CAUTION: GRAPHIC TALE
“Richard, just tell her already! I’m done waiting!”
“Shay! Will you calm down? I’m trying to have a conversation with my wife.”
“Your wife? Really, Richard?”
“Shay! I swear…”
“Forget this! I’ll tell her.” She looks at me. “Richard and I are in love. He’s leaving you for me.”
“I told you, Richard. I am done waiting!” They start to argue.
Shocked, I walk over to the desk and open the top drawer.
I glance at the faces of my husband and best friend, both frozen by a gunshot to the head.
The wait is over.
This is my offering for Moral Mondays hosted by Nortina. This week’s prompt is
Harsh words stir up anger
Your assignment is to write a story/fable (in any genre) that will teach this lesson.
No need to use the moral in your post, just write the story and let your readers learn the lesson all on their own.
Please limit your fable to 100 words.
After you’ve written your 100-word fable, ping back to this prompt page by simply pasting this link somewhere on your post.
Tag your story Moral Mondays so we can find you in the WordPress Reader! You can even use the badge to make your post more visible.
