One Night

In response to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Friday Fictioneers Challenge 02/10/23 to write a complete story in 100 words or less with a Beginning, Middle and End, using the picture prompt above.

He was tired. Frustrated. Angry and now, hopeful. She had left him a message. He didn’t know how she managed, yet each time he was on the very verge of giving up, she wrangled a way to drop a clue, leave a sign that he was on the right track. That she was still alive.

It had only been one night. An accidental meeting that had completely altered his life. They’d danced, eaten unfamiliar foods and tried a myriad of exotic tropical drinks. They had spent an otherworldly night together on his yacht, and then she was gone.

He hunted.

    I think he feels cheated out of the moment and is being tested.

    Sounds like she might be toying with him. Or maybe she genuinely does want him to find her. Nicely done.

    Yikes. Another one and done story. Only this guy has a yacht. The dude needs to move on.
    Well told, Gypsie.

    Nicely done, Gypsie. Kind of reminds me how a former boyfriend kept me around so long. Every time I was ready to leave, he up and got all romantic and stuff. Got old after awhile, though… (and I was younger and more naïve then, too!)

    1. Hi Dale and thank you. Yes, I’ve been in that situation as well. I will never understand that mindset to be sure. Thank you for reading and responding! 😊
