hundred word wednesday – “jake and”

In Hundred Word Wednesdays on October 12, 2011 at 11:47 am

Here are a hundred words. I have arranged them into sentences, and then arranged those sentences into paragraphs, so that the words I picked are more understandable. Enjoy.

Brian’s life had been a quiet one, and he couldn’t remember thinking of anyone as his enemy until he met Jake.

He tried to be kind, wanted so badly just to get along with the man, but Jake was always combative and argumentative. So Brian and Jake fought whenever they spoke.

Jake’s wife had died suddenly not long ago. He didn’t sleep well anymore, but when he did sleep, he dreamt vivid memories of her. The dreams that made him happiest weren’t of their best days, but of their most normal. He loved to dream about their little fights.
