FLASH FICTION-DAISY MAISY

Hi everyone! For the last day of July here is a piece of flash fiction for you to enjoy. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend!



Daisy Maisy
 
 
 
He knew when he seen her it was love at first sight. Her smile lit up a light inside of him.
The question was how was he going to win her over. Should he send her flowers?
He wasn't sure but it had to be special so he went out of his way to find her something that would catch her attention.
What he could tell and what he found out was she didn't like fussy things so roses were not it. Maybe flowers weren't what he should give her?
Perfume? That made him wrinkle his nose. Never liked the stuff.
No, it would have to be simple and yet pretty.
He thought for what appeared to be a long time and if he didn't think of something the fellow who smiled at her would be there before him and he would lose his love.
Out the corner of his eye he spotted a patch of white daisies. With one stride he plucked them and headed toward his love. The other fellow was on his way to her as well!
When she looked up their eyes met and at first he didn't' think she wanted him to come towards her but then her smile lit up her face as he got closer.
He held up the daisies hiding his face.  The other fellow laughed at him. "Is that the best you can do?"
He felt deflated as the other fellow held out a single rose to her.
His love lost her smile. Oh no.
What he didn't notice was that she was not frowning at him but the fellow with the single rose.
She sent him on his way and smiled at him.
"I love daisies, they are my favorite flower. How did you know such a thing?"
He smiled at her. "I just knew."
"My name is Daisy you know."
"It suits you. You're my Daisy Maisy."
She flushed as he placed a daisy in her hair.
