Friday Fictioneers – Kitchen

5 October, 2012

As always, thanks to Madison for running FriFic and for the prompt:

fiction, short reads, free reads, fresh fiction, kitchen scene

Exactly 100 words, all comments and criticisms welcome.

I don’t understand what her problem was. I gave her everything she wanted. Big house, nice car, two kids, the perfect lifestyle. Okay, work means I’m away a lot, but she never went short.

When she was on her fitness fad, I kitted out the garage, paid for a trainer. She started painting, I bought her all the kit. And her cookery course, that fateful cookery course. See this kitchen? Finished yesterday. Thirty five grand it cost. Designed by her, for her.

And now she will never use it. She’s taken the kids and moved in with the cookery teacher.

  1. You did a great job. I can really hear your character’s voice.

  2. I am with Marian, you did a great job. I liked the pace set. Very well done

  3. TheOthers1 permalink

    Oh dang! He was giving her things, but not time. I have a feel she wanted that more than the stuff. Great job on this.

  4. Of course she has, you idiot. You don’t actually give a flip about her, and you deserve it. 😉

    I love the planets hanging from the ceiling.

      i was pleased with this one, i wanted the challenge of a character who believes one thing and says it clearly, but even in 100 words the reader can see a different side.

      and i hadnt noticed the planets – i want them in MY kitchen!
