WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK

 

It’s only Wednesday and I’m ready for Friday Fictioneers!  We gathered every week to share stories of 100 words.  We are hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple.  Here’s my 100 words inspired by the photo prompt from Erin Leary.

She knew exactly what she was going to do.  She opened the fridge and set the ingredients on the counter – sirloin steak, bacon, pearl onions, sage and thyme. Last but not least, the precious white mushrooms.  She will cook him the best sirloin beef burgundy of his life.

She had found them on her walk, their white heads poking through pine needles.   She knew enough to keep Hunter away from them.  That dog will eat anything.

A smile broke out on her face.  Her eyes shone. Happy at last!  She started slicing the white magic, whistling as she worked.

 

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

  1. Such a great solution when the prenup is not in your favor.. cook well and spice it up with some hemlock.. 🙂

  2. Even creepier than the story is pairing it with that song! Now if it had been the witch with the apple… 🙂

    Dear Hafong,

    Hunter is the subtle key to your story’s lock. I love it. Very well done.

    Aloha,

    Doug

    Heh, that is some recipe. Whistle while you work indeed.

  5. Sounds like one hell of an omelet.

  6. Whatever has he done wrong! Good story.

  7. Dear Lily,

    I suspect this will also be the last Beef Burgundy of his life. Subtle and creepy. Like the sirloin, well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    Remind me to pass on any dinner invitations at her house… Very well done.

  9. I don’t see her as trying to kill this man. The mushrooms are “magic” not deadly. She wants to have a really good time. 😀 Haha!

    Whistle while you work! Yes, I thought of Snow White before even seeing the video. This is great, Lily! Made me smile.

  11. Gee, you all are so snarky.
    Can’t she just be making a nice dinner for an about to be former friend?
    Ha.

    Is this love or something more sinister? I’ll never know since her motivation in keeping Hunter away from those mushrooms is not explained. 🙂
