“How far is it?” My wife whined.

“Not too long, my love”, I glanced nervously at the map on my mobile.

“Well, this sucks. Street after street of the same old shit.”

I didn’t take her bait.

“I hate this street”; we passed by the Royal Palace without giving it a glimpse.

“I hate this city”, Teatro Real went past, unacknowledged.

“I hate this country”, I didn’t bother to mention that we crossed Plaza de la Villa.

“I hate this useless honeymoon.”

“We are here”, I smiled, jabbing my thumb towards Chocolateria San Gines.

“I love you.”

She was hungry.

    1. Chocolate is a very potent, albeit temporary solution for problems. I’ve seen people hopelessly in love split after marriage and people who were totally opposites make it work. So there is a chance… Thanks for the read and comment, Cheers. Varad

  1. I fear he’s in for a life of trying to appease the goddess.
    And when she’s overweight from eating all that chocolate she’ll probably be angry with him for buying it for her.
    Good job setting the scene and characters here.

    1. Thanks a lot for the kind words, Suzanne. It’s been really enlightening reading the comments. The same scene evoking different emotions. It’s all in the eyes of the beholder, wouldn’t you say? Glad you liked the story. Cheers, Varad

    1. Thanks a lot for the kind words. I remember the snickers ad as well. Though, that was not what I was going for. But I get how this would have reminded you of the commercial. Cheers, Varad


        1. Oh there was a snickers add along the same lines here in India as well. They missed a trick in not using ‘hangry’ here. It would have been the new rage in social media here


        1. No, it definitely was not from her point of view. Maybe his perseverance might make a difference to their relationship. Only time will tell (or me, in a later story 😆)


  2. Welcome to this crazy group, Verad!
    I like to think he knows her quite well so is hurrying to fill her belly, so they can return and visit properly when she isn’t so focused on replenishing…. Otherwise, they are doomed to misery!


    1. Thank you Dale. I’m enjoying the adventure so far. Long may it continue. And, yes he has made it a point to know her well. That’s something apparently she needs to understand and work with. Cheers, Varad

  3. Dear Varad,

    First, Welcome to Friday Fictioneers!
    If this honeymoon is any indication of what his wife is like, I predict a miserable life for him. Nicely done.



    PS I fixed your link, it was leading back to my page for some reason. Be sure when you link your post that your story URL goes in the designated box.


    1. Thanks a lot for the warm welcome, Rochelle. I hope to have a lot of fun, interact with fellow writers and hopefully learn something through Friday Fictioneers. And thanks a lot for the comment.

      I don’t know what I did wrong during linking my post. Thanks again for fixing it.
