Frozen :: A Drabble

Standard

Happy Friday! I’m back with a drabble.  What’s a drabble? A drabble is a short work of fiction, exactly 100 words in length.

Join me. Create your own 100-word piece of fiction. The more dabbling with drabbles the merrier. Tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.

Before you get to the drabble, I want to update you on the “Wednesday’s What is It?”. Generally speaking, most of you were correct with your guess. Though technically speaking, because most of you were specific with your guess, you were incorrect.

The picture was of the inside workings of an umbrella – not a patio umbrella – a regular “singing in the rain” kind of umbrella.

Thanks for guessing, and I hope you will return next time. For now, please enjoy this drabble.

She was cold – so very cold, as her breath crystallized before her.

Through the cold mist she made out a small light, but she couldn’t move.

She began to shiver, as her body tried to warm itself.

Mom.

She heard a voice.

Mom.

She was paralyzed.

“MOM! You’re in a freezer coma again!”

Shaking her head and blinking her eyes, everything came back in perspective. She was staring into the freezer at the three pints of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.  A little over 20 days of the Lenten season remained- but then, those pints would be all hers.

  1. Ha ha! “Freezer coma” is perfect. Absolutely perfect.

    You have more self control than I. Within 2 days, my resolve to give up sweets morphed into a resolve to eat so many sweets I would lapse into a diabetic coma.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
