100 word Short Story: She’s So Impulsive

“Stop being so impulsive!” he yelled at me with some urgency.

I clicked open my shoulder bag and reached far inside, preparing myself for a big fight.

“You’re always like this!” he tells me, “Always acting out, not caring about other people!”

He’s right, I think, he knows me well.

I straighten my skirt and smooth my hair. Taking a deep breath I push open the door.

His elderly mother stands there, looking confused. She doesn’t expect us.

“I’m pregnant!” I tell her.

She smiles.

“But it’s not your son’s, so I just wanted to return this book of yours.”
