Down at the Bowling Alley at Midnight

100 words about New Year's Eve bliss

Honestly, this isn’t how I expected to spend New Year’s Eve. Mum had to cover for another nurse at short notice – again – and felt bad for leaving me on my own. So she asked Aunty Callie and Callie said, ‘yes if she’ll come to the bowling alley.’ Bowling sounded boring, but Callie’s cool. Her friends are, too. And one of them brought his teenage brother along, Colin. I quite like Colin. We make a good bowling team even though we keep messing around.

I hope Colin’ll kiss me at midnight.

Somehow, I’ve ended up in the right place by accident.

  1. Wonderful story! She not only is having unexpected fun, but meeting Colin was the hi-light of her night. If he kisses her when the New Year comes in, she will really be thankful for spending it in a bowling alley.
