Comfort Food #flashfiction

“Strawberry cheesecake ice cream? A family-sized fruit and nut chocolate bar? Iced-coconut sponge? What the heck is going on, Simon?”

“Comfort, you said, so I got you some of your favourite comfort foods. I thought the popcorn would bring back memories of our first date. These will all make you feel better. Oh, there’s one more thing.”

Julia rummaged around the shopping bag, hoping he’d got her what she wanted.

“Hot-cross buns? Are you kidding me? When I said comfort, I meant something I could put on my piles so I could sit down and be more comfortable!”


Written in response to Charli Mills 99-word flash fiction challenge with the theme of comfort food.

  1. When reading your flash fiction, Hugh, I immediately begin to look for the ‘twist.’ This story did not disappoint. Well done!

      1. Lol, I love this type of ‘pun’ writing almost. Perhaps that can be another book for you???? You have such a gift for twisty endings, keep using it! 🙂 xx
