Awkward (a 100 word story)

Love should make you feel good, but Francis wasn’t.  They didn’t know why.  It just was odd.  It was the first time they were attracted to another human being.  Cats were easy.  Humans not so much.

Francis walked up to Terry.  “Hello.”

Terry smiled at the ground.  “Howdy.”

Francis broke out in a cold sweat looking for somewhere to hide.  “Well, I’ve got to go.  Bye.”

Terry looked up for a brief second.  Boy, that smile was brilliant.  Then Terry looked back down.  “Me too.”

Francis fled down the hall, but their feet never touched the ground.

Francis smiled.  Progress!
