#atozchallenge, U is for Underwear…

“Hey, that’s my machine!”  Ursula had just run back up to her apartment for a minute and this ass took her underwear out of the washer?

“Geez, sorry.”  At least he had the decency to look contrite. “Nobody was here and that machine was done.  I’m in kind of a hurry.   I leave in the a.m.”

“Oh, yeah, where you headed that’s so important?”

“U.S. Navy Base Charleston, ma’am,” he grinned.  “Ensign Rick Jordan.”

“Ursula,” she said.   He was cute, short hair, dimples.  Definitely military.

“Hey, Ursula, you hungry?  Can I buy you a burger?”

Head tilted, she smiled.  “Okay, sailor.”


My theme this year is 100 word fiction.  (So, no, don’t count this line!)

    1. Eh, it was okay, but U was a difficult one! Only one week left and I’ve come up with lots of ideas.

      1. Inspiration sure is a wonderful thing when it comes calling. 🙂 Most of my mind and ideas are all about me (me, me). How do you manage to focus so well on others, Dee?

      2. I’m not sure. It just feels like who I am. It can be a detriment, too, as most women seem to focus on everyone before themselves, because that feels selfish.

      3. Like a fruit tree that just can’t help giving sweetness to the world. Here’s to sunshine, compost and water. 🙂

  4. You can’t help thinking about lovers when the military is involved. Time apart, now Skyping connects them. . .
