First Line Friday: 9th June

Being tied to a chair was about as unpleasant as he imagined.

Well, thanks Dylan. That’s a toughie!

At least he wasn’t naked.
But damn, the chair was uncomfortable. His backside had numbed out ages ago, and to try and keep the circulation going, he took to jogging his legs from his sitting position. The resulting pins and needles were almost unbearable.
It was pointless taking in his surroundings. There were none, just four grey unpainted walls, and an equally grey floor and ceiling. There wasn’t even a window, the light filtering through a glass pane in the top of the door frame.
He hoped they hadn’t forgotten him.
The script had called for authenticity and this was just an audition.
But it was awfully quiet out there.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
