Here we are another week, this time gathered at our tables on the virtual veranda of a large hotel. We’ve come here with our gracious and talented hostess, author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields to share our original stories. It’s the gathering for the weekly challenge of the Friday Fictioneers. This challenge is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to include a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. The prompt this week was supplied by Melanie Greenwood. Thanks Melanie.
The link for all the other stories is as follows:
Genre: Humor Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE PROPOSAL By P.S. Joshi
Elderly Richard was on bended knee on the hotel veranda. The sun glistened off the huge diamond in the ring he held in his shaking hand.
“Brenda, my beautiful darling, be my wife. I dearly love you even though we’ve known each other only two weeks.”
Brenda summoned moisture to her large blue eyes. “Oh, Richard, what a surprise. Of course I’ll marry you, you darling man.”
Richard rose with difficulty. “Brenda, dearest, you’ve made me the happiest man on earth.”
Once home and alone, Brenda took out her jeweler’s magnifying glass and closely examined the diamond for flaws. Perfect.
