A Penny For Your Prayers

Post by Vickster » Sun Feb 03, 2019 1:33 am

Noel showed me his abyss last night. Quite a doom-cracker it was, and when it yawned I screamed.

Noel tells me if I throw a penny in, it'll give me god-thoughts.

I said, "I don't want god-thoughts."

But I did.

I got rough with Grandma: "Gimme! It's my penny, you bad girl!"

I told Noel that Grandma wanted to see him, that she'd been feeling poorly of late.

So it was just me and the brooding abyss. I couldn't miss.

The flipped penny fell glinting and twirling, then nothing. Absolutely nothing. And I thought, Noel's going to pay for this.
