Ephemeral XII

The concept of time can be tricky, especially as it pertains to the here and now

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...

One evening, the question was asked:

"Is it time for bed yet?"

"I don't know, what time is it?"

"It's now."

"Well, when would you like to go to bed?"


"Then there's your answer."

"What answer?"

"To your question."

"Which was?"

"Is it time for bed yet?"

"How should I know if it is! If you want to go to bed, go now!"
