Eternal Love

I looked at my wife lovingly and said, “You look as radiant in that white nightgown as you did on the night we first met. As soon as I saw you, I knew we were meant to be together…forever.”

She smiled shyly and replied, “And that black suit still makes you appear as regal and handsome as you did on that magical moonlit night when I invited you in.”

“Good night my love,” I whispered softly.

“Good night my Count,” I heard her say as we both shut the lids of our coffins and called it a day.


99 words.

Written in response to the weekly flash fiction challenge at the Carrot Ranch Literary Community, hosted by the inimitable Charli Mills. Let us look at this week’s prompt in Charli’s own words:

February 1, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features something black and white. It could be a nun in a zebra monster truck, a rigid way of thinking, a bird in a tuxedo — be imaginative and go where the prompt leads.

    This was a really fun story! I had no idea where it was going and I loved the little reveal at the end. I also liked how you used the prompt and broke the black and white parts of it up into two descriptions. This has been one the more enjoyable flashes I’ve read so far this week 🙂
