#MondayMixer is a flash-fiction event hosted by Jeffrey Hollar (@Klingorengi) . Jeffrey provides three groups of three prompts (three locations, three things and three adjectives) and participants post 150-word stories – using at least one word from each group – on their blogs. This week’s prompts are:
Here is my story:
“This is where Emily and I first met,” Frank said as he and Steve walked across the factory floor, inspecting the production run. “She came here to have me cast a special line of climbing equipment designed just for you to promote, but I found out she had something else in mind, too.”
“You did make some good gear, but you had the ability to choose. She didn’t force herself on you. You knew she was my wife.”
“And I feel really bad about that. I sincerely apologise. It will never happen again.”
“Even though it’s been going on for two years?”
“Yes. Friday, I told her it was over and I invited you here to come clean. I hope you will forgive me.”
“Why, I don’t have a vindictive bone in my body,” Steve replied. Then he drove a piton through Frank’s forehead and pushed him into the foundry.
