Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 14 Valentine


Paying for the bouquet, Mark filled in the card.
“To Shelly, I love you, Mark” it said

Mark confirmed the date, time and delivery address, then left the florists.

“What flowers?” asked Shelly on Valentine’s Day.

As the florist repeated the delivery address Mark’s heart sank.

Debbie, his wife, was left wondering who Shelly was.

A very special birthday blessing for Gracie Jean.

Good 55. I watched an episode of CSI Miami last night where a similar mistake was made with a flower delivery that had deadly results.

Dear Nick, thankyou on behalf of Gracie Jean. I could imagine what I would do if I found myself in Debbie's position - it wouldn't be pleasant!
