Finally Saw the Light
For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge 7 February 2014
From his seat, Homer heard the fountain making strange noises. According to his wife’s to-do list, it was time to add water.
Diane left him for Biker Mike, but her memories remained, most especially in her to-do list and odd collection of lamps.
Friends had advised him to move on. Homer thought it wasn’t possible until a newcomer on the island awakened in him feelings he thought he’d never have again.
Homer’s train of thought was interrupted once more by the sound of the fountain begging for attention. He went to the backyard and pulled its plug silencing it forever.
