#FridayFictioneers – 19/5/17 – Fixtures and Fittings

with 26 comments

Every Wednesday Rochelle Wisoff-Fields publishes a photo prompt to inspire writers to write 100-words of flash fiction or poetry.

At any point during the following week, the Friday Fictioneers post their 100-word tales. Read the other stories by clicking below.

As usual, it took a while for any ideas to form, and then I came up with the below. Is this a story? Perhaps more of a vingette. Does it work? Let me know.

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and Roger Butolt for this week’s photo.

Fixtures and Fittings

(Genre: general fiction; 100-words)

‘Why do we always come here?’

‘It’s where we had our first date.’

‘And our last.’

‘They know us.’

‘We love the food.’

‘They leave us alone and don’t mind us poring over paperwork.’

‘And the coffee’s good.’

‘And the coffee’s good!’

‘We should try somewhere else.’

‘It wouldn’t be as comfortable.’

‘Which is why we should make the effort.’

‘Maybe.’

‘You’re too non-committal.’

‘You’re too rigid.’

‘Here we go.’

‘And that’s another thing going for his place; they don’t mind our arguments.’

‘There’s something I need to say.’

‘Me too.’

‘I don’t want us to get divorced.’

‘Me either.’

 A Divided House

(Genre: Humour, 100-words)

‘It was Macey who said we should tunnel into the hill, to get more space. I was all for stretching along the cliff, or building out, to make the most of the view. But Macey said it was dangerous. Someone might fall off the balcony during one of our parties, get hurt, even die. She was right of course. The interior rooms are cool in summer and hold the heat in winter. The back of the house is all hers. She’s had half of everything else. It’s a bit unfair of her now to complain about the lack of light.’
