A dash of colour #Fiction Monday

Rhea loved her bread plain, no sauce , jam or marmalade. Sometimes with butter or a slice of cheese maybe. And Raj loved his bread with a generous helping of jam or sauce. “We are like chalk and cheese” she exclaimed, “this ain’t working”. Raj was not one to give up.

A ray of hope #FridayFictioneers

He sat at the at the table, enjoying the scrumptious breakfast. “A wise decision, I am set for life.All it took was trapping a gullible lass in my love net and I am set for life. Hot meals, someone to make my bed, keep me warm in there, scrub my house. As beads of sweat… Continue reading A ray of hope #FridayFictioneers
