The time has come to for another round of Friday Fictioneers Hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple. A bunch of us bloggers write 100 word stories on what our imaginations come up with for the photo prompt.
I don’t get a chance to do it every week but trust me they are fun to do. Please join us at Friday Fictioneers
My story this week is ‘The Gift’ rate G and is exactly 100 words.
She’s in her faded housecoat, a rag tied on her head. A pot of meatless beans is simmering on the stove. Her foolish, unemployed man is in the pub as usual.
“I finished, please my dear.” He pleads, “come.”
She turns off the pot, wipes her hands and hangs her apron on a hook.
“Okay,” she sighs.
He pulls her through the crowd that has gathered in the square.
“Why did you bring me to see this junk?”
“I made it for you.” He says. “Happy Valentine’s Day.” Then hand her a check from the Chamber of Commerce. She faints.
