Chalk and Cheese #Fiction

PHOTO PROMPT © Stephen Baum

"How have you been?" his eyes craved an answer, despite trying to look plain.

"Well.. Great! and... much better" sarcasm and taunt smeared her every word.

"Can we talk? I still love you" Sham yelled.

"It's all over. We are as different as chalk and cheese. I can't work it out anymore" whining she tried to move.

Her aloof response made him look grave.

Helen and Sham parted in different directions after they passed through a tunnel which was once upon a time their secret place to meet.

Like a temporary storm, the whole story ended in misery and misunderstandings.

Linking it up with The Three Words on Wednesdays #Week 345 - where I have used the words aloof, temporary and whole to weave a story 


Friday Fictioneers- A picture prompt- Fiction in 100 words


  1. Sad end to their tale. I wonder what led to the misunderstanding...

    1. Hey Vinay. That' s the suspense. Lend me few more lines to say that :-P . It's indeed sad

  2. I think there are points in life where parting is the only thing that's make sense.

  3. Partings are rarely mutual so one inevitably feels sad and put out and trying for reconciliation.

  4. great last line Like a temporary storm, the whole story ended in misery and misunderstandings.

  5. Clever piece Rashmi.

  6. I think we've all been there at one point of our lives; always feels so tragic at the time it is happening.

  7. Very sad, but maybe better to break up than to end in a tunnel of misery, without light at the end. Great story.
