50-Word Tales #118

Children holding hands painting

‘Let’s make love!’ Ernest, aged 7, proposed to his sweetheart Seraphina, aged 8.

She frowned.

‘Marriage first, sex after,’ she said.

He beamed.

‘Seraphina, my love, my hope, my life, will you marry me?’ he asked.

‘I’d rather shave my head!’ she said, and she pushed him over the bridge.

  1. Where did you get the name Seraphina from? Such a beautifully unusual name (at least it is where I come from)!
    In fact, where do you get the names for your characters? I’d love to know. 🙂
