Friday Fictioneers – Kitchen Island

12 June, 2015


You know you’ve been FriFicing for a while when you remember Rochelle‘s prompt pic re-runs from the first time round! Yes, it’s summer redux season, and this week’s rewind pic is this one:



if you’re curious to know what 100 words I produced this week, well read on…



Born the same day in the same hospital, we were destined to be together. When we bought this house, our bookshelves, our furniture, our friends, our diaries, our lives, all merged. No matter who bought what or who met whom first, everything was shared. Even our birthdays.

I sit on a three-legged stool at the breakfast island and open another beer. The ticking clock punctuates the silent evening. Shouldn’t some guests have arrived by now? Or will they all attend her birthday party in her new kitchen in her new house? The one she bought with him when we split.



  1. Excellent! Sounds like their “shared” lives set them up for this.

  2. Doomed from the beginning? This picture cries out for a lonely tale – you did this one well.

  3. Ooh, the hurt and resentment is palpable. Great writing!

  4. A reminder that friends seem to get ‘re-distributed’ along with the the relationship and the goods and chattels. Nicely done.

  5. Oh. You can feel the bitterness there. Too bad they couldn’t work out their differences. Maybe, after all that was shared, their differences could have made them stronger, more unique.

    • All relationships need differences and separate parts of life to keep them going. Maybe these two didn’t have enough – we’ll never know (unless I write the prequel!)

      • I agree. Our differences make us stronger, if we let them. Ah well. I like wondering!

  6. That’s so sad. Where is his brother? His best friend? Surely she didn’t get everyone!

  7. Oh that’s sad. They were together so long. Great story ending, however.

  8. Good story TRG, but so sad for him. I think every couple need some different friends of their own. Great story! Nan

  9. Nicely put
