Challenge – Write a story in less than 100 words

Thank you to writer, Jennie Campbell, for taking part in the challenge to write a story in less than one hundred words. You can read Jennie’s response, Plenty More Fish, below.

Plenty More Fish

She’d texted Lisa the location of the date and a joke about axe-murderers, but that was an hour ago.

The girls at work had her back. Lisa worried. Susan said there were plenty more fish, and she should know, she’d been kissing trout for years. Carly made a joke about ‘six foot, six figures, six pack’ but she was twenty-one and could afford to be fussy.

She checked her phone. No text. The door opened again. It still wasn’t him. She’d started to leave when the message from the dating site came through.

‘Nudge, nudge! Meet your new admirer.’
