It is Friday Fictioneer time…
Following Rochelle’s kind invitation, emmy tries to rise to the occasion, not miss a step, tread lightly, and follow the flow.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
Champagne on the House
We leave our dead end flat, park the pickup in the far lot and walk to the restaurant.
The waitress greets us very warmly.
“Do you know her?” He asks, curious.
“No, but she believes she does.”
She comes back with two flutes of champagne, grins, says “Compliments of the boss”, then walks away.
“Who the hell are you?” He says, poking fun.
“I have no idea… Maybe in a parallel universe I am someone famous… or important” I shrug but I wonder, smiling all around.
“Or they see your future” he chuckles, raising his glass to mine.
I like this place, The Rabbit Hole Café.
