Flash Fiction Friday - The Wife

He rejected me. I feel stupid, he's so busy, I should have known.

I thought it would please him, I've planned it for days, chores undone, misplaced socks, crumpled shirts, the dress hire shop, fancy dress party I'd lied, and finally the note on the kitchen table detailing my failings, surely I deserved to be punished. But he didn't punish, he asked what was for dinner, said if I was too pushed we'd hire a domestic, said the uniform was nice and sat down with his laptop. I'm upstairs now, he'll come looking for me I know he will, he loves me.

Now pop over to Spanky and Tiggs to read more Flash Fiction stories

Good plot with so much desperation. I ache for the poor thing. You and Poppy were on a similar wavelength.

Hermione said...

What a cute outfit! Some guys just don't get it!


Measha said...

I liked this a lot. It's amazing at all of the different scenarios that come out of one picture.

Very emotional story revealing the distance created by indifference.

Yeah I think she is just fooling herself. (But I might be a little prejudiced.) Anyway, very nicely written.
