Weekly Challenge #108 – Gold (100 Word Stories)

It’s that time again – 100 Word Story Challenge time! This week, the topic is Gold. My entry (as Steven the Nuclear Man) is below. Go vote for my story, MCJC’s, or any others you think are worthwhile!

Gold

The machine goes ping and she stifles a laugh. They loved that movie.

His hands are cold in hers, so she is not surprised when the rhythmic
ping changes to a whine, then to the chaos of nurses and doctors
performing a full code. She allows herself to be ushered out to the
sterile comfort of the waiting room.

Couples fight silently overhead, the trash tv thankfully muted. Her
fingers caress the worn gold of her ring. She wonders if she will
wear it once he has gone.

She sees the doctor in the doorway, and stands to meet him.

Remember to vote!
