Live Another Day
Cindy O’Brien Richards the third. She was a society wife now. Her husband Jared never let her forget about her humble Irish origins. Sometimes he called her Lucinda. He knew she didn’t like that name. It was stiff and formal. She was young and playful. She used to be that way, now she was fearful and cried more than she laughed. She had wanted a baby with Jared. She realized what a mistake that would be, it would tie her to him tighter than she was now. Abortion, how could she have a doctor perform one on her? She was Catholic, the church forbid it. God said it was wrong, her parents, the priest. She would be punished, more than Jared did with his abusive words. She couldn’t wait nine months, then leave her husband. She had to do it now, while she didn’t think of the baby she wanted and prayed for as anything more than a seed. She had to leave this man who had promised to love her, honor his vows, treat her with dignity and respect. She had to forget the life she knew with him. She wanted to live another day.
A Funeral On Friday
For those who want to live, until they die
Lenny Rossiter is a nothing guy. Not much goes on in his life, not much
happens, today, this morning, in the afternoon, he has no hopes for
tomorrow. Yesterday it was the same, and he wants to make Christmas, his
birthday, special. The beginning of the weekend, Friday, that should mean
something. It does to most people. The television tells him, shows him,
points out what it takes to be happy. He watches other people doing all those
things, wonders how he could have them, and plans to make them happen.
He crushes another beer can with his hand, under the glow of the thirteen
Millie Smith, she wants to be a part of it, life, holding a handsome man,
instead of facing another lonely night. She pours herself a glass of tea, holds
the cup the way she has seen society women do it in the movies. The
television stares back at her, the people in the picture, dancing and laughing
on the twenty five inch screen. She reaches out to them, and the nasal voice
of a man assaults her ears. He sounds desperate as he demands that she try
his product, he highly recommends it. She feels his desperation, as she sits
alone, clutching her cup of tea, until the handle comes off the cup, and the
liquid burns her hand. Tomorrow is Friday, a new day.
The wind, the snow, the rain
Standing in it,
Waiting for the midnight train
The train comes out of nowhere, a shadowy form catches the last car, almost
landing on top of another shadow that is hiding in the darkness. A soft grunt
can be heard as they roll away from each other in the straw. A third shadow
asks the newcomer for a cigarette, part of a cigar, some shreds of tobacco.
He shakes his head that he has nothing for the man, if he did he wouldn’t
give it to him. Three shadows come at the man, wanting to see for
themselves what he has, and if it is worth taking. They trade punches, curse
at each other, as the train cuts a path toward its destination. The hot August
night turns the air to steam as the men gasp for it, watching for the man with
the flashlight. He will throw them out of the boxcar as if they are broken
twigs needing to be swept away with the garbage littering the ground. The
train rumbles on through the night. The men will scatter once the light from
the sun appears. They are no longer shadows, they have to wait for another midnight train.
The Last Inning
The Last Inning, is about a baseball player, who is trying to save his
crumbling career. His biggest fear is that he’ll end up selling cars and
wearing a suit and tie, six days a week. He becomes surly and difficult
with those around him and tries to hide his feelings from his wife,
which is his worst mistake. She is the one person who could share what
is happening to him, as she knows him best, after 18 years of marriage.
Old-fashioned ideas of men and women keep Tom Miller from doing
what he needs to and saving what he can, accepting what can’t be
salvaged and being mature enough to know the difference.
The story uses baseball as a background and plays an important part,
but the characters are the most essential elements. It is one man’s
journey through his life. Flashbacks tell who Tom Miller is, was, and is
becoming, as time won’t stand still for him, as he wishes that it would.
There are many surprises for Tom, such as Michelle who wants to
blackmail him, J. Pollidor, Esq., who wants to exploit him, his
treacherous neighbor, Steve Townsend, who poses as a mild mannered
accountant, while in reality is a backstabbing, envious, little man. Tom
has to learn what’s worth fighting for and what isn’t, before he
