Sweet Like Candy

Peculiar to think we once referred to us as we and not as you and I.

Or maybe it isn’t strange at all because the history of us has always been the sort of seesaw best saved for the playground.

You chased I and then I chased you until the day of the crash when things changed and you became I and I became you.

Chocolate met Peanut Butter and no one could ever have imagined them as individuals, because together they were perfection, until they were not.

Two crumbs and a memory of something were all they left behind.

Made a last moment decision to enter the 100 Word Challenge. Since I was strapped for time I gave myself 5 minutes to write and another 3 to try and clean up any spelling and or grammatical errors.

Might have to start doing this on a regular basis, I miss writing like this, don’t do it frequently enough.

It is a great tool to work on our writing skills, got a ton of it marked under the Fragments of Fiction category, might be time to do some more with it.

    I really like the opening and closing lines.
    Nice challenge-within-a-challenge you set yourself!

    You did write one! Woohoo! We all need to become regulars and have some fun!

    Isn’t it the truth? It is until it’s not. Eight minutes or a whole day, I really liked this.

    Great to see you writing like this. I know I missed it. Too caught up in crafting long winded epics. I much prefer the tight word count.

    Nicely done! All the more so as it was accomplished in 8 minutes. Bittersweet! (pun intended) 🙂

    This was so good and true. Things are so perfect until they’re not.
    Well written!
