The third wheel; they called her. Where ever Sally and Tom went, Suzie would follow. This may have been cool for Tom, who got to brag about the two luscious blondes who accompanied him, but it was no party for Sally.

It wasn’t that Sally didn’t want her sister around, but c’mon, on an evening where she expected Tom to propose to her? That’s just too much.

Still, when Sally arrived at the restaurant, there it was, a table and three chairs.

On that night, to Sally’s surprise, Tom popped the question to his one true love… Suzie.

This is my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers.

  1. Oh yeah, that went somewhere I didn’t expect – but I wasn’t the only one.
    Doubling up on these now?? Or tripling, when you count Velvet Verbosity.
    Something from (someone else’s) reality, or just your creativity? 🙂

    1. I like those challenges, they give my writing some sort of direction. My fav used to be the Trifecta challenge, but that one is gone now. Glad I threw you for a spin…

  2. Well, you certainly had a shock ending for this one! 😀 I’m not sure whether to cheer or not. I guess it depends on how Sally actually treated Suzie when no one was around.
