March 9: Flash Fiction Challenge: Honeymoon

Thanks Charli, a trip down memory lane for me!

March 9, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a honeymoon story. It can be between a couple before, during or after the honeymoon. Or it can refer to a honeymoon period. Go where the prompt leads.

The ceremony was an extremely private and personal affair with just nine people including the bride and groom. They held their wedding ‘breakfast’ in a pub function room, complete with homemade wedding cake.
It was the Honeymoon Suite that started their marriage on a riotous note, bunk beds in an inside cabin on the overnight ferry to Holland.
They could not do anything in the nuptials line for laughing at either hitting heads, elbows or backsides, and the novelty of a flush suction loo was just too much for the bride who had never been abroad, or aboard, before.

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. 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.

    Most entertaining Di….those suction loos can be fun can’t they as well as initially terrifying..

  4. I’m glad they were to laugh about it and not spoil the whole day. That’s how we should look at situations like this. Thank goodness they weren’t seasick.

    I hope you got to enjoy many other days together! What a hilarious beginning!

    That’s a splendid honeymoon story to pass down. It’s not the fancy locations or the limos, it’s the laughter and love in a shared new experience. That’s fully expressed in your flash. Thanks for sharing!
