Thanks to Rochelle for Friday Fictioneers!
Clearly, Bill knew nothing about her after all this time. High tea on an observation deck? Nice for a tourist and someone of a certain age. For her, acrophobic and lacking a sweet tooth? Not so much.
She waited, stared at the multi-leveled sweet tray, feeling sour.
They should just end it.
“Sorry I’m late. Things happened at work.”
On a Sunday.
She thought of her cozy sea-looking bungalow with Twinkles purring on her lap.
“Tea’s nice,” Bill said.
“But I think we should end it.”

Good dialogue. They did have something in common after all – a desire to end the relationship!
Yes. Amicable ends are probably the best. 🙂 Thank you.
Nicely done, did they jump or just say goodbye and go home?
Well, she has Twinkles……
A present they both wanted
Yes, definitely seems that way.
Thanks, Neil! 🙂
Well they might technically have been a little nearer heaven that day but their relationship definitely wasn’t made there! And Twinkles will be wanting his supper and her lap. Lovely pen picture.
I’ve never heard the phrase “pen picture;” always good to learn something new.
Thanks so much, Jilly!
I think maybe Bill knew exactly what he was doing!
Quite possibly, if he’s the very manipulative type, which he could be. To set her up somewhere she’d hate would certainly make breaking up easier.
Thanks, Iain! 🙂
At least they can agree on something. Well done.
It’s always nice when both people see it the same way 🙂
Thank you, Linda! 🙂
And they both lived happily ever after! 🙂
Mutually done, that works
I think so too. Thank you, Michael!
At least they were on the same page with ending it. If only all endings were this amicable and clear.
Very true! Thank you, Fatima!
