Dangerous Anticipation

Veronica Volt's picture
Submission type:

It stands there always. Sometime alone. Sometime with others. Some feed it. Many visit it. In rain it stand, in sun, in day, in night. Guardian of the secrets within. Keeper of the mysteries shrouded in paper and string.

Veronica walked over to it and stood in front of it. Was it in there? She thought to herself. Had it arrived? A man nearby glanced in her direction. A woman stopped talking to her friend and turned to see what would happen. Two people walking stopped to watch. Excitement. Anticipation. Veronica opened the mailbox. Slowly. Carefully...

It was empty.

Disappointing post she thought and walked away.

((Thanks for starting my day off with a smile :) )) 


Joe licked his fingers and pinched out a burning ember on what remained of his clothes. Still deaf from the blast he watched the nearbt vendors and Union guards put out the last of the fires. No doubt the crater where the mailbox had stood woiuld be filled in and a new mailbox errected... again. The phrase 'Disgruntled customers' took on a whole new meaning when people had such easy access to explosives. Oh well, he thought, at least he would have an interesting answer to Kirsten's "How was your day?".

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

Joe.  I told you should let me look after the complaints file... how you say it? " You are a bleedin' liability ". You stink of cordite, I have made up the bed in the spare room... guhh.

" In space, no one can hear you scream...      except Joe "

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.
