The Ideal Couple



This is where we first met. God you were beautiful back then. Our friends said we were the ideal couple, made for each other. I believed them. Six weeks after that first meeting we were married. What a wonderful day. Everything was simply perfect. How so terribly wrong was I. Within a week I knew I’d made a mistake. I should have left, made a clean break, but I never had the courage, not until today. So, now it’s over, I’m back here for a celebratory drink. Might even manage two, before they find your body and then find me.


A 100 word story for this week’s prompt from Friday Fictioneers.



Now that I'm retired I have more time to devote to writing my blog and creating short stories.

  1. Many years ago my gran told me this joke: 100th wedding anniversary of a couple, great gathering of children, grand-children, great-gran-kids, etc. Someone asks the old man “How did you make it to this day together? Have you ever wanted to divorce?” “To divorce?! No. To kill her – oh yes!” – replied the man.


I look forward to reading your comments
