A Walk in the Park

A man and a woman walk through the park together, holding hands. They pass an old woman sitting on a bench. The old woman is knitting a small, red sweater. The man begins to cry. Write this scene.

Today’s twist: write the scene from three different points of view: from the perspective of the man, then the woman, and finally the old woman.

Man: (Thinking) This is nice. Okay. Okay.  Ooh – crack! Okay, missed it. Okay. What? Okay. There’s a bird. Okay. Don’t poop on me – what?! Okay. It’s okay. Oh look, a woman. Okay.  This is – what was that? Who said that? Was that real? Wait, I know her… Oh God – mom?!

Woman: (Thinking) Okay, so far so good. Jesus, after four years, I can’t believe he’s willing to left the hospital for a walk! The meds must me workin’ for him. Will he start talking? What would he say? Probably bitch us all out for injecting him so many – what?! He’s crying?!

Old woman:  (Thinking) I can’t believe I brought this here, the sweater I was going to make for his son. Was that the wrong thing to do? Will I even see him? How different is he? Oh – I see him. He looks just the same! Does he see me? Does… Oh… he does!
