#Fridayfictioneers #Flashfiction ‘Hearty Bread’

This week’s prompt has inspired me to write a romantic tale. So far, we’ve seen Billy and Alice as inseparable, childhood friends. This week we’ll be looking at how their relationship might develop.

Leading on from last week’s story, in which Alice’s parents were in some sort of trouble, Alice will need Billy, now Bill’s, help and support.

Thank you Rochelle for the prompt and hosting the challenge. Please check out her blog for more information on this weekly challenge. https://rochellewisoff.com/ and thanks to © Kelvin M. Knight for the photo prompt.

The smell of toast and coffee wafted up the stairs and into Bill’s guest room, where I lay, eyes squeezed shut, holding back my tears, hoping my parents would return.

Downstairs, Bill’s mum was laying the table. He stood by her side, turned and warmed my heart with his smile.

When had my skinny, playful, childhood friend become the anchor which held my world together?

‘Breakfast’s ready,’ he said, placing a piece of toast on my plate, and this time, my tears flowed.

‘We’re in this together, Alice,’ he whispered and kissed my temple.


Thank you for reading and I hope you’re having a great weekend❤

  3. Dear Luccia,

    Ah, so satisfying and sweet. My heart raced and I wanted to know more. (I love taking childhood literary favorites and musing what their lives might be like when they grew. ( https://rochellewisoff.com/2017/05/08/its-no-secret/ ) In any event, I love Alice and I usually don’t care for continuing stories in FF.

    • Thank you, Rochelle. I’m sure Alice and Bill will be inseparable in the long term. I still think of my childhood-teenage sweetheart, but it didn’t work out when we grew into adulthood… another, what if?
      I checked out your secret garden post. Beautiful.


  4. This is a match made in heaven, me thinks. Flash Fiction at its loveliest. .
