Midnight Caller


The Rogue Speaks:

Midnight Phone Call


Lauren felt as if she were hanging on a cliff. Carefully, she replaced the phone, and her eyes filled with tears. She could hear her heart beating wildly in her ears. It had never occurred to her that something so devastating might happen, something that would tear her world apart.

She arose quietly, and tiptoed down to the kitchen. After pouring a generous drink, she sat down at the kitchen table, and stared into the darkness of her living room. Fear and anguish gripped her, and she felt herself spiraling out of control. How could she tell her children? HOW??


Jenny has done it to us again, Centusians! Just when we think she might calm down and let us slowly work ourselves into a new year of her Saturday Centus, she throws us a curve ball! Well, we Centusians must show her that we will successfully tackle ANYTHING she comes up with. And if you don't believe me, just check out the other offerings!!

You're so mean to leave us dangling like that! :)

Please don't say it's so! I hope it isn't her husband. I hope she's got a glass of whiskey in front of her! I know I'd need something to burn going down so I could feel something other than numb. ~Ames

This is a great piece as usual and the picture brings back memories, only no children to hear the sad news. Wonder what Lauren's story is, though.

Thanks for your kind words on my post!
