Wonhundred Word Wednesday: "Would you like fries with that?"

Every Wednesday I join with a group of other authors to do a little project called "WonHundred Word Wednesdays." The premise is this: we are assigned a prompt to which we each write a 100 word story, share it, then link to the other authors' blogs so you can read what they came up with.  - I missed out last week because I was out of town so I'm extra excited for today's prompt. "Would you like fries with that?" 

So, without further adieu
Here's My Story:  

Mark shifted his eyes across the room. Not much was left after she'd carried out her last box. Ten years drifted into memories almost as quickly as she could say the words.

“Would you like fries with that?” he said, handing over the keys to what used to be their car. Now, like more than half of their accumulated possessions, it was hers.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” she scowled. Greedily, she took the keys then scooped her handbag off the counter. 

Mark handed her the salt shaker and opened the front door. “For your fries,” he nodded. She scowled again. 

Don't forget to visit these other blogs to read their 100 word take on "Would you like fries with that?" ...
