For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a young woman lying on her stomach and facing the foot of her bed. She’s eating something with chopsticks and appears to be engrossed in watching something on television.
Here is my take for Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge today
He’d cancelled again but she was actually relieved as she was going to kick him into touch anyway.
This evening she was going to have a girly night in, long hot soak in the tub with lashings of bubbles and scented candles, relaxing music, a good book, then pluck the eyebrows, wax her legs and lounge around in PJs watching her favourite video with a take out.
Sprawled on her bed, she raised the chopsticks towards her mouth and stopped.
The noodles dropped onto the plate which then fell on the floor as she scrambled off the bed to look closer at the screen.
She could not believe what she was seeing.
This was HER bedroom, and that was HER boyfriend on HER bed, but it certainly wasn’t her under the sheets, but the blonde bimbo from upstairs.
The lying scumbag! Little things began to fall into place and she was so glad she’d held off on him moving in. Well, the BB could have him.
Having lost her appetite, she threw her dinner in the bin and cleared up the mess.
It wasn’t what was on the screen that had upset her, but the fact that they’d taped over her copy of Titanic!
Oh no, not taped over “Titanic”! 🤣
It should be OK, TV is bound to repeat it!!
It must be a lot of work being a girl, having to pluck your eyebrows, and wax your legs. How could he even think of taping over Titanic!
I had my legs waxed once Jim and I swore never again!!
Lol Di 😂😂😂😂
I’ve never seen Titanic, but I can imagine it would be upsetting to a fan!
When we lived in Poole, our neighbour’s daughter saw Titanic every weekend at the cinema and demanded her mother get the video when it came out. We had the special edition which was better than the original release.
What a goofy thing to do.
Some people like to film themselves. It’s a question of where to draw the line!
This would be the last thing to my way of thinking. 😏
That she gave him a key (obviously) was a mistake. Glad she’s going to correct it – she definitely dodged a bullet!!
Haha on the ending! The nerve! 🙂
Well he definitely a goner now 😡
What a slime ball!
Indeed. I hope she ripped his clothes to shreds and deposited them on BB’s doorstep! haha
He deserves a punch! ❤
amongst other things.
It must have been awful for her to get that horrible sinking feeling.
