And… Another day late! Thanks to Alicia for letting me know that I hadn’t added it to the list.
The holidays and a trip to NYC have thrown me off! I’ve had very little wi-fi, or chance to read anything this week. Sorry folks– I’ll try and catch up, as soon as I can get on-line for more than a few minutes! Check out Friday Fictioneers, a weekly 100-word flash fiction challenge, with a photo prompt– this week provided by Björn . Rochelle Wisoff-Fields runs this wild and wooly circus. Check out the other stories, or find details on her blog, Addicted to Purple. A very happy New Year to my fellow Friday Fictioneers! I truly look forward to each and every week with you all.
Scotch, On the Rocks (100 Words, exactly)
“I hardly recognize you anymore, Jack; all you think about is money and what else you can buy.” Shelly folded her arms and turned away from her fiancé. “You’ve lost all your charm.”
“You didn’t mind my ambition when it paid for this penthouse, overlooking Central Park, or when you go shopping… and something tells me that rock on your hand, wasn’t got with my winning personality.” Jack stirred the ice in his drink with one elegant finger, and licked the scotch from it.
Shelly removed the ring from her finger and dropped it in his glass. “Stir this, darling.”
