For Sale – Friday Fictioneers

AnElephantCant believe what he reads here
Lovely Rochelle is away on vacation
He hopes that she knows
Wherever she goes
The photo prompts always provide great inspiration

Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Presented weekly, usually by runaway Rochelle, this is a fabulous festival of flash fiction.
And a short story from ASadElephant.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
That’s it.

For Sale

Who can that be, he asks, irritated.
The agent, silly! We have to sell this house to buy a bigger one.
She is gloriously blooming, after five years of disappointment.
Sit, he tells her with a grin, put your feet up.
She ruffles his hair.
What have you been up to?
She is laughing, but her eyes are not.
She is insanely, needlessly jealous.
Apart from one stupid occasion, two years ago, which he bitterly regrets.
A real bunny-boiler!
He has never told his wife, she would not forgive him.
This is Ms Landis, says the agent.
Hello again, handsome.
