A tiny tale …

for Friday Fictioneers




The security guy eyed Dave up and down then let him enter the jewellery store. Everything went exactly to plan. Minutes later he slipped out and disappeared into the crowd.  Just the handover left to do.

He waited by the fountain.  She arrived on time. They stood face-to-face.  His eyes flicked left then right.  From his pocket, he discretely produced a box. 

“Suzie darlin, will ya marry me?”

“Fought you’d never bloody ask!”  she yelled.

“Thank Gawd, cost me a month’s dosh!  Just enough left for a burger.  Comin’?”

The MacD’s girl eyed Dave up and down. 

“Oy,  e’s taken”  bellowed Suzie.

    Nice misdirection to start. So romantic – it sounds like they were made for one another.

    I thought it was going to be a heist story but you turned it into a delightful romance 🙂

    You got me with this one, Keith. Thought he was about to rob the jewellery store. Well done.
    Best wishes,

    It started with a heist and ended with a ball and chain. Good one. It’s lots of fun.
