Laughing Boy

Letter to a Loved One (Flash Fiction: Under 100 Words)

You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for you.

You, so slow and laughably unintelligent. Yet, I don’t know where I would be without you.

Your glow, like the sickly light of a bug zapper, a blinding beacon in the dark.

Your warmth, almost unbearable, but that’s just how you are (not when we first met, but for now, and until the day you die). And your humming, so quiet, but always there. Always, always there.

You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for you, my beloved computer. I’ve missed you so.

The End.

Blah blah thanks for reading. Blah blah download free short story. Nobody is reading this. Like, Follow, Comment. Or don’t! No, wait, please do, it means a lot to me. Talk to you soon!

  1. Nice little love story! My computer has sound proofing so I rarely hear it humming and I used a special case so don’t see its glow, but I’m in an interesting time in my life about now and my computer has been definitely keeping me company. Blessed be electronics!

      1. I stepped on my aluminum laptop once, it made a slight cracking sound but then it became quiet once more. Amazing yours is still ticking despite the coronaries!
