The release of The Finger is nearly upon us, so you know what we have for you: Facebook Fiction Friday. This week’s submission is from Dee Westfall and goes a little something like this:
“Every year you give up whatever I give up for lent. Why do you do that? You’re not even Catholic.” His curiosity pushed hard into intrigue. She angled her head from the dinner she was cooking- cheeseless , for Lent- and shrugged. “You do it. I just think it’s good to give up something, and it’s easier for you if you’re not on your own with it. I don’t need cheese, and you might find it easier to keep your promise if the person you live with does it with you. You know, I don’t really know, I just do it.”
He took the knife from her hand, and tenderly wrapped his arms around her. “Oh,” he said “for love.”
See you next week. Or sooner if you visit our Facebook page. We are very good at getting back to people who comment on it. Ask our mothers. Which reminds us, we need to make a call. No, not to our mothers. Just a call. Really. Gotta go. See you in seven!
