Ephemeral VII

Omniscience can be supplanted by exploration and excitement


Ephemeral - Being a series of short stories that allow the reader to look in on the day to day interactions of a fictional couple.

Flitting in tone from absurd to funny and at times even to poignant, the exchanges featured in each chapter are a fond look at the ephemeral nature of life, love and communication. They are also a very affectionate look on the part of the author at the love her characters have for one another.

Now please read on...


At midday on a Monday, the question was asked:

“Did you get any sliced ham on Saturday?”

“No, the shop was out of it.”

“I’d really like some; do they have any now?”

“How should I know? I haven’t been there since Saturday! Go and find out for yourself; the store’s just around the corner.

“But if there isn’t any, it will be a wasted trip!”

“That’s one of the risks that makes life so exciting.”

The End
