Carrot Ranch Congress of Rough Writers December 29 flash fiction prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a cozy story.
Jane grunts, shifts a stack of binders, edges an old printer inches the other way, gaining barely enough to wedge her backpack by her feet. She whomps her head on the underside of the desk, curses. “Who keeps all this crap!”
And straightens to see her new boss. Great.
A thin, lipstick-y smile. “We’re cozy around here.”
Jane’s mind flashes to her library study nest, that couch in the back corner with a hot tea. Or her basement, her mat and sleeping bag, lantern and book, warm dog.
“Cozy’s one word for it,” she says, rubbing her head.
This is a vignette from The Life and Times of Jane Doe. Sorry, Charli, no Prosecco! Other fun flashes from other writers can be found at the link above.
