I don’t want any pre mature crow lines.” “Ummm, well it is a sunny day today. You probably shouldn’t go out”

I shall continue the story in next week’s Wordzzle.

  3. Great job. She sounds like she’s going to be an interesting character. I love the tone of this piece. You set a mood even before she speaks. Please do add your name to Mr. Linky so the others can find you.

  4. Great wordzzle smm – I saw your comment to Raven’s post but didn’t see you in Mr. Linky. Make sure you enter there, this is a fun story that everyone should see.

    And you’re going to continue it! That’s cool, a few of us have done that and now I’m hooked on all the characters.

  11. Anu: The Wordzzle is supposed to strictly be a paragraph, so I don’t think I can break out the dialogues 🙂
