Fiction in 50: A Dawning Realisation

This month Bruce has challenged us with the topic of A Dawning Realisation [sic].

Title: Clueless
Word Count: 50

Chuck woke up face-down in the street. That was the problem with dreaming, eventually you wake up.

He made a quick inventory of body parts—head, hands, arms, legs, feet—they were all there and they all hurt.

What happened? Why me?

Because shit happens, and it happened to you.

Note: Bruce & Ideflex have inspired me to serialize this post into a monthly saga — 50 words at a time. You may click on this link to start reading this anthology.

    Now that’s the way to tackle something! One mysterious bit at a time – going to try my hardest to keep up – sooooo much work, so little time for my favourite occupation WP! Looking forward to see which direction (sorry bad pun) this is going…

    I am new to this challenge. I am following!

    Ha, that’s funny! You’ve got my mind running to catch up with Bruce and see what the heck happened. A hangover perhaps???

      I am not sure either. Now that I have challenged myself to continuing this thread of a story I guess we will find out in 30 days from now.

        Then you’ve got plenty of time! I’m sure you’ll come up with something good. 😉

    What can you tell the forlorn dude on the sidewalk? Up Chuck.

      Excellent. I thought he might be Ground Chuck.
