The Battle of the Spot
The clock strikes five. I gather my things and race to my car.
Jumping in, I throw my belongings into the backseat.
I hit every red light possible, cursing aloud every time.
My thumb pounds the steering wheel as I pull up behind a bus.
After three turns, the way is clear.
My adrenaline increases as I near my street.
I round the bend, praying I see an empty spot.
When I pull into the parking lot, I shout in triumph.
Having beaten my neighbor home, I claim the best parking spot in the lot.
Thank you so much for taking time out of your undoubtedly busy day to read my new 100 word short story, The Battle of the Spot. The inspiration for this story came from my younger sister and her battle for a parking spot in our lot. If you enjoyed this story, check out this short story, that was also inspired by her.
