“Oh, what a glorious day,” Jane chirps, shoving her backpack under her side of the cubicle counter. “Blue sky, walking uphill I got so warm I had to take my jacket off. The Mountain is out in all her glory and I swear it feels like spring already.”
Becca feels her shoulders pointing up near her ears as if she’s trying to hide her head inside them. Before she knows what she’s said, she snaps, “Oh, don’t even start this morning, okay?”
She’s not sure whether to cringe or revel in the silence that actually feels like a physical thing, suspended around them like a shroud.
OK, now I’m confused. I swear I read this morning that this week’s cue was “start,” but when I clicked the link just now for the blog hop and link-up, it says “suspend.” I daresay one of them was actually last week’s, reverberating around in my brain. So I edited a bit and used both cue words. It’s a twofer Six Sentence Story! You can read fun sixes from other writers here. Join us! It’s fun!

I’m glad you used both! Versatile and creative as well
Two for the price of one! Excellent Deborah.
Click to read my SSS!
yUP, quick recovery and fun to get a twofer.
Seems like someone doesn’t appreciate chirpiness. Cubicles can be so tricky.
Well told! The animosity is almost palbable.
(raised hand waving frantically in the back of the class…) “I don’t appreciate chirpiness! Ask me!! Ask me!!” lol (although one should strive to be tolerant of the hyper-chirpistic personality types, ya know?)
Nice job with the dual prompt!
Both cue words fit so well inside this story Deborah. I love that “Don’t even start…” You can feel the vitriol as she spits the words out. Good one.
Excellent! Isn’t it great when you can cannablize something else at the last minute and still come out on top? 😀
Well written 6.
