Friday Fictioneers: Cute and Quirky

Billy and I had been together for three years, but our days were numbered. Things I used to find cute and quirky, now irritated me.

We had been fighting all morning because I asked him to throw his dirty clothes in the hamper, which he couldn’t do because he “had a system”. Why would I ever think that was cute? It was stupid. He was stupid.

I needed a break. I opened the window and straddled the sill just as my new co-worker walked by. He shouted up to me and waved. I smiled. “He’s cute and quirky” I thought.
