Friday Fictioneer: Chandelier
“Where did that come from?”
“It’s a birthday present?” Melissa proudly admired it.
“From whom? It’s not your birthday.”
“I bought it. It’s for when it is my birthday.”
“Where did you get the money?”
“I used our credit card.”
Eric stood with his hands on his hips and considered the chandelier. It spread out farther than the width of their round four-person dinning table. It hung so low he’d have to bend his head forward to eat. It was loud, obnoxious and old, and much too large for their one-bedroom apartment.
Finally he said, “I’m cancelling that credit card.”
