Love You Less
I arrive home early from work to find candles burning, romantic music, rose petals strewn across our hardwood floor.
What? You were never this romantic.
The sounds draw me to our bedroom, to you half-dressed with my best friend.
“Loves me not, I guess.”
You look up from kisses, drowsy with love. “Honey? You’re early. Um. I can explain.”
“Great. Now you can’t be mad at me for hitting your car.”
“What? When?” You start to get up. Now, you’re worried. You and that car.
“In about thirty seconds.” I wave and go. You were never that smart, either.

A well-deserved treat! 🙂And, perhaps, a good riddance too.
Great story, Anne.
A good way to get rid of some anger 🙂
Well, I dunno about “good.” 😉 Thanks for visiting and commenting.
Full of piss and vinegar
Thanks Neil. LOL I had to look up that phrase though. =D
I hope she totally destroys it.
Or, rather, goes to a lawyer and gets everything he has…
Haha. Yeah. If she’s smart, she’ll drive away and get him that way. Decisions, decisions. LOL now I’m starting to want to continue the narrative in my brain anyway.
A well deserved “accident” I’d say. Let’s see him contest that in court. Good one. Made me smile.
I like it! He deserves whatever he gets.
Thanks Jill. Agreed.
Funny, if hard-hearted! What a couple! I mean he’s a b*****d but she’s so cool you can’t imagine she loved him very much. I think your closing paragraph is hilarious!
Thanks Penny. Glad you liked it!
Nicely done – oh yes his car is going to get it! 🙂
Thanks Anna. Yeah, not looking good for him or his car. 🙂
Great last line. I love where you took those rose petals, although I don’t think your character did. Kudos.
Thanks Alicia. Agreed.
Nice take on the prompt and applause for her composed reaction 😀
She should have hit him… with the car 🙂
Ha! Excellent ending.
Humor is always welcome in a really bad situation. Your heroine is superb.
Of course there is nothing to explain. Perhaps she should hit the ‘best friends’ car also.
A fun farce in a way.
I enjoyed your characters matter of fact attitude, and humor.
