Friday Fictioneers

Posted Thursday 19 May

Thank you to Rochelle for hosting and J Hardy Carroll for the photo


For five long years they had shared short moments of elation followed by periods of deepest despair. But today day things were different. Today she smiled. He smiled. They knew beyond doubt it was definitely over. The end of a difficult relationship.  With laughter in their voices, they said as one, ‘I never want to see you again!’

With a spring in her step, she left the doctor’s surgery knowing that she had sat in that waiting room for the last time.

  1. Hi Keith - oh yes ... that's been said - a job finished with and a problem over ... she can move on and he can stop worrying, and close that part of the file. Cheers Hilary

    1. She had been visiting her doctor for five long years, and today she got the all clear. So off she went rejoicing! Sorry to confuse you Patricia

  5. Nice one! I didn't look at the photo first, so that ending came as a great little twist.

  6. This is the very best kind of parting, problem resolved, healing done, both moving on in their respective roles in life. What a wonderful joy that would indeed be!

  10. You lured me right into the trap of thinking divorce, separation...? And then realization dawned. Such a happy separation, great story, I love it.

  11. I'm with Ga: right until the end I figured this meant divorce. Well done! You really hit another one out of the park, as we say in the US. ~grin~ Happy writing!
