Friday Fictioneers ~ Difficult Arrangement

100 word story for Friday Fictioneers

The Smith’s owned adjoining property to the Joneses. (What are those odds?)
Mrs. Smith cultivated a beautiful rose garden along the property line. As luck would have it, her most prized specimen tipped its bounty into the Joneses yard.
Seven stunning blossoms now enhanced a foreign property.
Proper etiquette frowned upon Mrs. Smith trespassing to claim her beloved beauties and
Mrs. Jones felt she shouldn’t cut them unless she equally shared them with the plant’s owner.
So they hang there still; uncut and unadorned in any vase.
If only there’d been an even number, an arrangement may have been made.

  2. At least they’re both being very polite about it all. I’m glad the flowers are staying in the ground, where they belong πŸ™‚

Tell me something good...
