55 Flash Fiction Friday - The Rendezvous - 9/24/09

Each week G-Man of 55 Flash Fiction Friday challenges us to tell a story using only 55 words. I highly recommend it.

They met online
Lived close by
Traded lies
And someone else’s photos
Innocent chat became suggestion
Innuendo became Cyber sex
Both were married
Without joy
Meeting planned
Discreet little bar
He got there early
Eyes adjusted to dark
Surveyed the scene hopefully
One recognizable woman
Too familiar
Oh No!!!!
What was his sister doing here?

This is a little too close to my own reality. Good 55 topic though, and hopefully a warning! Welcome to the crazy group of 55vers :o)

This probably happens more often than we realize! I actually did meet my husband on the Internet. I knew he was sending me a real photo because it was not very flattering. This was in 2001, and we've been married a little over 4 years now. It's probably no worse than meeting in a bar. Maybe better? But, I got lucky and met an honest person.

Hah! That gave me a good laugh on a day when I really needed one. Thanks!

Whale: Okay, so this time you didn't use one of my photographs...however I do object to the cartoon depiction...even though it is actually a good likeness. HA
