50 Word Stories: Captured

  1. Eeks..brings back a memory of a movie I watched as a young girl. Every time the woman looked in the mirror she saw how she aged, but in life she still looked I think around 30. I have had nightmares about it for a long time after watching it. My mothers plan to stop asking me from staying up late…well, it worked.

      1. I am truly sorry to hear that, because I think you’re quite handsome to look at 🙂
        Besides the fact your are worthy of looking at yourself 😉
