Sean and Brawnie Ringin’ in the Rain

Two rings

Sean stood at the kitchen window, watching drizzle slide down the pane.

“What a lovely mornin’,” he chirped.

“Thank you, Debbie Reynolds,” Brawnie replied, picking up a dish towel to dry a freshly washed wine glass.

Sean continued scrubbing crusty residue off last night’s dinner plates.

“I wonder,” he asked hesitantly, “how a guy would find out someone’s ring size without asking?”

Brawnie raised his eyebrows. 

“Are you trying to tell me something?”

“I mean,” Sean explained, “if you wanted the perfect ending to your musical.…”

Brawnie gulped lukewarm coffee from his mug. 

“I suppose the guy could just keep tap dancing around the question,” he suggested. 

“Then again,” he continued, looking out the rainy window, “if I were Gene Kelly, it’s possible I already would have gone off and bought a ring for my darling Debbie.”

Sean smirked. He placed a handful of cooking utensils in their drawer.

“What a lovely mornin’.”

  1. Wonderful, Brian !!!!
    Smiling the whole way through your flash-fiction and both videos!

    Wishing you a fantastic day, you’ve certainly made my morning brighter 🙂

    BTW, really nice touch with the dialogue in your story. Not just what’s said, but what’s unsaid…

      1. I would never guess, not by this tiny jewel of a scene, that you had any difficulty with plot writing.

        Yes, leaving things unsaid, but understood…not easy. Still working on that one 🙂
