AN: To be honest, I have so many drabbles in the queue right now but I don’t want to rush through them just because I’m trying to surpass my current record for the amount of posts in a month (which was the first month of this writing blog’s existence :P). Just wanted to write a little something based on my life in the moment (nothing too special; just really wanted to finish the year out with a bang). By the way, this does make my 41st post of the month which means I beat my record anyway 😛 YAY ME!
Also, quick shoutout: check out my friend’s wordpress. You might know her as Taji, she’s one of my awesome friends whom I RP with and she helps me create all these drabbles and stories that I keep typing up for you guys to see! http://tajiface.wordpress.com/
Before I lose my chance, I want to say Happy New Year to everyone and 2013 is an amazing one for you all! Hope you guys enjoy!
A chilled glass of Pink Moscato was perched atop the makeshift counter, stacked books and DVD cases laying untouched on the carpet below from their abandoned ordering to be replaced with organization on their homes on the various bookshelves spanning the room. The television flashed at the latest show being played, a countdown blazed in the corner as various musicians played their best songs in anticipation for what’s to come. And across from the flatscreen was a comfortable hand-me-down couch where Mae sat cross-legged upon the cushions, her eyes squarely focused on her computer while her Shiba Inu released another sigh in hopes his mother would soon escape to her bedroom with his accompaniment so he could snuggle up in a nest of her various pillows and blankets.
Small chat icons formed at the bottom of her laptop screen as several of her friends sent her greeting for the year to come, Mae simply returning the gestures with good tidings before returning to her latest drabble she hoped to finish before welcoming the new year. Just a few more words and she’d be finished; then she could post it online and celebrate the holiday as it meant to celebrated.
Her fingertips hovered over the keyboard as loud booms sounded outside her home, her eyes peeking over at the window and smiling at the early colors painting the sky. It looked as if one of the neighbors had purchased some fireworks again.
The poor Shiba Inu was startled from his half-sleeping state and leapt onto the couch, burying his sweater-adorned body within his mother’s lap while forcefully pushing her laptop further away from her struggling reach. Mae cursed as she barely caught her laptop from suffering a catastrophic collision with the floor, her eyes glaring towards the dog snuggling up in her lap before she sighed and gave him the attention he deserved.
“We’ll go to sleep in a little while baby; I’m almost done,” Mae whispered to the pup before gently lifting him off her lap and to her side, the girl taking one of her blankets and wrapping him in it to help calm his nerves. With one final touch of placing his favorite hedgehog toy next to him as if he were a child cuddling a teddy bear, Mae lifted her laptop once more and despite everything going on around her she began to finish the last paragraph of her drabble.
She gave a satisfied grin as she read over the finished product; tapping the publish button before reaching over and taking her wine glass in hold. Her eyes soon switched from one screen to the next as she watched the celebrity talents all cheer as the final countdown commenced; ten…nine…eight…seven…
Mae took a sip of her wine as she felt triumphant in the year that was drawing to a close; her hopes then turning their attention on the year that was to come. She was confident that it would be as good a year as the previous one; after all, life is only as good as one makes it and Mae was more than happy with the wonderful friends, family and various other things she had going for her. 2013 was going to be a good year; Mae truly believed that.
“And here it comes,” Mae chimed as she placed her wine and computer away from her person before lifting up her dog and giving him a warm hug; smiling happily as she cuddled him in her arms. “One…Happy New Year everyone.”
A barage of fireworks carried on from outside the house as Mae cheered on with the many others also celebrating the new year; various chat icons popping up again from friends sending her cheers of their own. Everything was perfect in Mae’s eyes; it was truly a Happy New Year.
