Short Fictions

 The Argument

       First X said something. Y gave a quick response. X responded to what Y said. Y made an association that turned the conversation in a new direction.   X felt misunderstood and raised his voice. Y accused him of being defensive. X hotly denied that. The argument grew voluble. Each became uncompromising. Each was louder and more pointed in an attempt to outdo the other.

      Then suddenly he said to himself, Glad that’s sorted out. And he went to bed.

      Thanks, Van! I was just now wading through the spam and ridiculous generated comments when I came upon yours. That’s a pleasure! I’m glad you read it! I have to read your poetry…I’ll look for the poetry. Have a great Christmas, and love to everyone!
