Day Five of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
Barely made it in time to get an entry in today for the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration, what with work being insanely busy and the story concept insisting that it needed at least 200 words, not this 100 word limit stuff.

I persuaded it otherwise. (The title doesn't count!)

**************************************

All That's Left You

Digital technology made it work. He snuck photos when Sam wasn’t looking, printing them at drugstore kiosks while picking up food or beer. Sometimes, he got girls to take silly pictures of him. All of them went secretly into the box in the trunk, the box they’d gotten from home.
 
He fingered the old photos and crayon art sometimes when loss pressed close: birthdays, mostly. Sammy never did, because they weren’t his memories. But he’d inherit that box right along with the Impala soon, and Dean knew his brother; he’d look.
 
Memories hurt, but memories healed.
 
He left good ones.

**************************************

I'll get out of this melancholy mood soon, I swear!
 
 
Current Mood: contemplativecontemplative
Current Music: "Bookends" by Simon & Garfunkel

Get the idea I love these boys?

Thanks!

(I'm really having fun with this 100-word discipline thing ...)

I should own stock in Kimberly-Clark (makers of Kleenex)!

"Memories hurt, but memories healed. He left good ones."

Wow, that was amazing. Impressive how much feeling just a few words can convey.

Thank you! This "convey a story in precisely 100 words" thing has really become an enjoyable challenge - I still don't know how long I'll be able to keep it up, but I'm going to keep tying!

GAH! Its lucky really that these are so short, 'cos otherwise, next thing you know, you'd be making me cry at work.

And boy, am I ever glad of that! Otherwise, you might come after me on a salt and burn!

Thank you! I was being haunted by the Simon & Garfunkel song "Bookends" to the point where I even requested art (points up toward gorgeous cakehole_cat header), so it was inevitable that the song would make me write a story on the same theme.
