One Day!


“For one day, Ethel! Is it too much to ask to have just one day when you don’t call me with some crazy request? A damn waterpark, really?”
“Oh. I’m sorry to have made you feel this way. I’m going to cry. I’m going to hang up now, Cheryl, you have hurt my feelings.”

Their phones do not ring each other for two days.

“Hi Ethel, it’s me, Cheryl.”
“I know who it is.”
“I’m sorry, can you ever forgive me? I treated you terribly, I’m an awful friend.”
“You forgive me? Or I’m awful?”

July 25: Flash Fiction Challenge… I realize this is a departure from a true flash fiction story, as there is no end… yet. 

This was the prompt…  In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the phrase “for one day.”
