Boxed In

Written for this week's Lillie McFerrin Writes Five Sentence Fiction prompt. Word: FURIOUS


The furious pulse of hail thrashing the window was oddly calming, pulling her out of her muddled head.

He’d whispered midnight assurances into her hair, expertly negotiating the removal of her clothes and inhibitions. From then on he was vague plans, premeditated arguments, and the scowl on her mother’s face.

She never divulged that his practiced ambivalence stimulated her; that she fed off the mayhem of this tilted, insecure relationship. Now he's threatening to ruin it all with that hinged box containing the promise of a new monogram, Sunday night meatloaf and joint checking.

  1. I love this, and I totally get it too. We always want the one who is elusive, until they want us. After all, where's the romance in meatloaf! ;)

    I was so happy to see you here! I said to myself, "Hey, it's Ivy! YAY!!" xx
