Pulling a thread

Chloe draped her arms over Neil’s neck and nuzzled into his neck.  ‘What are you doing?’

Neil kept his eyes fixed on the laptop screen.  ‘Pulling a thread.’


‘I thought I was finished.  Then I tinkered with the second paragraph, which meant I had to re-jig the third, which led to a redrafting of the whole first section.’

‘And how is it now?’

‘Still unravelling.  It’s like a run in your tights.  One slight nick that’s unfurled into an ugly ladder.’

‘Why don’t you come back to bed?’


‘You’ll be hours.  It can’t unravel on its own.’


A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.
