100 words

for Friday Fictioneers on a Wednesday which is hosted by Rochelle.





Geoff the chef made a cutting remark about his assistant’s knife skills. Katrina appeared somewhat upset although it may have been something to do with the onion she was attempting to chop.

He pointed to the pile of crudely cut carrots and partly peeled potatoes. He criticised her cabbage and mocked her mushrooms.

As Katrina wiped the tears from her cheeks, her expression changed from downcast to displeased. She wiped the blade of her knife then lunged toward Geoff, plunging it into his loin. 

His expensive loin of prime lamb was ruined.

Katrina’s thinking of becoming a circus knife thrower.

    A wonderful play on words, Keith. I hope Katrina becomes the world’s best knife thrower.

    Keith love the clever consonance (see what I did there?) in your story. He’s lucky she chose the lamb’s loin πŸ™‚

    what a relief! if anything, it was the expensive loin of prime lamb and not his precious one that got ruined.

    Great story Keith and I love the use of alliteration, old Geoff πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ³ had a lucky escape there πŸ˜ƒ

    Brilliant from the puns to the alliteration to the punchline. That was great.

    I never understand how angry critical Chefs survive in any kitchen , surely the meat suggests blood bath.

    Great title, Keith and I’m relieved that it was the loin of lamb which got the knife.

    Haha. Lovely. Could have been something far more sinister. Great twist. Shame about the loin but practice makes perfect. She’s well on her way.

    OMG!! This one was quite that twist to the tale.
    God bless, Geoff!! He was spared for once.
    Loved it. And the voice memo adds to a whole new visual treat, seriously!
