Fix (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

Becca lets out a long, shattered breath as she edges Richard’s Infiniti back into its designated space, what has surely got to be the most inconvenient space in the whole garage, but — she did it! Today Wine World, tomorrow (or next week) a furniture store.

She’s brought up short, hands on her hips, as she confronts the problem of transporting 36 bottles of cabernet sauvignon up 22 stories without breaking them, or needing help so everyone and the concierge knows, or making less than six trips. This is ridiculous.

It’s not like she should have to hide it anyway.  It’s just to help her sleep.

This is a vignette from The Life and Times of Jane Doe for this week’s Six Sentence Stories blog hop. The cue was “fix.”

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

  1. Oh dear, that’s some heavy duty sleep she’s requiring! I can’t help but smile at the problem she’s presented for herself, too much to carry up without being noticed. Perhaps she could leave them stashed in the car and just bring up a few in a subtle bag each day, but I suspect she needs the “comfort” of knowing an ample supply is close at hand. Great storytelling!

  2. Sadly the effort she needs to get them up to her apartment undetected will make her so tired that by the time they are all up there she’ll fall asleep without tasting one!
