wanna write a story?

Posted by lissa on July 18, 2001, at 23:32:40

I thought it might be fun for some of us to write a story. If anyone feels like contributing a sentence or paragraph to the story below, please do. No writing expertise required (I certainly haven't got any) -- write whatever comes to mind (oh, and Des Moines is a city in Iowa, USA, for the non-US folks).

Dolores looked down and noticed the muddy spurs of Julio's boots snagging on her dining-room tablecloth. Her politeness and desire to scold him fought a swift battle in her mind. Politeness was the victor. Julio glanced at her face and assumed the sudden narrowing of her eyes and compression of her lips were a sign she was having second thoughts about the plan. Words would surely set her off, he thought; better to proceed without them. He raised his eyebrows, smiled weakly, and waved his arm to the side, displaying the palm of his hand. Dolores nodded, went into the basement, and emerged with a screwdriver. Julio could see her proceed into the kitchen, where the telephone hung. She unscrewed it and detached a small envelope from the wall behind it. Dolores looked down at those spurs again and felt utterly disgusted as she traversed the distance between the kitchen and the dining room. She handed him the envelope and headed back towards the kitchen. Julio tipped his hat in a gesture of thanks, slammed the door behind him, and mounted his pinto horse, leaving despair, Dolores, and Des Moines behind him to pursue his next deal.
