"funeral" a 50-word story written using the freewrite prompt. Humpbuckle Tales 73


Gilham made Molly promise she wouldn't attend his funeral.

"There'll be people there who hated my guts. Crying crocodile tears, spouting sentimental untruths! I want you to raise a glass to me here."

She pours two pints, places one in front of Gilham's favorite stool, and silently toasts her friend.
