Who’s the last person you saw before reading this prompt? Whether it’s a family member, a coworker, or a total stranger, write a post about what that person is thinking right now.
So the last person I saw was my cousin, as she decided that she wanted to get out of the house and go for a drink at 8 last night. I know what she’s thinking right now and I know what she was thinking last night too. She’s thinking about how her parents are falling apart right before her eyes and she’s frustrated, because if her dad tried harder and stopped hiding things from her mum, they could possibly make this work. She’s thinking about moving out to some quiet place, where she doesn’t have to deal with constant disagreements and tension and she’s thinking about how she doesn’t like to see her mum so upset. She knows for certain where she will end up if her parents split, but she’s not sure of the effect it will leave on her unstable dad and if her mum could ever love anyone else again, because her dad is all she knows. Who will get the dog? Who will get the house? Will her dad go off the rails? Would they all be happier?
