Fortune Cookie 06/13-06/19

Postby Brian » Tue Jun 13, 2006 9:23 am

It's lunchtime and you have Chinese food delivered. At the end of your meal, you open your fortune cookie--but this fortune is different. It's the most shocking revelation you could ever imagine. What does your fortune say? And what is your reaction?

Please limit your response to 500 words or fewer.

HIS FORTUNE
(305 Words)
by Jane Standish

He scrubbed his tongue against the roof of his mouth, trying to rub away a thick coat of grease deposited there by his lo mein and orange chicken.

“This place is a grease pit,” he said.

She dabbed at her mouth with a paper napkin. “Try some of your hot tea.”

He looked at the green, filthy looking liquid in his cup. “Maybe a fortune cookie can scrape it away.”

He tore at the cellophane wrapper and broke the cookie, was about to roll the tiny bit of paper into a ball, but the message caught his eye.

“What is it?” she asked.

He read the fortune again to himself: Call 274-3232. Julie.

“It’s nothing,” he said, looking about the restaurant. “Just a stupid lottery number.”

They should have returned to their offices, but they’d arranged a long lunch … and a hotel room.

Naked, and still bathed in sweat, he watched her while she dressed. Life couldn’t be more perfect, he thought—great job, a beautiful woman who would do anything to satisfy him, a terrific home in the right neighborhood, and a wife who was probably beginning to assemble another of her sumptuous dinners. “Ahh,” he sighed.

“You’d better get dressed,” she cautioned.

“Go ahead, I’ll be about five minutes behind—we don’t want anyone guessing what we’ve been doing.”

When she was gone, he fetched the slip of paper from his pants’ pocket.

Julie, he thought, figuring she was the statuesque redhead he’d seen at the restaurant. He smiled. “Now how’d you get your number into my fortune cookie?” he asked himself, and punched the number into his cell phone.

“This is Julie.”

“I got the message you left in the fortune cookie,” he said, thinking she had a sexy voice.

“Thank you for calling, Mr. Murdock, I’m your wife’s divorce lawyer.”
