Title: Drama Queen
Author: Felicity ladyfelicity
Rating: PG-13 (one swear word)
Summary: Just a little ficlet I wrote. Inspired by Prompt #53.
It had been haunting me for the past few weeks. It was a striped cat, orange, with one green eye and one blue. Whenever it appeared, something bad happened.
Just now, my boyfriend had broken up with me, I was late for work, and my jeans had split at the crotch. Yes, there.
I screamed at the cat. "Go away, you filthy mongrel! Can't you leave me alone?" The cat smiled the way only cats can, and slinked off.
The phone rang. I was in the living room, my mascara smeared, my jeans ripped (did I mention that already?) and my hair a mess.
"Who is it?" I barked.
"Honey... it's me."
"What do you want? Can't you leave me alone for once in your life?"
"Look, I made a mistake. We have to talk."
"Sorry, I'm late for work, fucktard. Good-bye." I hung up the phone.
Stupid cat. Stupid ex-boyfriend. Stupid world.
I know I have a tendency to be a drama queen. But you know what? All the world's a stage...
