November 17: Flash Fiction Challenge

Another interesting photoprompt from Charli Mills this week.
You can have a look at the original post here

This challenge is set at 99 words, no more, no less.

He said he was going to take her away for the weekend, saying it was a surprise and she’d love it.
She envisioned romantic candlelit dinners in a suite in a fancy hotel, soft music, and perhaps, just perhaps, he was going to propose.
The joke was on her though.
She had candlelight all right, but that was only because the batteries died in the torch.
Dinner had to be caught, gutted and cooked on an open fire.
Her suite was a sleeping bag in a battered tent.
As for the proposal….. she didn’t hang around to find out.

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.
