FFF Read My Lips

Happy Valentine’s Day!  It’s time for Flash Fiction Friday, when the talented Tom from Three Spelling Mistakes challenges us to write what a photo inspires us to write!  Pop over to his blog to see what he and other wonderful writers made of this photo.  My take is below. 

Here’s this week’s challenge: 

Word Limit: 100
Word Bonus: +100 for every time you’ve had your heart broken.
Required Word: Truth
Forbidden Word: Love

Extra Credit: Tell us your Valentine’s Day plans!


“What are you two doing?” My handsome room mate inquired when he got home from work.   

“Making cupcakes with those ghastly little Valentine’s hearts on top,” my friend Sally told him.  He leaned over to read the sayings and steal a cupcake. 

“Hey!  These aren’t romantic!  All the sayings are… mean!” He complained. 

“Well… it’s a party for single women.  We’re not into romance,” I explained. 

He shook his head, heading to his room. “I’m here to help whenever you’re ready!” 

“You should tell him the truth,” Sally pointed out.  

“What… and ruin our friendship?  Not a chance,” I replied. 
100 words.  If I kept writing 100 for each heart break?  You’d have a tome on your hands!  

Hubby and I had our usual indoor picnic with decadent treats and TV.  Read about a past one here for the list of delectable delicious delights we brought home and devoured!  Hope you had a fun day!

  1. Short but sweet. Happy V day .

  2. Great, short, and sweet.
    By the way, your background looks like the desert north of Los Angeles, in San Bernadino county, through Las Vegas. Given many a road head in that desert on the way to Las Vegas.

  3. Tom says:

    Perhaps next time she can orchestrate things so the one he steals has a secret message on it… 😉

  4. Simplicity says:
