Humble Pie

The front door bell chimed.  Mrs. B smiled as she recognized the young man entering her shop. 

“Hi Jason, what brings you here today?  I have freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Your favorite.”

“I know. I could smell them all the way down the street.  But no, I need a pie today.”

“What kind of pie?

“A humble pie.”

“Oh-oh. What’ya do?” Mrs. B shook her head.

“I told Sally there was no way I’d ever forget our anniversary…”

“… and you did.”


“It’s gonna take more than just a pie to fix this.”

“A large chocolate cake?”


I wrote this in response to Charli Mills’ July 20th Flash Fiction Challenge.  In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features any kind of pie.  And as always, she suggests we go where the prompt leads us.

    1. Chocolate cake is my Hubby’s favorite! Gratefully our anniversary is the one date he remembers. Maybe because it’s on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. 🙂 Glad to be back and have you visit.
