#atozchallenge, E is for Easter…


“A fix up, Gran?  On Easter?”

“Darling, Jason is a wonderful neighbor.  He’s just about your age.  He would have gone to the fire station for dinner.”

“He’s some Neanderthal, musclebound firefighter?”

Someone coughed and Ellie realized the gorgeous guy with the amused blue eyes had heard her as he came through the back door.  Cheeks flaming, she held out her hand.  “I’m sorry  –”

Jason just took her hand and grinned.  “Probably some truth there, El.  This is my Grandpa Jim. Esther,  I believe you two have met?”

Gran blushed prettily.  “Why, Jim, I had no idea Jason was your grandson.”

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.   (No, this line doesn’t count!)

      1. Tbh – yes. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a double-date. I see them on TV, but I’m not sure they really exist. 🙂

  8. Never invite Gran along on what might turn into a blind date. On the other hand, if things work out, what a great story. As you’ve demonstrated here!

  9. I don’t like this one so much as your others, Dee. I had to read it several times before I got it. Too many people in such a crowded space for me. Hey-ho – can’t will ’em all – right? 🙂

    1. Geez, tough crowd! Sorry you didn’t like it, it was based on little miniromances you find in some magazines. Gram just set El up with her guy’s grandson… But I really do appreciate your feedback, Robert ❤

      1. You see – even the phrase “Gram just set El up with her guy’s grandson” has just too many twists for me to get my head around. It’s a bit like reading the lyrics to I’m My Own Grandpa (http://www.metrolyrics.com/im-my-own-grandpa-lyrics-ray-stevens.html) – it does my head it. But then again – perhaps I’m just fick (that was a phonetic rendering of a ‘thick’ accent). 🙂
        Also – I don’t read those magazines. 😉

      2. No, I get what you’re saying. It was a tough one to fit into 100 words. Thanks for reading and commenting. You know I love to hear from you, even if you’re wrong 😉

  11. Fun and I may need the opposite situation, someday if the gut I like doesn’t get more serious. Yes, we have lots of fun but I’m in this to find a partner for the rest of my life. 😉
