SSS – Wear

SSS – Wear

Read Time:1 Minute, 29 Second

This post is a participation in The Weekly Six Sentence Story Challenge hosted by Denise over at GirlieOnTheEdge

This week’s word is:

Wear

  • to have on ones body, such as clothing or jewelry
  • to damage, erode, or destroy by friction or use

Weary

“I don’t like it,” the man grumbled as he leaned against the floor to ceiling window of the office, peering out across the streets of the city twenty floors below{.} “They lumber around, wearing our neighbors like bespoke costumes, crowding the streets by the thousands{.} They’re not even proper zombies, they still talk, they still run, and they don’t eat what they kill – they just – I don’t know, hulk out; they smash{.}”

“That’s why we call them remnants, Rio,” Sam forced her duffel-bag closed and clicked the clasp in place to hold it together{.} “I know it’s wearing on you – it’s wearing on everyone – that’s why we’re all splitting up to go find more secure facilities outside the city{.} Now, hurry up, get your shit together; you and I are checking out that Habitech shelter up in the hills{.}”

PS

If the names or subject of the above story ring any bells then that means you’ve probably read some of my stuff over at SeeJayStark.com! I wrote most of the Tales from the Wasteland with Shay, Rio, and Sam. CJ and I have written multiple collaborative stories but… I’ve always kept my name off of them. I get really anxious when sharing my work; however, since CJ has been posting it, they’ve shown me all the kind, supportive comments the stories have been receiving and CJ suggested I start my own blog… so… I did… and, everyone is still being super kind and supportive!

So… yeah hope y’all continue to enjoy.

  1. Recognised those guys instantly! ๐Ÿ™‚ …and the zombie/not zombie weirdness. Kudos to you both and well done to CJ for persuading you to lift your head above the parapet. We all play nicely here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. They’re zombies of a sort ๐Ÿ˜ but they’re not what is conjured in the mind when one thinks of the word Zombie. I really need to get back to the Wasteland stories, and maybe transfer those over here as well.

      Oops, starting to ramble in my reply! Sorry! ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you for reading!

  2. They are all familiar! I remember those Sixes and especially liked the name for the not zombies – remnants. Yes! Bring on more stories from Wasteland ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ I most certainly will be continuing those stories!

      As soon as I get through this Narrator story!!!

      Or… as soon as the stories in my head are too overwhelming and I have to put them down before I continue existing otherwise.
