Friday Fictioneers – Love in store

Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Love in store

Spenser was a hunk, with dark hair and eyes, and a body sculpted by Praxiteles. He swaggered up to Laura, diminutive, bright, management potential.

“I’ve got tickets for a show tonight. Come with me?”

Laura shook her head.

“Thanks, Spense, but I’m busy.”

“Sure, Babe.”

Laura hoped her manager, Craig, would notice her refusal, and ask her out. She loved his gentleness.

Instead Craig said “I must have a word with Estelle,” and sidled across the floor.

“Estelle. Would you like to dine with me at The Purple Pig this evening?”

But, alas, glamorous Estelle only had eyes for – Spenser.
