Here’s my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt. Today’s word was CREDIT and in this tale I’m carrying over the thought of Sammi’s Weekend Prompt word, YEAR, but going way over the given word limit.
The Anniversary Surprise
“You know, Will, we’re often talked of visiting England someday,” she said. “Wouldn’t that be a great way to celebrate our twentieth anniversary this fall?”
Will shrugged. “I dunno. Life’s so busy. Maybe some other year.” He drained his coffee mug and buttered another piece of toast.
“But life won’t stop being so busy until we’re too old to travel anymore.”
“Hmm… Hope not.”
“Anyway, I’ve booked our tickets. We leave August 20th; come back Sept 3rd.”
He leaned back in shock, then eyed her suspiciously. “That’s two weeks! Have you maxed out our credit card?”
“Not at all. I’ve been squirreling funds away for years, thinking of this trip. I even paid cash for our airfare.”
“Clever you! All right then. This will be our “Once in a lifetime” anniversary binge. Don’t ask for Paris in five years.”
“Okay. Not Paris.” She smiled serenely.
