Hurray for Fridays! It’s been a long week here, at least for me! So, we haven’t done these for a while, b ut we’re back into doing the 100 world story challenges from Julia’s Place. The challenge is to write a 100 word story using a prompt. This week the prompt is ”…you said you’d do WHAT?….” If you would like to take part, scroll down to the bottom for the rules!
This week we have myself, LimebirdCat, LimebirdNeeks, LimebirdRaven and LimebirdVanessa taking part.
“You said you’d do WHAT?” I felt myself shouting.
“It’s just a loan until she gets paid, it’s no big deal Zo”
“It is a big deal Kyle, seriously, why can’t you see that she’s taking advantage of you?”
“She isn’t. I love her you know, I wish you two would get along. ”
“You know she hates me right?”
“Don’t be stupid, she doesn’t hate you, you’re my best friend. It seems like you’re the one with the problem.”
“You can be really immature sometimes Zoe.”
As he walked away, I could feel my stomach churning. Why couldn’t he love me instead.
The telling curvature of the red, yielding flesh at its head was simply too much for Gloria. The very thought of touching it, caressing it brought her out in a blush the same colour of what she beheld.
“You said you’d do WHAT? It’s the smallest one!” interjected Stanley, appearing at her side.
“I can’t help myself, Stan” she tried to explain, fanning herself in vain with the winner’s rosette.
“But I simply can’t resist a good radish”
With that, she delicately slipped the round, purple material of the first prize rosette under the small, unassuming vegetable.
“- And it’s not always size that matters”
“You said you’d do what??” I couldn’t believe my ears. I had to sit down I was laughing so hard. My husband looked so confused.
“I didn’t say I’d do it, I said we’d do it!” He said, pleading.
“Meaning I’d do it while you play golf.”
He shook his head. “No I won‘t.”
I nodded. “You’re right about that, have you forgotten that I’m leaving next Friday? I’m not going to be here.”
He looked stricken. I patted his back as I walked past.
“So 16 five year olds will be here Saturday for a sleep-over party! Aren’t you just the best daddy ever?”
“How was school today, sweetheart?”
“Fine, Mom. How was your day?”
“It was okay. I got your favorite dinner for tonight while I was at the grocery store.”
“You’re kidding! Roast beast with Who-pudding?”
Mom laughs, “No sweetheart. You’ve been reading too much Dr. Seuss! I got you perrogies with ketchup , lasagna with soy meat and all the fixins for your favorite salad.”
Gina jumps up and down with excitement and hugs her mom. “Thanks so much! Can I invite Tim over? I told him we could get married tonight after dinner.”
“I’m sorry. You said you’d do WHAT?”
“You said you’d do WHAT?”
“Without consulting me?”
“She needed a decision quickly.”
“We have no room for a dog Michael!”
“It’s only a puppy.”
“Puppies grow into dogs.”
“I’m not stupid.”
“You are if you think it’s ok to offer a home to a dog without consulting your wife!”
“He’s very cute.”
“I don’t care how cute he is, he’s not coming here…he’s already here isn’t he.”
Michael left the room and returned with a wriggling ball of fluff. “Look at him Jen.”
“I’m not going to change my…oh…oh my…well, I suppose…let’s call him Bruno!”
