Georgia Peach (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

“O-ho!” booms the voice, the hand pumping Torry’s hand, “so this is Allan’s juicy Georgia peach I’m finally getting to meet!”

Torry worms her hand away, bristling.

“I’m not his anymore,” she snaps, “we’ve been divorced for a year now. And I was never any Georgia peach either. I was merely in college there when we met.”

“Well, I sincerely apologize if I gave any offense,” her fellow convention goer concedes, “and you’re right, you surely ain’t no peach.”

Each week, Ivy at Uncharted hosts the Six Sentence Stories flash fiction blog hop. This week’s six is a vignette from The Life and Times of Jane Doe; the cue was “peach.” Fun sixes from other authors are here. Join us!

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

      1. Sorry, Deborah. I understood the intention of your story only after reading UP’s comment and a little help from Google. Now, I am laughing at myself.😀😀😀

      2. Yes, it’s an expression from the American South. I imagine it wouldn’t make much sense if you haven’t come across it before. We taught each other something this week!

  1. Well that intro certainly didn’t go well, did it? She may not be a peach in his eyes, but I like her spirit, she says what she thinks and put him right in his place. Can you tell that I am not fond of men who come on strong and overbearing?! 🙂 Great little story!

  2. I suspect they will both be avoiding the other at that convention. They got off to a very rough and awkward start, and most likely one that isn’t going to get any better.
    Good SSS.
