A flash of fiction …

for Friday Fictioneers



The answer’s no.

I haven’t asked you yet.

You’re about to, I know that expression.

I just need you to …

You want me to go outside, don’t you.

Well …

In the freezing cold, right?

Yes, but …

No but!

I need you to nip to the shop.

It’s too cold.

Well, wear a coat.

It’s starting to snow.

Wear a hat too.

Why don’t you go?

Because erm …

Because it freezing and you want to stay in the warm.

Actually, I’m planning a surprise for when you return.

What surprise?

You know!

What, that?


Right, I’ll be as quick as I can!


Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Dale Rogerson for the photo.

    Awww … a treat after his chore. LOLOL
    I think most men can endure the cold better than women.
    However, that ‘That’ is always an incentive.
    Be Safe … Isadora 😎

    Another adorable story told in dialogue! Seems to be a trend this week. I have a feeling this one will end well for all involved!
