5 Minute Freewrite Day 585: Tart

in #freewrite4 years ago


The four friends were sitting around the small table, each eyeing the tiny box in the middle of it. The things you could see in their faces were so varied that it would be quite hard to guess any common feeling. There was some fear, some anger, a little anxiety and a lot of hunger, and turned into metaphorical knives, they were thrown towards the center of their current world: a blue cardboard with fine calligraphy and a teal lace.

One thought was common among them, they remembered that old western movie with the four guys in a circle, guns out, waiting for any movement as an excuse to be the first one shooting. In this case, no guns but with other ways to hurt.

One pair of lips opened slightly, just enough to mutter words loud enough for the other 3 to listen:

So, why is there only ONE tart?

LOL!! Surely a tart worth dying for. The lace (not white, but teal?), the cardboard, the calligraphy--wait a minute. This doesn't sound home-made. Maybe it's NOT a tart worth dying for.
Love the reference to one of the best scenes in all of cinematic history, with the three guys (four if you count the cat) in "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,"

Great story! I love the image I have of four manly men on the verge of violence over a girly box on the table.

Hilarious -- good choice of photo, too! I was not ready for the ending, but it was the right question to ask before it all went to pieces!

Hey - you got my upvote! :D
