For Friday Fictioneers




Oh, sweetheart, look.

At what?

That bench, how romantic.

Graffiti, romantic?

No no no, it’s modernistic impressionism created by an inspired romanticist.

If you say so!

Come, my love, let me sit with you perched upon my lap. We can turn our backs on the hustle and bustle of the city and gaze at the vista before us.

It’s just a muddy patch covered in litter.

No no no, it’s a reminder of lives we once … erm … erm …

What’s the matter?

I’m sorry dearest, my flames of passion have been extinguished.


I seem to be sitting in a puddle.

    I’m sure the flames can be easily rekindled. Once he’s dried out.

    Reality “sits” in it at some point and, then off go the rose-colored blinders! Fabulous parable/story Keith.

        It’s because you always notice the best bits within a photo prompt.

    Hopefully the puddle was only rain water. 😉

    Nothing like a soggy bottom to dampen the spirits of spontaneous romance. Hilarious.

    The water is part of the artistic charm and romantic beauty. I hope these two can get on the same page soon. 🙂 Well done, Keith.

      I nearly replied with something naughty, but that would never do in such polite company! Cheers, Angela.

    Never even noticed the puddle! Another mismatch: a romanticist and a realist 😦 Maybe she’ll laugh and he can begin again 🙂
