Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by J Hardy Carroll.

Love at first sight?
I don’t know about that, but I was certainly smitten.
She is kind, intelligent, and beautiful.
And when she moves all of her seems to move in all the right ways.
I think she might be that special lady I’ve always dreamed about.
So I’ve been wooing her in the old-fashioned way.
It is obvious that she approves of this, we are getting along very well.
Until I give her the flowers.
It seems I might have misunderstood her when she told me that she reacts rather violently to hay-fever.
Please, sweetheart, put down the gun.
