Friday 55 Flash Fiction #190 Valentine's Day....

"From A Secret Admirer" the card read with the dozen red roses.

Smiling to herself, she knew exactly who they were from, how lovely!

She would cook a special meal for her husband tonight.

Unfortunately, the card and the roses had to go,

she didn't want her husband to be jealous

or more importantly, suspicious!

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Whoops! Hope the special meal worked!

Actually I got a card from an unknown admirer this year. It turned out to be a marketing ploy from one of my suippliers at work - but it kept Kguessing for a while.

Nice 55

Here's mine.

What a shame to throw the roses away!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Shockdubz, glad you liked it.

I know Cloudia

It probably did Valerie because he has no idea what's going on, yet!

How exciting AJ, when did you tell him?

It is Cheshire Wife, I suppose she could keep them and pretend she bought them for herself.

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

oh poor thing, has to get rid of the roses, she should have just thanked HIM for them and he'd never admit he didn't send them!

smiles, bee

Daryl Edelstein said...

uh oh ...

Akelamalu said...

Hey that's a great idea Bee, I must remember that one ;)

Mmmmmm Daryl ;)

G-Man said...

Uh oh...Shenanigans!!
But what a dumb move sending something to her house!
Loved your 55 Ake

Brian Miller said...

Mama Zen said...

Great 55!

Banker Chick said...

You have been writing about wicked women lately, she should keep the roses,but make a great dinner.

anthonynorth said...

Yep, I think best to keep him in the dark.

Shrinky said...

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I had a friend in London who did ditch a dozen long stemmed roses, for that very reason - I jest you not! (Her lover must have been pretty thick to have ever sent them to her in the first place..)

"she didn't want her husband to be jealous

or more importantly, suspicious!"

Oh....good one, m'dear!!!

I always love your finishes!

Have a great weekend!!


Raven said...

Interesting twist there...and agreed: silly to leave so much evidence around.

Akelamalu said...

Yeah it was a dumb thing to do G-man, I'm sure you wouldn't make that mistake! ;)

I'm sure it would Brian ;)

Thanks Mama Zen x

I have and I don't know why Banker Chick :#

I think so too Anthony

Either he was stupid or he wanted her hubby to find out Shrinky :0

Glad you enjoyed it Ron x

Indeed Raven, got to get rid of the evidence.

I think I'd have to come up with a cover story to get to keep the flowers.
