Call for Help

A one minute story
(takes just about a minute to read the whole thing)


wolf moon header vThomasina? Sorry I missed you last night. Oh yeah… well it wasn’t exactly a date just coffee. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to …my phone I couldn’t make it work.

No! I’m not trying to hurt you! I’m not trying to mess with you—you know me better than that! In fact, it’s really what I wanted to talk to you about. Remember I told you that the other night I got bit by my neighbor’s dog? Well, I think I’m sick from it.

What? The moon last night? Oh, the whatever… wolf moon? I dunno. It was an eclipse, right? Look, can’t you come o-o-over?

I did not just howl! Why you say that? I was shivering. I’m sick.

Hey, I need you. Come over. Or can I come over to your place? I need to talk to you face-to-face. I need to ho-o-old you

I did NOT just howl and it’s not funny! I’m sick! I ache all over, I’m shivering, my throat is scratchy, my whole body itches actually. Please, just come over! I’ll leave the door unlocked. I’m not sure I can reach… I mean I can’t get off the couch to open it.

Please!? Half an hour? Ok, but hurry. I’m really feeling strange. Bad strange.

Good bye.
