Friday Fictioneers: 30th June 2017

Thanks Rochelle:
I’m a bit late with this as it didn’t hit my reader for some reason.

Everyone is entitled to ‘Me time’, she’d said.
So Hank had taken the kids on a field trip leaving her to her own devices for the day.

The alleys and archways all looked the same and with no shops or market as she’d anticipated, it was all a big disappointment.

When she got back to the hotel the kids were full of their trip, how they’d had a ride on a tram, seen goats and donkeys, visited the market and the fantastic food they’d been invited to sample without having to buy anything!
‘So, how was your day?’ Hank asked.


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.

    What did she expect to find? Why was she disappointed? Did she expect to run into someone without Hank and her kids by her side?

    • Ah, that is for the reader to surmise beyond my allowed 100 words, though my train of thought led to her having a dull day without the family but they’d had a wonderful time without her!

  2. Dear Pensitivity,

    What we want isn’t always what we get, is it? BTW, if the prompt doesn’t show up in your reader, coming looking. The prompt along with my story goes up every Wednesday at 2:30am CDT. 😉

    Nice story (and relatable). She wanted some time to herself but I guess the grass wasn’t greener on that side.

    So much for “me time,” though in my case, I’m perfectly happy to be alone with a good book, movie, or something to write.
