Watching Mark turn his makeshift spit she pitied poor defenseless Thumper, moreover identified. She plotted her escape, yearned to be soaking in a tub and ordering room service. But she’d lost the bet.
“Why must we catch our dinner?” lip protruding in protest.
“All part of the experience Tiff” he smirked
“There’s no way I’m eating that. Take me home.”
“Sorry Babe, deals a deal.” Mark went to the back of the jeep. “Want some wine?”
He slipped a carrot into the rabbit’s cage, and hid the roast chicken container further back beneath the blanket.
“Red or White?”

It’s Friday Fictioneers time. Rochelle provides us with a photo prompt, Oy Vey on this one, and we are tasked to write a 100 word story. Honestly, I don’t even want to know what that really is. The photo is titled grapevine goo. Again I don’t want to know. This could turn me off wine and that would be a tragedy.
Very cute, nicely handled story! I’ll take red.
Red coming up.I’ll join you. Though I think Tiff is having both. Thanks Perry.
Warped sense of humor that. It would be easy to pass a chicken off as rabbit as long as you cut off the wings. 😉 Rabbit does taste like chicken…a little sweeter.
At any rate, an enjoyable story. I enjoyed it.
You guys are making me want to try rabbit (sweet chicken, yum). He does have a warped sense of humor. Reminds me of my first ex-husband.
Oh, what a sneak! This is a well turned tale.
He is a sneak. Thanks Alicia
Dana, He’s got a wierd sense of humor, but she must he used to that by now. She must have loved something else about him enough marry him. Good story and well written. 🙂 —Susan
Sorry about that typo. That should be “be used to” instead of “he used to” in the first sentence. —Susan
Susan- This is true. I think these two are a good match. I’ve no doubt she’ll get him back for it. Thanks, Dana
Dear Dana, What a good creepy story – I think Mark has a cruel, prank side to him. I’d be getting the heck out of there for sure! Thanks, Nan 🙂
He does have a cruel prank side as did my first husband. Sadly it is the thing you hate when they’re there and miss when they’re gone. 😉 Thanks Nan.
Wonder if she would think the chicken is Thumper — after all rabbit tastes like chicken.
So true, Bjorn. He could extend his ruse for a while. Dana
A lovely twist, although we might spare a thought for the chicken, I suppose he he. Very nice tale,
Peter- This is true. We should spare a thought for Chicken Little. He should be as important as Thumper. let’s have a moment of silence. 🙂 Dana
Ha! I enjoyed your little twist and hopefully Tiff will too when she realizes it’s chicken. As Randy mentioned, you have two different male names although I’m guessing there are just Tiff and Mark/Steve. Good one.
Janet- I suspect she will be relieved to find out it’s chicken. And that she is only date one man-Mark. I will get it fixed. Apparently writing in the early morning can make you see double. 🙂 Thanks, Dana
Please ask Elizabeth who Steve is? I read the name Mark.
And Mark has a great sense of humor.
After a few more glasses of wine, she won’t care if it is Thumper ,or chicken, or pigeon pie, possum stew, or fox tail.
fun little tale..
Randy- Thank you for pointing out my dual personality male protagonist. This is what comes of writing at 3am. 😉
If I have gone or my word limit of 100. Her reply would have been “Yes” to his question or red or white. She definitely planned to get her buzz on so she could eat what he was cooking without gagging.
Only what he was cooking?
Sorry, but I had to go there….
(tell her to) Have some more wine.
🙂 I think he might be onto a winner when he finally reveals all. Great idea.
Thanks Sandra. I think you’re right.
This Steve is really a bad guy, she should get rid of him.
Ah, Someday she’ll divorce him and these will be the moments she finds funny. Not a bad guy just a little immature. 🙂
Oh so clever! Really like this one. 😀
Thanks Linda- I had to make something nice out of such a grotesque image. I couldn’t stand it. Dana
Thanks Louise-I tried to have fun least I never eat or drink again. 🙂 Dana
