PROMISES


FB3X Drabble Cascade Every TuesdayFB3X Drabble Cascades


Welcome to the FB3X Drabble Cascade, a weekly blog hop where we want you to share you drabbles, or flash fiction inspired by our word of the week. To join in, just post your piece to your blog/social media/website and add your link to the list with Title (Rating, Genre), e.g. A Little Bit of Fun (PG, Science Fiction) and then to perpetuate the cascade, add the list code to the bottom of your post :)


This week's word of the week is 'impede'.

Today's Drabble is dedicated to Susan
and is in answer to her comment on the last drabble 'Curses'.



PROMISES

The new patio base had been prepared. Dug out to the perfect level, soil tamped, gravel added, then rebar and wood framing before the cement pour.
Denny wiped the sweat from his brow. Waiting for the cement truck to arrive he surveyed his back yard and smiled. He could envision the fire pit, and family cookouts, just as Janet had designed it.
Kneeling, Denny placed his hand on the gravel pad in an almost caressing way.
I told you I'd have the final word. You made a promise when you vowed to honor and obey. Divorce was never, an option!

Okay, so I'm blogging when I'm supposed to be taking a break. 
Honestly, it's impossible to take a complete break 
from the computer when you've just released two books. 
Murder & Obsession
Parallels: Felix Was Here
I've been trying to stay on top of things and 
I've used FB and Twitter to keep the 'momentum' going. LOL
Am I writing? Yes, and this is just a little post.

  10. Yolanda, I haven't participated in a flash fiction hop. This is intriguing. Will you supply more or is it up to the readers to fill in their own twisted endings like some did, which by the way, are fabulous. I wouldn't have thought along these lines, but it sure makes for a creepy scene. Thanks for visiting and congrats on your two new book releases. Please let me know, if I can help you with your book promo in anyway. Have a good week!

  11. Yikes! She really should have considered more carefully. Never ask for a divorce when there's construction going on nearby...
