A Little Bit More to Go

Got today’s Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers in.  A bit of a change from my normal mood, but I write what the picture tells me.  Hope you enjoy it.


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Etol Bagam. Thank you Etol for the beautiful prompt!

A Little Bit More to Go

Just a little bit more to go. Then she’d know if she had won the bet.

They had agreed when they were still young, before they had ever been a pair, that if one made a bet, the other could always call it. It had been a game they played… The reality was that they just used it to spend more time with each other.

Bet it takes 20 minutes to get to the top floor of that building. And together they’d go up the stairs to find out.

Bet we don’t see three red houses in a row for this entire street. And together they’d drive along, his hand over hers counting house colors.

Bet there are over 2,000 posts on that fence along this path.

They shared fifty years together, forty of them married, and Dominique was pretty sure he would have called this one. It wouldn’t do to let him down now.

Especially not with just a little bit more to go.

    1. Thanks for reading. It was actually a sad story because her husband had already passed. I tried to make that subtle, but I think I went too subtle after reading everybody’s comments on it. Either way, this is how she remembers him, so it’s how they are still “together.”

      Thanks for reading!
