Dinner for Two

When Mark suggested eating in, Beverly looked forward to some time together. Turns out he had invited some friends over. They watched the baseball game on TV, crowding her off the couch. While they dissected each call, she sat apart sipping the wine she brought along for their dinner date and ate some pizza.

After his friends left, Mark asked her to stay over. The snoring from the living room informed her he fell asleep on the couch while she undressed.

Getting ready to leave (and not return), Beverly put her watch back on, wondering where the time had gone.

To read other Friday Fictioneer stories based on this photo, select the smiley blue frog. There are 15 stories already posted as I create this post Wednesday morning (and schedule it for Friday morning).

Sometimes when I write a story, I start at the end. When I looked at this photo, the line “she put her watch back on” came to me and that’s where I started for this week’s story.

  1. Interesting that you start with the last line. It works, I enjoyed this story. I always start writing and never know where it is going to go.
