100 Word Story: Regret

Barbara told Ricardo to keep his hands to himself and drive. But Ricardo decided Barbara didn’t mean what she said so he kept crawling his hand up her leg until she opened the door when he slowed for a red light and hopped out even though the car was still moving.

Ricardo flipped through a gas station to catch her but she’d already hitched a ride from a guy in a red pickup with Arnold’s Plumbing painted on the side. Ricardo could see her waving her hands and telling her story to Arnold and it made him crazy and sad.

  1. Ricardo is a jerk. I hope Arnold doesn’t turn out to be one as well.
