Flash Fiction Friday: Excuses

            “I have to go... iron... my cat.” I winced, unable to believe that I’d just said those words.
            He arched a perfect dark eyebrow in classic romance novel fashion. “I see. Well, I’d hate to keep you from something so important.”
            “I’m sorry. I’m not good at this.”
             “It’s alright. I understand. I won’t bother you again.”
            He walked away and I let him go. I had to. Nothing could interfere with my mission.

            But as I set off to find the landlocked mermaid, I wished that I could have just one ordinary Friday night.


Today's Novel Idea Prompted by: "I have to go... iron... my cat."

Hahaha, that's some hurricane! Poor mermaid! (At first, I thought your story said, "fight the landlocked mermaid" and I thought, "well, that shouldn't be *too* difficult :D")

But, back to the important part here: I hope she finds a way to meet Mr. Sexy Eyebrows again some day!

He should've brought her along. I mean is there a better pick up line than, "I'm on a mission to find a mermaid. Wanna come? We can get coffee and cupcakes along the way." Dude, like, best date ever! ^_^
