Satisfied with her work, Steph steps back to survey the boxes and articles of clothing stacked on the lawn. Atop the stack, a sheet of construction paper bears the words, “You can go anywhere you like, but you can’t stay here.”
“That is harsh,” her friend Becca says.
“Well, he should have moved out months ago.”
The two friends go back into the house to drink beer and wait for Steve to return.
This picture reminded me of maybe the best part of a really bad breakup: the bonfire.
Kidding! I would never set another person’s stuff on fire. I would also never admit to even thinking of such a thing, in a blog post, for anyone to read…. That would just be silly.
In all seriousness, thanks Rochelle and Roger for another inspiring prompt!

I don’t think Steve’s return is going to go well
Given that he should have moved out before this, I don’t think Steve will be surprised.
Just in time for Bonfire night, might as well make the most of it!
Remember, remember… 😉
When she’s done, she’s really done, isn’t she? I like a girl who doesn’t take any prisoners.
Good for her! Time to move out, Steve and time for her to move on!
This puts me in mind one of my favorite movie scenes ever when Angela Bassette plays the jilted wife and burns her husband’s clothes and car. It was one of those scenes that makes you want to stand up and cheer.
Good story, Anne.
Um … you know you said that out loud, yeah? 👀 Nice one.
Said what now? 😉
I have a feeling he overstayed his welcome anyway. Good for her!
Goodbye, Steve! Looks like this gal has made up her mind. Good story 😊
Having her friend there for encouragement and support is a great idea. Steve can’t try to work his charms on her with her friend there. I wonder what Steve did that broke the camel’s back?
Boom! Seems she has at last lost her patience with him.
