Twist – A Six Sentence Story

Morning Mist

Gerald said the only problem with Tim’s life was that it had no twist to it.  

This surprised him.  He owned a multi-trillion-dollar company that gave the Moon a sustainable atmosphere allowing mass colonization.  His manipulated philanthropic foundations kept the world rational during the Second Propaganda War.  As he saw it, twist or no twist, someone should give him a medal (and many had).

Gerald admitted he couldn’t pin down precisely what bothered him about Tim except to say, “The only twist I see in your life, Tim, is that you were born, but that should have been just the beginning.” 

Linked to Six Sentence Stores where Denise offers the prompt word of “twist”.

  3. The photo is quite gorgeous! Your Six gives one pause to consider….what one person finds interesting and fun (or not) may be nowhere near what someone else does. I suppose from Gerald’s perspective it looks as if Tim is all work and no play and yet, if one’s passions are like Tim’s, then his work is play.
    Good Six, Frank.
