Now That You Mention It… (Trifextra Challenge, February 2013)

I’ve been thinking.


About us

What about us?

I don’t think it’s working


You and me.  I need some space

Oh… right


You got it

Huh?  Just like that?


This week’s Trifextra Weekend Challenge was ‘dialogue’   33 word limit.   Sometimes that’s all it takes.  😦

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  1. A mutual break up in 33 words – brilliant! 🙂


  2. Sometimes we overcomplicate things. Your dialogue is proof that it can be simple! Loved it.

    Ouch! That has to hurt!

    I love how you created understanding between two people in so few words. It sounds as though that may be one of the few times for those two.

    Hope that’s what the initiator was looking for or else as Deana said,it must have hurt like hell!Great piece-loved the crispiness here:-)


  8. Oooooo…. I’ve been there, and it’s a delicious ending (as long as it’s a mutual feeling.)

  10. Dawn Lamond says:

    “I’ve been thinking” is always a loaded phrase, fraught with peril – great take on the prompt! 🙂


  11. Suzanne says:

    Nicely done! Love the way the power shifts over the course of the conversation.


  12. jannatwrites says:

    I wish my breakups had gone that well…even when thinks were just awful either me or the other person didn’t want to let go!


  13. Not only did you handle the breakup deftly, you showed why they’re breaking up. 🙂

    Could see the conversation. Conveyed so much in 33 words. One of the best I’ve read!


  16. What a lovely twist!


  17. Love your conversation.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
