Friday Fictioneers: The New Boat

This is my second entry into the Friday Fictioneers flash fiction challenge run by Rochelle Wiseoff-Fields. This week’s picture prompt was provided by Georgia Koch. The challenge is to write a story within 100 words.

‘Just look! Isn’t it wonderful?’ Kev exclaimed.

‘Wonderful?’ Valerie shifted her disgusted gaze between him and the dilapidated vessel, her painted lips pursed. ‘How much more money have you wasted? And you expect me to live on it! You know what, Kev? I’m sick of this. It’s over.’

The ring that had adorned her finger for nearly five years landed at his feet.

As his soon to be ex-wife stalked away from the river Kev examined his new boat with satisfaction. It had worked. Their pre-nup was quite clear. By leaving him she wouldn’t get a penny of his money.

    • Before editing it down to 100 words there was mention of several other things he’d done to try to get rid of her. You have to wonder what further lengths he’d go to if this one hadn’t worked! 🙂
