Friday Fictioneers: 29th March

Thanks Rochelle for such a lovely picture this week

The invitation had been to come to the marina for a trip out on the boat.
Dressed in white with a bikini underneath for sun-soaking on the top deck, the taxi driver gave her a lecherous grin.
She made her way to the desk to ask where she might find Monsieur Davenport’s yacht.

The girl looked surprised, saying Monsieur D did not have a yacht.
He did however run a small water-taxi service to and from the yachts, and she would find him on Pier 3.
Seeing the tiny open-top cruiser alongside a four storey gin-palace, she turned tail and fled!


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. 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.

    I can’t help but feel sorry for Mr. D. but if she fled his not so illustrious life he dodged a bullet.

  4. Dale says:

    Never good to assume…

    I can’t be sorry for her, Mr. D. didn’t lie.

    I wonder what yarn he spun over a glass the night before. Good fun thank you.
