Of Will and Wills…

https://unchartedblogdotorg.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/welcome-to-six-sentence-stories-40/ 

Cue:  WILL

No will left, he whispered to no one; nor wish, or ‘want to’…hardly strength to wave farewell.

He hadn’t updated his Will, written and filed somewhere…forgotten, just as he’d mislaid his last named beneficiary…

Certainly it was someone he’d shut out of his life, no longer communicated with—an imperfect situation, as legalities (and matters of the heart) go.

What the heck, everything he owned was pretty much crap, regardless.

Leave it for the next tenant, maybe they will have need of it—the impoverished view any gift as blessing.

Hopefully they won’t inherit the curse, Will thought, and closed his eyes on a sigh.

  1. Like Paul said, I love the part about the impoverished seeing any gift as blessing. If only more of us remembered to see things that way, impoverished or not.
    Sad that this person feels what he has left in the world is of no value – it speaks of a much deeper story. And a curse at the end? Interesting…that would be fun to know more about.

  2. Wow, RL, this was so sad, but rang true of real life and relationships. This man is so very alone in his last hours, having given up on life, and I can’t help but wonder what the curse entails. Sequel next week please!! 🙂

  3. You are such a gifted writer! You draw me into these stories and make me care about what happens! Thank you! And you write so vividly, I can see it all playing out! Your PA needs to get in gear and find you an agent . . .or movie deal! :).
