The Stoic – Romance

copyright-managua-gunnIf the eyes were the window to the soul, he had none. Fortunately deeds revealed more than his eyes. He was a kind and thoughtful man – one the neighbors could always depend on. If he knew they made fun of him, he gave no indication.
Why did a woman fall in love with such a man? He said so little – didn’t even smile. He left flowers on her doorstep when her cat died. When she was sick he cooked chicken noodle soup for her. Words weren’t necessary to express love. And yet she wanted to hear those words.

This week’s Friday Fictioneer photo prompt was by Managua Gunn. Thanks to Rochelle Wiseof-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers.

  1. Nice one, enjoyed the sentiments.

  2. I enjoyed your take a lot. Women like to hear words it seems, although he seems like such a lovely man.

  3. The choices we make about those we love, thinking that certain things are more important than others, and then realizing that the things we overlooked, we still need.

  4. Dear Linda,

    A bittersweet story. Nice one.


  5. A lovely story…action should speak more than words.. but still we long to hear them… (BTW – your link points at the wrong page)

  6. This is a good example of how differently people express love and the need to be comfortable with the differences if you’re in a relationship. Talking about it might help!


  7. Yeah! Very good! I like it!
