How many words does it take to make a story?

Well, as many as it takes to make it understood, so I am told. Day two of my “A Bit of Fiction” project. This one is a lot shorter than the previous, but I feel that it still captures the scene I’m trying to tell.

Mostly I think this exercise will help me with details in my writing. I actually look forward to the post in some ways. I find myself thinking during slow periods of my work day what I could write about, what little detail in my life will inspire my next scene.
