100-Word Story: Sue Buys Vitamins

My assignment was to write a story where a character finds meaning in his or her life. I wanted to make this sweet and meaningful, but it turned out as just about the coldest thing I've ever written.

Sue Buys Vitamins

Sue shut her books. She wanted to study for a promotion at work, but just couldn't get motivated. Lonely and depressed, she went to the drug store and bought cigarettes, candy, a movie, Jack Daniels and something to answer a question that had been bothering her for the last few days.

When she got home, she went into to the bathroom with one of her purchases.

When she got out, everything had changed. She gathered all her remaining purchases and set out her study books again before going back to the drugstore.

She returned her purchases and bought prenatal vitamins.
