#SixSentenceStories; Restore

As I said in my previous post, a response to Friday Fictioneers, I am trying to thread some scenes together with my Marge Small et al characters. This week’s Six Sentence Story isn’t much of a story but continues the scene seen in Friday Fictioneers. Thank you Denise and fellow Sixers for your indulgence.

Restorative Justice

Something was different. Ilene had been laughing and talking and then a cloud had come over her, dark and silent.

Marge unsuccessfully tried to get her friend laughing and talking again but was unable to restore their earlier jocularity. 

“Ilene, did I say something to offend you?”

“No, Marge, honestly you didn’t; sometimes I just get in a mood, if you know what I mean.”

Marge mused that this was something else they had in common, for she had to admit, she too could get in a mood.

  1. A universal truth of humanity – we get moods.
    And Marge shows the mature way of dealing with an awkward situation – she asked if she had done something wrong.
    She diffused the situation rather than reacting herself.
    I like that woman.
