Contest entry for the The Writer's Cramp
|Jill looks out at the window and starts thinking about her husband. And how long it has been since he has left.
"Only when you leave does my heart skip a beat. As I wait for your return, the agony lasts eternally. The pain is like a ship sailing against a powerful storm. But our love will keep us going no matter what. I have counted the days when we would meet again. Oh, how much I adore you like no other. You are my one true love."
When Gary, her husband, returns she sprints to the door and greets him with a gigantic smile.
"Here you go. Here's your favorite ice cream with extra bananas and coconuts"
"Thanks so much. I have been waiting for weeks to have some, ever since I started this new diet."
As Jill eats her ice cream, she holds the container tight in her arms, as if it was a new born baby. Gray gives her a weird look as he watches his
wife eat her ice cream with such passion.
"Wow, you really do love that ice cream. Should I be jealous?"
"Yes. In fact, now is the time to tell you that I am leaving you for this ice cream. Sorry."
Jill looks down at her ice cream and whispers 'I love you', in a comical way.
She laughs as Gray walks into another room.
"Thanks for the ice cream."
Jill continues to eat her ice cream and thinks to herself; I love cheat day.
