Microfiction challenge #17: A satisfied couple

From Jane Dougherty this week:

The title of this week’s image is in German so I could be completely wrong when I translate it roughly as ‘On the way to church’.

I must admit I think Jane’s title suits it better.

‘Seven o’clock.’
‘Nothing’s here!’
‘According to this’, Anton said waving the piece of paper in his friend’s face,  ‘our ride will arrive at 7.05 pm and drop us directly at his door’.
‘But there’s NOTHING here!’

Looking into the distance, Anton said,
‘Here it comes. Bang on time too, the 7.05 bus to George Street‘.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. I think you’re right, there’s nothing very deep going on in their heads 🙂

    “Why is that woman pointing a camera at us?”
    “Just pretend you haven’t seen her Anna.”
    “But Klaus, I have, and it’s disconcerting.”
    “Just look away Anna. It’s the best thing to do.”
    “But why Klaus?”
    “She’s one of those boat people. She lives on the river.”
    “Oh… poor thing… one of those! Now I understand!”

    I think that’s a very clever response to the image, well done, waiting for a bus, who’d a thought….lol
