Flash Fiction Friday: Wrong Bird

Hello Creatures of the Night and welcome to another 100 word Flash Fiction Friday. I've had a hell of a job getting it up today but I finally managed so here I am flashing again.

Wrong Bird
This is fucking stupid Jake thought as he lay with his back to Susie. I thought that was what she wanted, she had dropped enough hints.
Jake inched back a little until their bodies touched and he could feel her trembling from all her crying. He desperately wanted to roll over, wrap his arms around her and tell her he would sort it in the morning but she had made it perfectly clear that until the problem was sorted I wasn’t to touch her.
Just because I bought her a parrot not a pair of fucking lovebirds.

Big mistake. He has some making up to do. I wonder how long she'll make him suffer for not getting the lovebirds.

Angelica Dawson said...

Aww. I'm sure they'll sort things out.

Jake's in trouble, oh boy, did he not listen to her? Poor guy. I'd like to read how he makes it up to her :)

diannehartsock said... he makes a run to the pet store in the morning for that exchange! It was a pretty big mistake. I'm sure she told him love birds. :)

LOL! Poor Jake. This made me laugh. I wonder how he will get out of this mess? ;-) I do believe he's in the dog house or rather the birdcage for this one. Great flash! :)

Oh dear, perhaps he can train the parrot to repeat 'l love you' and that will win her over! P.S. Love your new banner Jules!
