Five Sentence Fiction- Companion

Word prompt Companion

Staring at the classified section of the Saturday paper she recognised the words of someone ever so familiar

‘ Mature male seeking female companion to share a love of gardening, bush walking and tea drinking’

She knew the words where her Father’s, who had been widowed 4 years ago, when his wife, her mother had died of liver cancer.

She was so proud to see those words in bold print in the newspaper, she had been pushing him ever so gently to get out and meet new people, it was time, they both knew it.

And without any fanfare he’d done it, ever so sneakily….as she reread his list of must haves again ‘ a love if gardening, bush walking and tea sipping’ her smile broadened, he had forgotten to add an essential requirement- a love of sushi making, a skill he had recently mastered the art of, a cuisine now devoured for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Such a scary thing to be in your twilight and have to start over.
