FF | The Wedding Present

Friday Fictioneers is a group of bloggers who write 100-word stories after being inspired by a photo posted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the lovely photo is hers. You can join in by adding a link to your story to the blue frog link-up on Rochelle’s post for the week. We are allowed to use the photo in our post and encouraged to leave each other nice comments. I write my story before I read any of the other writers’ creations, although I do often read Rochelle’s post before I write mine since it is right under the photo of the week. This week’s short story is 109 words long.

  The Wedding Present

He asked why she was sitting at the window. Most women, cheeks puffy from having a tooth pulled, wouldn’t. Jael pointed out the dun at the sale pen. She wondered who would buy him. Her husband did not comment but instead asked if she felt up to eating. When she replied no, he quietly ate while she sat glancing toward the window. He told her to lay down while he went on his afternoon stroll. Much to her surprise when he returned, it was with the dun. They had been married for a year and he was learning at 43 how to be a loving husband.

  1. Wonderful little story. Having had my two front teeth pulled last week, I can so easily identify with a hubby’s loving care. He even bought me a little food chopper because he was worried I couldn’t eat.
