53/100 Days of Creativity: Inside

Five years. It’s a long time to leave the business. But my time away hasn’t been wasted. I’ve got some new contacts and maybe a couple of jobs waiting for me if I play my cards right.

My biggest worry right now is putting up a front for Kath so that by the time Seth, Lincoln’s huney, gets out next month things will be sweet between us. I’ll talk to Luke and the boys tonight about finding a cover job.

Tony walks out the prison gate and smiles as he sees Kath waiting for him. He’s looking forward to a decent feed.

For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
huney n.
A lifer’s boyfriend.

Tomorrow’s word:
gillygooly adj.
Anxious, nostalgic and relieved all at once as you walk past your old school.
