“I passed!” Julie’s eyes shone as she served John coffee.
“I knew it!” John squeezed her hand. “How are you celebrating?”
“I have a…a date.”
“Oh.” John stood up.
“Don’t go! Please?” Julie muttered.
John fidgeted whilst Julie waited tables.
She returned. “I am nervous about my blind date.”
“Why go on a blind date?”
“I don’t know any nice guys.”
“So, I’m not a nice guy?”
Julie blushed. “I didn’t say that.”
“Come out with me.” He asserted.
Julie’s eyes sparkled.
He was one step closer his goal – a qualified wife who was used to serving.
I have a confession, I was traveling and when I came back I dropped in on Rochelle’s page and her story which led me to wmqcolby’s story, the stimulating comment section and one thing led to another – what I am trying to say is that this story of John and Julie is inspired by Stood up? and Blind Date? And the ensuing discussion of course 😉 Sorry just couldn’t resist 😀
Written for Friday Fictioneers – a story in 100 words or less. Thanks to Lucy Fridkin for the photo prompt and Rochelle for hosting the challenge. You can read the other stories here
Thanks for reading and don’t forget to let me know what you thought!
Just back from a wedding and before that went to meet my mum. Small wonder that I am feeling rather well rounded. Well more than usual 😉 At the airport, the lady at the security check was about my age and yet had a size zero (perhaps minus) figure. I couldn’t help remarking how slim she was (much to my surprise for it is quite against my nature to speak to complete strangers). She was most unhappy and despairing.’
What should I do? No matter how much I eat I don’t put on weight. Everyone keeps taunting me.’
When I told her that people were jealous she was taken aback and followed me to the other side. ‘Really?’
Oh well some people have all the luck and don’t even know it 😀
And another one to aid guiltless binging during the holiday season 😉
