It’s Friday again! I’ve spent the whole week decluttering the house and seem to have accidentally tidied up my hilarity, so no big laughs this week. Instead I thought I’d try something different. Hope you like it (I’m not sure if I do.)
In other news, my internet connection is still rubbish, so sorry that I haven’t read a lot of posts recently. I have them all stashed away in my inbox waiting for a time when trying to connect is less frustrating. I did manage to read last week’s Fictioneers and I will persevere again this week.
For those who don’t know, Friday Fictioneers is a challenge to write a 100 word story from a picture prompt. It’s hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, and anyone can play. Thanks for hosting, Rochelle! Check out the link at the end of my story to see what other fictioneers did with this week’s prompt.
Maud and the Beer Historian
This is the tale of Maud who adored Dorian, the beer historian. Dor was in awe. They bought a barn full of charm, but the cash Maud had stashed wasn’t enough for all the stuff she desired.
Maud saved for an Aga, while Dorian drank lager. She painted fences, while Dor lost his senses in a barrel of hops.
Maud bored with the barn’s charm over the years, and sampled Dor’s beers, discovering a taste for a barley-based ale. There ends this tale, with Dor and his amour drinking, and the late summer sun sinking behind the white picket fence.
