Friday Five with @meganslayer #writing #prompt #fun

I’m SUPER late on this week’s Friday five because life got in the way. That’s all right. There’s still time to play. You can, too. Here’s the link:

This week’s words are: resort, time, rush, retreat, axis

I’m going to go where they lead me and get back to #findmolly next week.

He told me there was no reason to rush to get to the resort. Said the good rooms weren’t going to be taken because we’d booked ours and we’d have a nice one. I tried to believe him, but I also knew what a lag about he could be. Time wasn’t important to him. Nope. We get there when we get there. But there was a schedule. The computer programmers retreat had a timetable for the activities. How could he not understand I needed to be there, not only to get our room, but to get to the programming on time?

“The world won’t fall off it’s axis if you don’t get there at the exact first event,” he said. “Besides, they won’t start until you’re there.”

I stared at him. “What?”

“You’re the keynote speaker. They won’t start without you.” He grinned. “Surprise!”

I don’t know what happened after that. I was in the car one moment, and surrounded by darkness after that. I must’ve passed out. I had no idea I’d be the keynote speaker… I might have prepared more. Might have worried more. At least I could sleep the rest of the way…

Not bad, right?
