The Weekly Drabble Challenge 368 - Sleep 
3rd-Mar-2017 11:59 am
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you may respond to the drabble challenge at ANY point during the week, not only the day that it's posted. You can also use the awfully handy "track this" button if you want to keep an eye on it.

The rules, such as they are:
1) A drabble is, by definition, a 100-word story. As this is a drabble challenge and not a snippet-challenge, all responses should be 100 words exactly, no exceptions. You may also choose to respond to this challenge with a five-minute sketch.
2) I have been asked to keep this to a single posting a week to avoid cluttering people's flists. So, drabbles will be posted as individual comments under the posting. IF you would like to post your drabble on your own LJ and link to it that's all right too. Just put that link in a comment under the posting.
3) PLEASE try to remember to put the word DRABBLE in the subject line of your comment. That way anyone who might want to read them will be able to easily spot the drabbles in amongst any reader comments the drabbles might receive.

RATING: Rather than worrying about individual headings I'm just going to say that any drabbles posted for these challenges might be a Brown or even Red Cortina for content/language, so let the reader beware!

PLEASE try to remember to make each drabble a comment in response to the original post. That way, if the comments start to collapse, the drabbles themselves should remain visible. Thanks.

brace yourself

Sam's first night at Gene's house, crammed in a chair, wrapped in a tatty old blanket that smells of motor oil, is the best night of sleep he's had in years.

He wakes in the morning to Gene puttering about in the kitchen and it's as if he's seeing the world for the first time. The fresh light, the whiff of cigarette smoke, and mostly the glorious glow of well being that seems to permeate every inch of his body makes him grin with surprised joy.

“Good morning,” Gene mutters as he hands over a mug of tea. “Sleep well?”
