A Daydream – almost


As the horseman rode his steed down the tree covered lane, Jayne opened the message he’d delivered, This was unexpected, but not really unwelcome. Robert proposed marriage. It was years in the making, their parents arranged first friendship then pushed then into romance.

Waking from the daydream Jane realized she must get on with either an acceptance or a graceful refusal. Accepting the offer of becoming the CEO of a small start-up would drastically change her life. First she’d have to move half way across the country, and give up close friendships, including one especially close that she had dreamed of marrying someday.

Here’s another entry in Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers for Nobember 29, 2016 in 100 words.

About Mike

I'm an avid bicyclist, that also enjoys Kayaking, Nature Photography, Cross Country Skiing and Geocaching. There's nothing more boring than sitting indoors in "good" weather.

  1. Sounds like Jane has made up her mind and is going to turn down this proposal and move half way across the country to become a CEO. Great story Mike! (Don’t forget to link it up to the InLinkz Story board so others can read it too). πŸ™‚

  2. Iain Kelly says:

    Nice change in the middle. A real contrast in how lives have changed. Great.

  3. Jade M. Wong says:

    The change of story in the middle was a little jarring. A smoother transition would help greatly in make the change more clear. Other than that, this was a well-written story, and I liked seeing two different times in Jayne’s life πŸ™‚
