Creative Writing A Short Story - 1440 Words

Payday arrived for both me and Patsy, giving us the opportunity to attend the luxurious cinema and a wider variety of movies. As we stand before the array of movie posters, deciding between an action or comedy, somehow, how conversation shifts over to John. â€Å"He was so excited about the other night,† says Patsy. I abandon the posters and give her a questioning look. â€Å"About what?† â€Å"Well, first of all spending the evening with you, and then because you hugged him the way you did.† She taps her finger against her lips as she continues to scrutinise each poster.

Here they are, in full view, expressing their love for one another, right in front of me. â€Å"Patsy?† I gaze through my lashes at her. She turns from Alice and Angelo, giving me her full attention. â€Å"Yeah?† â€Å"Can you tell me more about John?† A curve caresses her lips. â€Å"Sure, what would you like to know?† â€Å"Why did he break up with his girlfriend?† She rolls her eyes. â€Å"She was the worst.
