Flash Fiction #138

Confession

TAKING CONFESSIONS

Mom told him that college would be different and difficult.

It started innocently enough. He and his three friends, sharing an apartment – his stuff, their stuff – his food, their food.  Then one night, he had crackers….but only Marco had peanut butter.  Take a little now, and replace it after shopping tomorrow.  Only, he spent all evening at the library, and stores were closed.

Well, use a bit more, and shop for sure tomorrow. He came home empty-handed to Marco threatening to discover and beat whoever was stealing his food.

Confession is good for the soul. It’s time to come clean.

    That’s how it starts, soon it will be ‘borrowing’ clothes, arguing over whose night it was for the TV, whose turn to clean the bathroom…

  3. Having anything stolen is bad enough, but peanut butter! That’s criminal.

      I envision an abject apology, and a heartfelt promise never to do such a thing again, followed by a bit more testosterone-driven, alpha-male posturing – then pizza will be ordered, and the cold beer dragged out, and by tomorrow, all will be forgotten…. aided by much alcohol. 😳

    . Ah yes, the joys of roommates. Here’s hoping the beat down wasn’t too awful 🙂

    And one of the reasons I never shared an apartment with co-collegiates. That and the fact I didn’t leave home to go to college… but still! Criminal behaviour to be sure!

    Student living is fraught with such dangers.

      I would joke about being exposed to short-haired women, and long-haired men, but the biggest threat to modern student living seems to be the loss of the right to openly express opinions not in common public acceptance. 😛
