[Write the Story] A Lunch Date Gone Wrong

Posted by reudaly on March 3, 2017 in Writing |

Prompt: A Lunch Date Gone Wrong

Words: eruption, salad, fire, career, assume, roller skate, draw, promise, full moon, sweet


“Tell us everything that happened.”

I took a second to draw in a deep breath. The whole situation was so stupid, and now the Special Investigations Units of Police and Fire were involved.

“Ma’am? Are you okay? Did he…?”

I blinked and focused on the EMT next to the cop. “No. Nothing like that, promise.” Then the story poured out.

So I’m not proud of it, but I tried online dating. After roller skating around the basics, I agreed to meet him for lunch. I’m not completely stupid. I didn’t assume everything was completely safe, after all this was basically a blind date.

We met at a sweet little sidewalk café near my job, because seriously? I don’t make a career of misjudging people. He was everything his profile said he was. The photo even matched. I didn’t even taste my salad.

That’s why I didn’t see the signs of the eruption. I mean, who knew the full moon would change a guy in the middle of the day?

Now there was a werewolf loose in town, and I was stuck with the check. I will never online date again.
