Short Story Session is a blog post series where I write a scene in the life of random stories. Using writing prompts sent in by you, and from a list I created a while back, I practice my writing skills. Welcome to Short Story Session: Episode 1.
My job is awesome. I get to be a bear that goes to events and blows balloon creatures. Life is awesome. Until I went into work today.
“How many times must I say it? You’re not fired, just moved to a new position. You’re job is being filled with someone more…qualified.”
“But I was great at this job. The best!”
“You’ve been working this job for five years, and was the best. But it’s time for you to move on.”
“But…what am I going to do now?”
“You’ll get the email later. Don’t worry about it.”
Anytime a manager says something like that, it’s never good. So yeah, that was my morning. At least how I remember it. I love being an entertainer! Bringing happy thoughts to people is the reason I wake up in the morning. Now, now it’s going to be taken away. Oh diary, what am I going to do?
Hey diary, I finally checked my email. Looks like my acting career is over. Seems that they are bringing in some animatronics to take my place. Now I get the choice of being a night guard or quiting. How rude is that? They think an animatronic will be a better entertainer than me? Man…it just sucks. I don’t know if I want to keep a job here now. Besides, the animatronics creep me out. Maybe I should find an acting troup to join… I wonder if there are any around here? You know what they say diary, when one door closes, another one opens. Wish me luck diary.
So yeah, this one might have been inspired by Five Nights at Freddie’s. Maybe a little bit… Anyways, if anyone has a writing prompt or thoughts about this series, please comment below or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for reading and I hope you have a good weekend!
