Six Sentence Sunday 9


Welcome first timer and repeaters!  This historic ninth #sixsunday offering is below, while the previous contributions are easily accessible by clicking here.  This is historic cause this wonderful September 25th post below is a bunch of awesomesauce, and that it is my birthday.  I realize I did not give anyone an advanced notice, but feel free for next year, same day, to send gifts.  For this six setup, we previously met the MC, Erica, and the current traveling companions of Cindy and dog named Crystal.  They met the first other living people in three months since the majority of the population dropped dead before rising up.



“How old are you?”  I said nineteen the same time Cindy said eighteen.  I moved the bat to my left hand before reaching in my back pocket.  I handed my ID over to the nicest looking man left on the world.  He looked it over before glancing at his watch, and handing the card back to me.  “Happy birthday, Erica Wilkerson,” he said.




Ironic I know....total coincidence that the birthday clip occurred on my, well, birthday.

  1. Well... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! May your day be filled with love n fun, and lots of wonderful surprises.

    And, fun snippet -- I'm trying to guess, is she underage with a fake ID? Or did she simply forget she'd grown a year older? I want to read on to find out.

  2. Thank you - so far so good on the Bday. Erica has been traveling with Cindy for a month now. Cindy can be an overpowering and talkative soul. When they meet another group of survivors, one asked how old Erica was. That is when Cindy said 18 as Erica said 19. It was the day of Erica's birthday.

  4. Happy Birthday! And great six... it's a bit heart-wrenching to think of that girl having to celebrate her birthday in such desolation.
