Janet Flash: "Untogether"

by Michael Seese

It's been a few weeks since Janet Reid held one of her 100-word contest. But this week our patience was rewarded. The words:


And here is "Untogether."

Emily smiled. She'd grown weary of living in her sister's shadow, following her every move. But today, finally, she didn't mind.

Emma earned straight A’s. Emily had straight lines on her thighs.

Emma published four books. Emily had a blog.

Emma owned a house in the ‘burbs and the Hamptons. Emily owned only debt.

Emma had perfect pitch. Emily could carry only a grudge.

Emma gave Momma and Poppa three little ones. Emily had cats.

Emma always erred on the side of caution. Emily erred on all sides. But today she would not.

Jumping is idiot-proof.

And in case you're wondering, "Untogether" in not a word, but songs by Belly and Lush
