“These are the worst seats in the world.”

“Now come on, dear. Surely not The Worst. Surely not in the entire world.”

“How long must we wait. My butt is fusing to the wood. There is hardly any cushion. I need to pee. I cannot bare this much longer.”

“Dear, I’m sure it will be soon. Be patient.”


“Dear, please.”

“We’ve been waiting hours.”

“Dear, it has been less than thirty minutes.”

“You are impossible!

“Ah, Mr. Young and Ms. Stevens. Welcome to the Lover’s Nest. Come on through so we can discuss the particulars of your wonderful day.”

This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

  1. Lovers Nest! Sounds like it will be worth the wait! 🙂

  2. Given your genre, I have a bad feeling about that ever-so-slightly creepy final invitation. But that’s probably me projecting

    • No, you did pick up that hint. It was only a tiny little hint. Bravo.
      I can’t help but take it in a slightly weird direction. Haha

  3. Given the title, I guess it was worth waiting for. I can’t imagine what goes on there though!

    My story!

  4. Sounds like a charmer … 😉 Oy! If that’s their “wonderful day” I can only imagine the “ordinary grump…”

  5. Yikes! I hope someone comes to their senses fast!

  6. Mmm, an award start to a regimented romance and marriage. I sensed reluctance on the part of someone>>

    • Indeed. I wonder if love will triumph in this case or not. It would be hard. Perhaps it is just nerves making it worse?

  7. Dear Laurie,

    I’d think the more patient partner might be rethinking this union by now. 😉 Nicely done.



    • Oh I sure hope so. I’m not sure the relationship should work out! One certainly has the patience of a saint.

  8. I can’t decide who the impatient one is, but I would have strong second thoughts about living in marital “bliss” with that person!

  9. Lover’s Nest! Ooh-la-la. Not where I saw that going at all. Made me grin.

  10. Hopefully it will be something like a holodeck or Total Recall with romantic plug-ins.
