First Line Friday: February 14th, 2019

Dylan Hughes hosts this fortnightly challenge alternating with Jim Adams and his musical prompt challenge.

Dylan provides a photo (which is optional)
and the first line to start our post, which this week is

“Screw you, lover boy.” 

Here’s my offering then:

“Screw you, lover boy.”
She angrily tossed the photograph in his face.
I’ll love you forever,‘ she mimicked, continuing
You’re the love of my life. I was nothing until I met you…..…”
She refused to cry.
‘And I fell for it hook, line and stinker, you bastard!’
‘Mollie……… honey………..’ he started
‘Don’t you honey me! How could you!!!’
‘It’s not what it looks like…………’
‘Not what it looks like?’ she spluttered then repeated
‘Not what it looks like??? You’re playing tonsil tennis with another woman, and it’s not what it looks like?’
She slapped him hard across the face and stormed off.
The photograph slipped to the floor.
Rubbing his cheek,  he sent a text message. He had to admit the ‘evidence’ was damning.
‘It worked. I’m off the hook and she dumped me. Where can we meet?’
‘My place, seven o’clock. I’ll cook.’
Kevin hit ‘send’.


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.
