Very humorous, revealing the different ways of thinking for a man and a woman. I enjoyed reading this, and wish you all the best for the Flash Fiction contest.

What a surprised in the end and you treated it with good humor. I would be offended, especially in front of people at work. It looks like something my husband would do, too. So it is a fun story and I enjoyed it.

Well done.

This is a beautiful flash fiction with a surprising ending that could be a true happening. It made me smile. I could see this man with the red silk rose.

    Thank you for your review and kind thoughts. Actually it is true. My husband has a quirky sense of humor and enjoyed telling me that he picked it up off the ground.

From your bio information I suspect this really happened. Whether it did or not it's a sweet story. Best of luck in the contest...I think you'll do well.

This is an excellent entry for the seventy-five flash fiction contest. The little joke at the end really makes the story because a reader has to laugh too.

-A very nice image, Mary.
-I looked at a few of your
reviews, and saw where
someone commented on the
word count.
-I counted by hand on
the computer can came up with 65.
-You have a good story, especially
with the pick up line, but
adding a few more adjectives
would bring up the word count.

    I will recheck but when I pasted it when I thought I had 74 it pasted 85 on the count. So I cut it. I will look again.
    Thank you for the review and kind thoughts

Lol. The key phrase is "I picked up this rose for you." Well, this sounds like a true story, not fiction. What I appreciate most about it is that he was honest. Best wishes in the contest!

This 75-word story, A Red Rose, is a funny, sweet story of an expression of love that comes with just a bit too much detail. Unfortunately, I count only 64 words.

The following is your story with a few adjectives to add eleven more words. Please use it:

My darling husband Harvey showed up at my business office with a beautiful red silk rose.

"I picked up this rose for you," nodding to the scarlet bloom.

I was thrilled that his love for me was on full display for all to see.

"You know, I found it on the ground in the parking lot and so I picked it up."

Seeing the wide, satisfied grin on his face, I just had to laugh.

Happy day.

    Thank you Bill. Actually when I transferred it over it showed I had 85 words. So I had to cut it down. It shows 74 words.
    Mary

reply by Bill Schott on 11-Nov-2020
    Okay, Mary. I hand counted sixty-four and added eleven. Hope it all turns out right. Happy day.

reply by the author on 11-Nov-2020
    I went back and found out that by double spacing it shows a higher word count. So I played with it a little. Thanks for the heads up.
