Flash Fiction

Eric checked his pockets again, then added chocolates to the cart. From another aisle came a bouquet of flowers. After wandering a bit, he found the card section and selected one that seemed special. Into the cart.

At the end of the card aisle were some bows and ribbons and he chose a fancy matched set for chocolates box.

Finally, he was home. “I was listless at the store hon, got this stuff instead.”

This Flash Fiction was inspired by the word Listless. I chose an implied contextual meaning instead of the usual.
