Friday Fictioneer: Dinner

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

“What a day. The only thing that kept me going was your love,” he said. “I’m starving. The kitchen is the center of the house. I remember many happy days in my mother’s kitchen. What’s for dinner, my love?”

“Take out.” She didn’t sound happy.

“Take out?”

“I had a bad day too. Then I have to come home, cook and clean. You want a home cooked meal. Hire a cook.”

“By your wish, my love.”

“And a maid?” she asked hopefully.

“By your wish,” he said. “Can we eat now? I’m really hungry.”

“By your wish, my beloved.”
