Deep Dish

It’s Good Friday, Readers! Can you believe Easter is just a day away?

I’m still rolling with our two characters, Emmeline Price and Nicholas Ramsey. We’ll continue their adventures in today’s Friday Fictioneers. Special thanks to Rochelle for the prompt and Dale Rogerson for providing the photo!

Enjoy!

Deep Dish

“When I imagined us having dinner for the first time, I’ll admit this wasn’t what I had in mind.”

A smile tugged at her lips. “Oh?” asked Emmeline.

Nick felt his ears get hot. He cleared his throat. “Not that I imagined it a lot, mind you.” He shrugged and stared at the bottle of Barbera wine on the table between them.

“And what’s wrong with a bottle of wine and a classic deep dish pizza?” Emmeline asked. Her smile never left her face as she lifted a slice to her mouth for a bite.

“Nothing,” Nick said. “It’s perfect.”

 

Going Native

Going Native

“Thanks,” said Weylin taking the square cardboard box and handing the pizza delivery boy money. He didn’t wait to sit at the table before stuffing a piece of the hot, greasy concoction into his mouth.

“I don’t know how you consume such disgusting sludge.”

“It’s delicious.”

“It’s foul. Even with my dulled senses in this wretched mortal body my nose is offended.”

“With you something’s always offended, Gavren.”

“You’ve gone native,” Gavren sneered.

“We don’t know if or when the portal to Faerie will open again. I’m making the most of it. You should too.”

Gavren’s lip curled in reply.
