I've been suffering from a minor bout of writer's block recently, so I was going through some stuff I'd written. This here is a bit of flash fiction (or an extremely short story) y'all may like. Sorry, nothing sexy. I posted it in one of the forums, a while ago, but I thought I'd pull it out of the communique crypt and toss it up here. It clocks in at a scant 176 words, meaning that if I keep babbling here, I may have a preamble longer than the story itself. Anyway...

"The Breakup"
“I’m sick and tired of you! I’m tired of watching you piss away everything good in your life. There comes a time in any relationship when it’s time to call it off, time to end things. Well, for us that time has come and passed. I’ve been patient with you. Good lord I’ve been patient. But this is it, the end. I want you out of my house and out of my life and I want you out NOW!” Teresa’s bottom lip quivered lightly as she tried (in vain) to stop her hands (and the rest of her) from shaking noticeably. This last outburst had been coming for several months and the resulting emotional explosion had left her strangely empty. All she had left in her now was fear, fear that she had gone too far, fear that she had shouted to loud. Somewhere deep within her, her courage bestirred itself and promised to steel her for another few moments. “That’s it!” she thought “That’s what I’ll tell him… Just as soon as he gets home.”
