To understand this post, first read the explanation of the prompt here (if you don’t know the basic idea already) and then read ‘The Wrong Season’ (part 1) here, written by Mrs. Green at Well, I never… Then read on below:
Then, too late, she saw the glint in his eye.
“Half a kilo? Coming right up, madam.”
She struggled to keep a straight face.
“Mister Jarvis… If YOU have ME on a string ONCE more…”
It was hopeless to pretend, though. She knew it.
She loved it. He knew it.
Love it – a little bit of humour, and maybe an old romance.
I’m glad you like it. Your first 50 words, and the layout, just seemed to click!
Love this! When I read part one I was expecting ranting and disappointment – but this is fun and could there be love among the sausages? (one small typo – knew x2)
Thank you, and thanks for pointing out the typo – it must have been late! (Now corrected.)
This is lovely; humour, romance. Will it continue…

No mincing with emotions there Phil! Get take on Alison’s starter. Brill!
Really like this, especially as I was expecting something that would evoke sadness as opposed to humour! Nice cadence to the piece as well, a great match to part one. I particularly like the last three sentences.
I’m with you, snaggle. Great cadence and wrapped up well in the end. Highly flirtatious!
