Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt. Each week’s challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo. Click here to play along or just read more stories.
The Magic Number
We met at the Boba spot. We started talking while awaiting our orders.
“Charlie and I are going for a walk in the park. Would you like to join us?”
“Charlie? You know, three’s a crowd.”
“I’ve heard three’s company, too.”
I pointed out the window to the little dog waiting in the car.
“Aah! I’d love to.”
As we walked, she talked to Charlie more than me. We three started to feel more like those two and me.
How did I take my dog for a walk and become the third wheel? At least I still have my Boba.
Boba Tea, a.k.a. Bubble Tea, is a milk tea with little tapioca balls. The tea comes in a variety of flavors as do the balls. My favorite is a chocolate chai a local Chinese restaurant here makes. It’s way better than the actual Boba places. I’ve heard of Boba described as orgasmic. I wouldn’t take it that far, but it’s good.
