Terrible Minds 100 Word Challenge

Chuck Wendig offered up a 100 word flash challenge.  I can’t pass that up!  I love flash!

Bob exhaled smoke and envied the gale as it ripped the clouds apart. She was perfect. A loner. Patterns of behavior like clockwork. Never looked up from her book.

Beads of sweat dripped from Bob’s forehead and he wrung his hands around the tablecloth.

His heartbeat hammered in his ears. Eyes welled.

Three days now. She’d broken her pattern.

The lust cleared from his mind. Startled realization crept up his spine.
