FFfAW Challenge – 183rd

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
Week of 09-18 through 09-24-2018


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Michelle DeAngelis. 

‘You know I love you, right?’
‘Yes, I know.’ she said contentedly as he nuzzled into her neck.
‘And I know we’ve only known each other a short time.’
‘Yes. But it doesn’t matter. Now is what’s important.’
‘I wanted this to be a day to remember.’
‘Me too……..’ Her words were lost in his kiss.
There was a sudden commotion above them and a frantic yell of
‘Get out of the way! I’ve lost control!’
‘Isn’t that your friend?’ she asked, watching helplessly as he landed in the water narrowly missing them on the pier.
He sighed.
‘Yes. That’s Peter. We’d better go and fish him out.’
‘Why? He’s perfectly capable of saving himself.’
‘I know. But he was supposed to deliver your engagement ring so that I could propose in style. It will be just my luck for him to have dropped it.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
