What the sayToday’s Writing Prompt:

“You know what they say. . .”

My 100 Words:

“You know what they say. . .” Courtney said around her straw.

“Yeah, yeah,” Ollie said as he stirred his own drink. “It’s always better fresh.”

Courtney’s blonde locks bounced up and down. “No more of this junk,” she said. She grimaced as she took another sip. “How much longer?”

Peering around the corner and up the dim stairwell, Ollie turned back around and shrugged.

Courtney sighed. “Stairway duty is the worst.”

Heavy footsteps echoed above them and the corners of Ollie’s mouth turned upward.

“You know what they say,” Ollie said as he tossed his cup of blood aside.
