Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses this lovely image of two men kissing, and the word left in the comments of last week’s post:
I figured I’d go with an Adventures with Ben and Jerry drabble for this word. Seems like that duo is who comes to mind whenever I’m faced with a need to do something out of the ordinary.
Click here for more story scenes featuring Ben and Jerry.
This is a precisely 100-word drabble told from Ben’s 3rd-person POV:
Adventures with Ben and Jerry
Ben grimaced as he and Jerry walked by the mall’s Chick-fil-A on their way to the Burger King. “My blood pressure still rises whenever I see one of those.”
“We can’t have that.” Jerry stopped in the middle of the food court and waggled his eyebrows. “Come here.”
Jerry pulled him in close and whispered, “I’m going to bring the interstice between our lips down to zero,” right before he planted a good long kiss on Ben’s unsuspecting mouth.
Ben grinned when Jerry pulled away. “Problem solved, but…interstice?”
Jerry shrugged. “It was the Merriam-Webster word of the day.”
