Deafening silence

Samantha called her friend Rebecca during her lunch hour on Monday. She went to a staff room to get away from her desk and absentmindedly poked at her chicken spinach salad.

“I was worried about you,” Rebecca said a little agitated. “It’s not like you to not answer or respond, Sam.”

“I had plans,” Samantha said. “I went out.”

Reflective drive home

Later that Sunday, Adam arranged for Samantha to get her car back. By the time the afternoon had arrived, she was ready to head home and decompress. She dreaded the coming work week and wondered if she’d be able to concentrate at all.

Unsurprisingly, throughout the drive home, her thoughts kept returning to her night with Adam.

Sitting in the hot tub with Adam felt wonderfully relaxing, but also a little naughty. They were both naked, and submersed completely under the bubbling water.

A special song with a message

When Samantha arrived at the concert venue and, with sheer luck of the draw, found a spot to park in, she suddenly felt a little hesitant. 

What am I doing here, she worried.

She didn’t even know where she was going.

She felt her old insecurities crop up again. But she quickly gave herself a pep talk to pull herself out of her funk.

Pushing past comfort zones

Samantha went into her bedroom with Adam’s tickets for his concert and put them on her dresser. She stood in the middle of the small room and looked at the floor-length mirrored sliding doors of her closet.

She needed something to wear to this event. But what?

The following morning, Samantha woke up disoriented and confused. For a moment she didn’t know where she was.

She blinked a few times, looked around, and recognized her bedroom.

Samantha walked along a busy street lined with shops and storefronts, deep in thought and quietly humming a tune. Bundled up in her winter coat with half her face hidden behind her hat and scarf, she kept her head down to protect herself from the cold wind. Despite the tall buildings in this part of the downtown core, she could still feel the icy breeze whip around corners and slice into the exposed skin on her face.

Writing without conforming (and a poll)

One thing I know about myself is that my personality, my character, even my physical appearance, doesn’t fit into a conventional mold.

I’m a very different entity in terms of societal expectations of how someone like me is supposed to be. I don’t fit the pattern of most middle-aged, teenage-parenting women of today, and frankly, I’m just fine with that.

It wasn’t always like that. I am like this now, or at least I’m learning how to be like this more, nowadays.
