Flash Fiction Foray #33 ‘Sh-Boom’

I love Matt’s prompt this week! It’s a song I can croon along to!

Neon Music Sign

The The Crew Cuts’ Sh-Boom.

I have definitely used a little creative licence here, there is no truth to this at all… Well, I don’t know, but it’s just how the story turned out!

“Life could be a dream, sweetheart,” Benny said, “you just gotta trust me.”
Frankie looked over the figures in front of her and glanced at him. He had his heart set on this.  But it meant their savings being ploughed into something she wasn’t sure of.
He was a good cook, yeah, and she could be the hostess with the mostess, but was he really good? And could she entertain a room fulla folks?
Only time would tell…
Six months later, they unveiled Frankie & Benny’s.
Years later she thought back to that day. Thank God she had trusted him…

    Ritu, I like happy endings! Yes, this works out with a restaurant and she will be the “hostess with the mostest” The music and idea of this place match together, like a diner with those old music machines, where you put the quarter in: “Jukeboxes!” 🙂
