It’s time once again, for the weekly, 100 word exercise known as the ”Friday Fictioneers”. Go HERE to read the stories or submit one of your own.

Sliding up the headboard, she leaned into the pillows to stare at the window, her own thoughts a form of torture. Just what was she trying to save? A house, a sham marriage,  social status? It was all a sham, she knew that now. He gave her a magnificent house and anything else she wanted. What he didn’t offer was fidelity.

She had seen proof of his conquests, and she deserved better. It was time to wrap her heart in ice where he was concerned and move on.

  1. Nice use of the prompt/ice throughout. My guess is she’ll freeze him out. :-). He deserves it!

    Was she a “trophy wife?” I thought they all had pool boys, gardeners, and such as a form or retaliation. I suppose we are moving toward that “Hell Freezes Over” step in this relationship. Very well written.

  6. Hi Turnip,
    Liked the metaphor of turning your heart cold as ice. Great relationship heartbreak story. Ron

    I like a girl who can make up her own mind and stick to it. Nice work.

    Always let the fire melt the ice. She should have kicked his ass to the curb or got herself a boy toy….Nice Job!

  10. A said story for the relationship ended. Yet empowering for the wife.

  11. SocietyRed says:

    Very sad and cold. Perfect!
