Prompt: You


You’re just a few lines into the story, but you turn the page. As much as you try, you just can’t read anything written in the second person. Even something well-written; the point of view is a dealbreaker. You just can’t get your head around the conceit – you can deal with a narrator telling you what he had done or is doing, or what others do, knowing full well it’s artifice. But you can’t take being told what you are doing, thinking, feeling, when you know full well that it is not true.

And yet you’ve gotten this far.
