Love Opens the Door

For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 25 November 2016

Note: Every newlywed couple will have a spat once in a while, but love can always find a way to open the door leading to a happy ending.

Megan told him she was having a baby.

“Are you sure it‘s mine?”

Daniel was only kidding, of course. He didn’t expect she would take it that hard.

Megan rushed to the room. When he followed, she slammed the door and locked it.

“Open the door,” Daniel pleaded. “I can explain.”

But there was no response.

Daniel left the house and came back with a bouquet of flowers.

This time he found the door unlocked.

“I’m so sorry… I didn‘t know what I was thinking. I can’t live without you.”

“Me, too,” Megan said accepting the flowers he gave her.

    Not what your supposed to say in that situation! Glad they made up and hopefully it goes smoothly from here. Nice story.

      i think he learned his lesson.

    Dear Plaridel,

    Daniel has a lot to learn about hormone levels and mood swings in pregnant women. Cute story.



    • 4. plaridel  |  November 23, 2016 at 6:52 pm


      i think he’s a quick learner and won’t make the same mistake again.

  • 5. Dale  |  November 23, 2016 at 4:55 pm

    Not the thing to say to a pregnant woman… he’s lucky she forgave him..

    • 6. plaridel  |  November 23, 2016 at 6:52 pm


      i totally agree. being pregnant isn’t a joking matter.

  • 7. momtheobscure  |  November 23, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    Never joke with a pregnant woman lol, as Rochelle said hormones and mood swings 🙂

    • 8. plaridel  |  November 23, 2016 at 6:52 pm


      he better be on his good behaviour from now on. 🙂

  • 9. gahlearner  |  November 24, 2016 at 4:49 am

    She’d better get used to his humour fast, and he could use a bit of restraint, But there’s a lovely happy ending.

    • 10. plaridel  |  November 24, 2016 at 2:19 pm


      i think all newlyweds go through this phase.

  • 11. neelwritesblog  |  November 24, 2016 at 7:20 am

    Thankfully, a happy ending.

    • 12. plaridel  |  November 24, 2016 at 2:19 pm


      a welcome treat especially during the holidays. 🙂

  • 13. draliman  |  November 24, 2016 at 9:35 am

    He needs to think before opening his mouth 🙂

    • 14. plaridel  |  November 24, 2016 at 2:18 pm


      that’s an excellent advice.

  • 15. Keith's ramblings  |  November 24, 2016 at 10:20 am

    Ah, the power of the flower! They’ve helped me out a few times I can tell you!

    • 16. plaridel  |  November 24, 2016 at 2:18 pm


      a little romance surely helps. 🙂

  • 17. Joy Pixley  |  November 25, 2016 at 11:46 am

    Hopefully both newlyweds have learned a lesson about when not to joke and also when not to overreact — otherwise this next part is going to be even harder. 🙂

    • 18. plaridel  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:23 pm


      yes, it takes two to make a relationship works. 🙂

  • 19. lingeringvisions by Dawn  |  November 25, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    Yup, its just like this, while getting to know each other.

    • 20. plaridel  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:22 pm


      more challenges ahead. hopefully, they don’t get discouraged.

  • 21. Björn Rudberg (brudberg)  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    I think this is a lesson that was worth having… maybe it will learn them something… sweet

    • 22. plaridel  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:22 pm


      as a couple, there’ll be more challenges to come. hopefully, their love for each other is strong enough to overcome them.

  • 23. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    I was fully expecting she would be gone when he got back. Your ending was nicer.

    • 24. plaridel  |  November 26, 2016 at 2:22 pm

      Life Lessons of a Dog Lover:

      such a cute couple. i didn’t have the heart to end it differently.

      • 25. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover  |  November 26, 2016 at 3:08 pm

        And you didn’t have to, everyone likes a happy ending.

        • 26. plaridel  |  November 26, 2016 at 5:03 pm

          Life Lessons of a Dog Lover:

          you’re absolutely right.

  • 27. Amy Reese  |  November 27, 2016 at 10:33 am

    A spat is especially nice when it leads to a bouquet of flowers. Very romantic, Plaridel. I’m glad this couple could work it out, especially with baby on the way.

    • 28. plaridel  |  November 28, 2016 at 2:47 pm


      i guess it’s the spirit of the season.

  • 29. rgayer55  |  November 29, 2016 at 3:38 am

    I’m one of those guys who perpetually keeps his foot in his mouth. How/why she puts up with me I’ll never know.

    In my version of this story, he would have asked, “Are you sure it’s YOURS?”

    • 30. plaridel  |  November 29, 2016 at 3:02 pm


      i doubt it’ll work. women tend to smarter than we think. 🙂

  • 31. patriciaruthsusan  |  November 29, 2016 at 5:10 am

    Oh, my. That’s not funny in that situation. I guess he found that out. He was fortunate she forgave him that soon. She no doubt knew him well enough to realize he didn’t mean it. Good writing, Plaridel. 🙂 — Suzanne

    • 32. plaridel  |  November 29, 2016 at 3:01 pm


      i guess it can be expected that somebody in a relationship will cross the line once in a while .

  • 33. Michael Wynn  |  November 29, 2016 at 6:11 am

    Bit of a faux pas. Thing is will he ever learn?

    • 34. plaridel  |  November 29, 2016 at 3:01 pm


      if she trains him well, he will. 🙂

  • 35. Just Me  |  December 14, 2016 at 7:53 pm

    Meh, sure the joke was in poor taste…..but the running out of the room, into another, and slamming the door? Dramatic. 🙂 cute story!

    • 36. plaridel  |  December 14, 2016 at 9:17 pm

      just me:

      i’m glad you liked it. thank you. 🙂
