A flash fiction story.
Six: That means stay at home. Lena had written the rules herself. But lately she’d been feeling lonely, so maybe she should roll again and see what fate had in store for her.
Four: Go to Lisa’s party. It was her friend’s birthday, and she hadn’t seen Lisa in a couple weeks. But that would mean taking an hour-long train ride, and then walking in the snow. Another roll couldn’t hurt.
Two: Hang out with Ben. He lived just down the hall, and they had been planning for weeks on a horror movie marathon. But Lena wasn’t in the mood. Besides, Ben might try to tell her he loved her again. Better to do something else.
Three: Meet Sean at the bar downstairs. He was hot, especially when he did that sexy thing with his lips. Lena knew he was trouble though. He was known for being a womanizer. Maybe she should stay away.
One: Go to the pet store and buy the cat she’d had her eye on. He was a cute tabby, with hazel eyes and a playful tail. Cats scratch though, and Lena didn’t want to worry about caring for another being. She could barely care for herself. One more roll—that would decide everything.
Six: The gods have spoken. Lena sighed, relieved and disappointed. Another night alone.
