Charli Mills at Carrot Ranch Literary community has given the word “mesh” for this weeks flash fiction challenge. Here is my offering using mesh as a verb. This is the link https://carrotranch.com/2017/11/16/november-16-flash-fiction-challenge-2/.
“Melding two people in marriage is like weaving your personalities into a strong mesh. Today I know your special mesh is as fine as Lilly’s wedding veil. It is my duty to warn you, life will present trials that will stretch the spaces and even create holes. Disputes can be about anything from whether to have children, how to spend your money, or deal with in-laws. I challenge you to never let your mesh get a hole in it. Do you accept my challenge?”
The reverend eyed the bride’s family as the beaming couple answered in unison, “We do.”
