How to Melt Someone’s Anger

Ugh I’m so mad at her! She always does this in the mornings. I turn and slam the bathroom door as I go for a shave. As the water is running, I grab the blade only to cut my finger. I gulp down my desire to yell and go towards the kitchen. To my surprise there is a pile of bandages and a message. As I wrap one around my finger I read the message. “Knew you would cut yourself. Kept the bandages for you.” That girl surely knows how to melt someone’s​ anger.

The picture prompt has been given by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at the Friday Fictioneers. The word prompts have been given by Joyce Sutphen at the Sunday Whirligig.

    There’s nothing like an intuitive woman to diffuse a mans anger. Nicely done.




  5. Aw, what a sweet and thoughtful woman 🙂


  6. My immediate reaction was to apologise as I had left the bathroom in a mess. I am so relieved is wasn’t me. What a beautiful picture you painted with this story Bernadette.
