A Rosey moment …

for Friday Fictioneers



ROSEY LARGE BWP‘Rosey’ whispered Helen, ‘it’s a secret but I must tell someone. Steve said Polly spoke to Charlie who said Jane’s pregnant!’

‘Mum’s the word!’ giggled Rosey.

She had to phone Amanda.

‘Helen said Steve’s got Jane … no, Polly preggers!’ spluttered Rosey. 

‘Wow!’ yelled Amanda. She rushed to the pub.

Barmaid Brenda was pouring drinks.

‘Keep it to yourself, but ….. !’

It was so noisy, Brenda had difficulty hearing, but within minutes what she thought she heard was the buzz-of-the-bar!

In walked Rosey.

‘Chardonnay please!‘

‘You shouldn’t drink!’ shouted Linda.

‘How’s the morning sickness?’ chuckled Jimbo!

 Everybody cheered!

Rosey’s face was a picture!

    At this rate, they’ll never figure out it’s Jane . . . wait, or is it ….? Great story!

    Ha ha. It’s amazing how a story changes when it goes through the rumor mill. Poor Rosey.

    What a great take on the prompt, Keith. Thanks for the smile. And it’s good to see Rosey again.

    Classic case of what goes around comes around — and quick in this story! Nice diversion for Jane 🙂

    Another reason to remember that the best way to keep something secret is to keep it to yourself. If no one else knows, no one else can blab!

    “A secret is something that everyone tells everyone not to tell anyone.”
    Poor Rosey.
    Some people just don’t keep the privacy.

    Here is my story- The Red T-Shirt

    Dear Keith,

    Gossip has a way of backfiring, doesn’t it? Delightful story. Pregnant with humor and truth. Your story delivers.

    Hilarious. I love Rosey and you write her so well. And I lost count of who said what in the first line, so can you blame Brenda?

    Haha! Big smile for that story, Keith. A lovely turn-around from gossiper to gossiped-about. I don’t know how you cram so much detail into a mere 100 words!

    I can hardly believe it, Rosey’s usually so discreet and dependable 😉

    Nice piece of situation comedy. Chinese Whispers was a fun game when we were children, much better than Chinese Burns.
    Loved the story.

      It was fun, I remember it well. I remember Chinese burns too, but not with the same affection!! Cheers James.

    That’s how it happens (haha). I think the barmaid’s my favorite character though. I loved this one!

    That was a funny twisting tale for sure! 🙂 Have a great week.
