It’s time for a Promptly Penned post – we all get the same prompt and see what we come up with.
This prompt actually worked well with what I’m currently working on, so I went with it. 🙂 Short and sweet.
As always, the prompt itself will be in bold and red.
“So, how long is the silent treatment thing gonna last?”
Cam opened one eye to half-heartedly glare at Trent, who flopped onto the armchair across from where Cam lay on the sofa.
“I didn’t start it,” he said, knowing full well how childish he sounded, but at this point, he didn’t much care. “Go ask your boss. Since he obviously has all the answers.”
“So I’ve been told.”
“One of you needs to give in first.” When Cam didn’t bother responding, Trent sighed loudly. “It’s driving the boss crazy, ya know? The two of you being at odds.”
“I don’t give a fuck.”
“Kid,” Trent drawled, “you give so many fucks they’re visible from space. Just go talk to him, already. Put all of us out of our misery.”
“All of you?” Cam sat up. “Your misery?”
“Nobody likes it when Mom and Dad fight, Cameron.”
“Mom and—” He narrowed his eyes as the other man stood and headed toward the door. “I better not be the mom in this, Trent.”
“Well…” He opened the door, then turned and grinned at Cam. “You are prettier than the boss.”
He threw one of the couch pillows at the now closed door. Frustrated, he collapsed back onto the cushions. “I am not the mom.”
