This is the first time I am writing for Friday Fictioneers,hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields,an amazing writer herself 🙂
Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)The following photo prompt has been provided by Douglas M Mcllroy ,for the challenge.
Here is my 100 word story plus 1(for the title) 🙂
“EDDIE! Did you clean the pond?!”
It was always the same.
Agnes was beautiful but loved to nag. Eddie, her husband, was a gentle soul.
Neighbours hoped that some day she would really leave Eddie and go, as she often threatened.
Her only love- the Koi pond.
When Eddie got posted to the neighbouring town, he went alone. Neighbours understood the reason.
Soon, a man was noticed Agnes, at all hours.
Tongues wagged, when one night Agnes disappeared.
Later, they saw Eddie filling up the koi pond.
They nodded sagely, “Natural! He does not want to be reminded of Agnes.”
