FIVE SENTENCE FICTION - Misunderstanding

My response this week is actually taken from a scene in one of my WIPs, an adult contemporary with a paranormal element running through parts of the storyline. This WIP has a working title of “His Darkest Secret”

A Photo Can Lead to a Serious Misunderstanding

There had been a gross misunderstanding on Jessica’s part when she found an envelope on the back seat of her fiancĂ© Bill’s red convertible sports car containing several photos of a gorgeous statuesque woman with long auburn hair standing in front of his car, wearing the same red outfit she decided to wear to see him at the hospital.

The reason she needed to see him there is he’d gotten injured fighting a fire when the roof collapsed around.

At the hospital she met Father Kelly who accompanied to her fiancĂ©’s room where they finalized the arrangements to have him officiate at the ceremony.

After he left, Jessica began to question Bill about the woman in the photos she’d found previously; and when he persisted in not answering her questions, Jessica’s worst fears came over her as she thought he might have another woman in his life.

Eventually Bill confessed the woman in those photos is his twin sister, Stephanie, the black sheep in the family; and she’s a model who helped him get the same outfit for Jessica as a present for her last birthday. 


  1. That's a nice happy ending story :) Great that Bill cleared the misunderstanding :)

    1. I'm glad you liked the ending. How could Bill not clear up the misunderstanding, especially since they've just arranged to have Father Kelly officiate at their wedding in about a month, It had been kismet which had brought then together the raining night Jessica had the accident with her car and Bill had come to her aid.
