Friday Fictioneers -the Husband

Photo prompt CEAyr

“You drag me to these markets every, bloody, weekend! Nothing ever changes!” moans David, lagging behind his wife.

Linda turns to face her ‘dragging his heels’ husband and yells “Calm down! It is the one thing I ask you to do with me. How does it hurt you? Really!”

Then with wide staring eyes and gaping mouth, Linda watches her husband disappear into the sudden sinkhole, enveloped in a sand coffin. Before managing even to scream, the hole closes over David.

“Right! That’s different.” Linda chuckles and shaking her head, wanders off to listen to the band.

  1. No love lost there!
    Well written, though I’d say the second line of the third paragraph needs clarifying. Before who can’t manage a scream? Before she can even scream he disappears? Or a new paragraph: before David can even scream, the hole closes up over him. Skip the “even manage” and you’ll have a couple of extra words.

    Anyway, thanks for your visit to my blog and for following. 🙂
