Once again, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields has provided a photo prompt to poke our creative writing skills. Thanks for using my photo, Rochelle. I had so much fun watching these two talk during Covid. I snapped many pictures but missed their goodbye so asked them to do it again. They were more than happy to and, when I checked to see if they minded my publishing their pictures, they said it was fine and he asked me to email the entire series to him.

Let’s say he came home; good news flowing through his veins. A raise! He can’t take time to run upstairs, so shouts, “Kristine!” until his wife arrives at the window, all smiles and excitement.

No, he’s leaving, angry. The company fired Kristine today. She begs him to stay, leaning so far out the window she nearly falls. He shouts, “You are too mouthy!” “A flirt.” The neighbors cover their ears.

Finally, let’s say they met at a party; spent the night talking, don’t think otherwise. This morning’s goodbye is hard. Let’s give them another evening and see where things go.
