This post is for Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge.
I've been out for a while, so I'm trying to get back into the swing. No better time than the present. Although the deadline being Saturday is tough for me, I'll do what I can to make it each week.
Check out the other entries over at Velvet Verbosity's site. This week's prompt is "starving":
“Well, aren't you?” she asked “You just said you were, so what's up?”
He sighed and picked his cell phone up from the table, shuffling his feet. When he raised his eyes to meet hers, he knew something had changed. It was barely perceptible but he saw it; anyone could see it, he thought. She was starving to be full of hope again.
Glancing at the phone he noticed a text message. He pushed a button, darkening the screen, and dropped the phone in his pocket.
He blinked and drew a breath, knowing that he was at a crossroads.
