We are back for another edition of Mondays Finish the Story! This flash fiction challenge asks that the writer complete a story of 100-150 words, using the opening line as provided (in bold and italicized letters), and that the story goes with the photo prompt. Today’s story is another chapter in the Greys Chronicle. The original story is The Wine Bar.
“Are you laughing at me?” I knew they were, and I could have sworn that I saw the damn things wink at me!
Apparently done with my shift, one of the creatures escorted me to what would become my sleeping quarters. As the door opened with a whoosh, I looked around the room. The grey hand pushed me gently into the room, then stepped back as the door closed. There was a bed, a bathroom, a chair, and a table on which stood the orchids. I sat in the chair noting no windows.
Talking aloud to myself, I said, “Will I ever get out of here?”
The orchids on the table laughed, and shook their heads no. I jumped out of the chair away from the orchids. “What the hell?” I said.
“Get some sleep”, they said to me in unison. “Your next shift at the wine bar is in 8 hours.”
