“You’re so sweet to always volunteer to close the store!”  Madison poked her bottom lip out in a bizarre show of solidarity.

Bree straightened an antique clock.  “You’ll make it up to me.”  Though you’ve never tried.

“Stop by the bar when you’re done if you want to hang out!” I never do.  Madison gave her one last pitiful glance before leaving.

Bree finished her duties quickly, then leaned against the back wall in the secret place the store’s owner had revealed to her.  The wall slid away, and Bree hurriedly descended the dark stairs.  Her true friends were waiting.

  1. This for me is bitter sweet, for the dark stairs hint at evil? But I like the way you have penned the story.

    1. I wonder about them too. Sometimes people who feel like outcasts are more susceptible to the wrong types of people. Thanks for reading.

  2. Ooh, I wonder what’s waiting for her down there! Great writing, makes you want more! 🙂

  3. She could become a true friend, if she gave her a chance and went to the bar I suppose. nice twist

    1. Very true. Sometimes we assume the worst of people but her offer to come to the bar could have been sincere. Thanks so much!
