Change of Scenery

100 words about living by the beach
(c) Sonya, 2014

‘Remember how we used to talk about living in a house by the beach?’

‘Do you have to remind me? The ‘things I didn’t do’ list’s much too long already.’

‘Well, take this one off because we’re going to. Until, you know…’

‘Say it. Until I begin the treatment.’

‘I’m not sure you can call it treatment.’

‘It’s all we can afford, and we’ll call it treatment. But we can’t afford a month at the seaside.’

‘We can. Don’t ask how. I want us to have a good time before you…’

‘You have to start saying it sooner or later.’


Nothing I wrote today was quite up to scratch, but this one is the best of the lot I reckon (it started life as a response to the Daily Prompt: a tale of two cities and went strange). I have a terrible cold, not the best condition for writing master pieces…

  1. Sorry to hear of the cold. Sending you good vibes so you can recover faster and kick the cold in the bum. Your story gets me thinking, as always 🙂


  2. It’s a hard word to say when you’re toalking to someone you love – absolutely spot on. Why do we all leave these things so late, waiting and waiting to do lovely things together because we can’r quite afford it or it’s not the right time? I hope they had a lovely month together before ‘that word’ happened.
    Lovely, thoughtful piece, Sonya x
