Frozen in time

See the problem with being frozen in time is that even when you want to call out, you can’t.

According to the newspaper I saw being read yesterday in front of the shop, it’s now 2013.
57 long, lonely years since my wedding day and not once have I complained about this whole “being frozen in time” thing.

I’ve never shown bitterness, or anger. Never screamed out at the fact that I’ve missed my Percy every day since, nor complained when I’ve been moved from pillar to post, but right now, all I want to do is call his name.

    That was disturbingly good 🙂

  2. Of course you raised more questions than your story answer, the main ones being who froze her in time and why. Nice play with the phrase.

    Cool switch around, to tell the story from the point of view of the mannequin. I wonder if Percy knows how much he’s missed?

    A different perspective.

  5. Dear Mr. Binks,

    I don’t guess she could do much complaining or screaming in her present frozen condition. Nice one that leaves much to the reader’s imagination.

    Shalom,

  6. Very interesting viewpoint – poor thing. being frozen in time in a charity shop doesn’t seem like such a great fate, but the wistfulness of your story was certainly evident.

  7. Dear Mr. Binks,

    Time on my mind, too. Nice story.

    Aloha,

    Doug
