Late Night

Logo for the Fandango Story Starter Prompt

For Fandango’s Story Starter #26, where we build something around the following phrase:

She didn’t normally stay up this late, and glancing at the stale programme guide reminded her why. Bloody Hell! Was that all? Jools Holland presenting some contrived Hogmanay rubbish?

She looked at the mantlepiece; a quarter to twelve. It’d be on in another five minutes, At least if Moira resolved to watch the countdown, then went to bed, she could truthfully tell her co-workers that she’d welcomed in the New Year.

At first, she thought it was only the dog making noise, but it was sound asleep it its basket. Bloody fireworks had made her more twitchy than Eddie!

  1. I do not like the NYE nor do I celebrate it.I put my ear plugs in and watch something so I am not even aware of when it is. When I use to watch it on TV many many years ago I always got the impression that people were trying too hard to look like they were having a good time.

  2. My dog was terrified by them, he would go into the closet and shake terribly. He even dug a hole in the wall he was
    so afraid. People just don’t think.
