Sunday Photo Fiction: This Bud is for . . .?


He bought the bud for her, but he gave it to me.

She didn’t deserve it.

She was out right obnoxious. Certainly no lady.

She cheated on him then bragged about it to his friends and family, with him standing right there.

He’s a little slow, said he loved her and hoped she’d change.

She didn’t.

Came home to find her in bed with some hitchhiker she’d picked up on the road.

He finally got the message and walked out.

Came directly to me. Said he was wrong and would I forgive him.

Gave me the rose bud.

We’d been together for 10 years, had a mortgage with a big back yard, three children, a dog and two cats.

I smiled sweetly, took the bud and made him eat it.

The End
