After a very special 100 word song last week, hanging with the dudes at Dudewrite.com, we’re back to whatever passes for normal around here. This means Jake getting pulled in different direction in his living room and kitchen by Gus and Mallory, is back, too. Before we get to his 100 words of drama, I’d like to introduce a new 100 word playa – Donetta Sifford. She tracked us down a couple of weeks ago and wrote a great piece last week. Leeroy has a new friend and asked her to pick this week’s tune. I like new writers. I hope she sticks around. You can find the cool named Donetta on the twitter @donettasifford and at her well-written blog : http://myconstantthought.blogspot.com/2012/12/this-could-be-fun.html . She chose Beautiful Disaster by 311.
Here’s my 100:
Augusta’s scowl was identical to her sister’s. Royal blue eyes, small, flared nostrils, and teeth gnashed. Jake didn’t back down. He turned his back to Mallory, still standing in the kitchen, clenched his jaw and leaned into his sister-in-law.
“She let me go that day in the hospital, Gus. I never stopped loving her, but she….”
Augusta put her index finger into Jake’s chest. Tears danced with her eyeliner. She whispered with malice.
“Shut your damn mouth. Camille never stopped loving you. And in her kitchen, where she made you dinner is a disaster not nearly as beautiful as her.”
