This is my entry into this week’s flash fiction for aspiring writers (FFfAW). In this challenge you are given a picture and asked to write a 100 to 150 words story inspired by the image.
This week’s image has being provided by Sonya.

Maggie put down her suitcase with a thud as she stood on the dock. She placed her gloved hands on her hips and gave a withering look at her husband. “Dave, when you said we would be going on a boat I pictured something a little more glamorous.”
“It’s a boat, right?” Dave’s voice revealed his tiredness to anyone listening. It had been a long journey before they had reached the port, and, as usual, he had not done anything right during his trip. “Just get yourself on-board, Maggie.”
“There is no way that I would be seen dead on anything bright yellow!”
He huffed out an angry breath. “Maybe they will paint it for you.” He started to walk up the gangway, leaving her behind.
She stamped her foot childishly, and then she waited impatiently for him to disembark. He never did, and the boat sailed away without her.
