In Jayne’s World, we have to write…

Jayne Martin offers up a challenge this morning to get us writing after the long weekend.  (There was a weekend?)  
Per Jayne:

The challenge:  Write a story (beginning, middle and end) that hints at a larger story, but is complete within itself, in 25 words or less.  The most famous piece of hint fiction was written by Hemingway:
            For sale:  Baby Shoes.  Never worn.
Hint Fiction demands reader involvement.  “Why were the baby shoes never worn?” we’re left to contemplate.   It hints at much more, yet is complete in and of itself. 

Write your story on your own blog, then come back here and link up your post.  Be sure and visit everyone else’s offering and support your fellow writers with a comment.  If you don’t have a blog, you may leave your story in my comment section below.  Write and post as many as you want.   Link-up will be active through June 1st.  
Have fun!

Here’s mine:

Second Thought
Smelly toes, phlegmy cough, blanket hog. Where’s dinner? he mumbles, shuffling in.  Eyes meet. He strokes my cheek. Memories swirl. Arsenic in my pocket weighs.
Join the fun.  Write your own, visit her site, and “link up:” HERE
