Always Sunny On Fulton


It is 100 word Friday thanks to Rochelle Wisoff Fields.  Links can be found here.

Greg did not come for the coffee or the company of people. It was the view he loved. He sat by the window, his eyes turned in the direction of Julia. The details printed into memory, an actor’s role in a play. He knew what he would say. He had practiced a thousand times.

“More Coffee?”


Her hazel eyes met his. Stage fright set in. He stuttered, blushed and whispered words only he could hear.



She walked away, turned to look back and smiled.

The words did not matter.

The stained glass sun rising over new love.

  1. “…whispered words only he could hear.” Poor shy guy. Hopefully he’ll get that tongue untied soon and remember his lines. Maybe Julia will prompt him. She does call him by his first name after all.
    Well done, touching story.

  2. A love story in the making acted out in play. Sometimes silence speaks volumes, and a smile lights a room.

    I enjoyed.


    1. David,
      I think a lot of men can relate to that feeling. Some of us get over it and learn to pull the trigger and just say what’s on our mind…others never do and because of it spend their lives alone. Thanks for the kind words.


    1. Shirley,
      Let me just start by saying your blog is one hell of a pain in the ass for me to comment on…that aside, I like your work but my comments will not be found on your blog because I am not sure what blood type I need to get on it!…I meant to put that aside….Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time out to comment.

      I don’t know what the hell I am doing wrong

      P.S. I would love to comment on your blog.

  3. Hi Tom,
    Coming in early, huh? See how this thing grows on you, kind of like a wart. Ha! Good story. Non-verbal communication doesn’t lie and is the strongest connection between people. Your story captures that perfectly. Ron

    1. Ron,
      I think I always have come in early but this time in under six… I got a kick out of yours this week. Always a pleasure to see you. Thanks for the kind words.


    1. Renee,
      I am not sure if Greg will find his voice but maybe just maybe she will see beyond that and love him for who he is. Thanks for the kind words.

    1. Russell,
      I like the way you think…you had me laughing…”some down-on-their-knees floor time”. That’s a great line. Thanks for the laugh, comment and for taking the time to read.
