Envy

“The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”

By Scott L Vannatter – November 7, 2014

Sharon watched as Sam kissed Maggie right in front of her.

At that moment, Sharon hated both Maggie and Sam, even though they were all under six years old; jealousy and envy are very closely related at that age.

Sharon ran off into the woods to her favorite tree, the one with the big thick bark and the wise old owl who often talked to her at times like these.

After listening to the owl for over an hour, Sharon had that smile that looks good to adults, but, in reality, should be feared utterly.

Neither Maggie nor Sam were ever seen again, but Sharon was allowed to keep the two toads she found as pets to help her through her tough time.

“Set in Stone”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Jordan looked at the nearly-finished product: a wooden plank with shells and rocks glued to the back in a nice formation. He stood back, a bit disappointed for the umpteenth time this month.

“Will I never get it right?” He said, mostly as a whisper.

He turned and walked out of the workshop room to prepare some much needed nourishment. Alone in the room, the board began to glow softly. As it sat there, the glow picked up intensity and began flashing. Just as something began to creep from the aura, the precarious board fell to the floor, all lost.
