The Can of Peas

An original short story by Indigo Red.

Bob stood at the kitchen counter, a can of peas in his hand. He softly said, "Jill, this isn't working anymore."

Jill, sitting at the table nearby sipping from a mug of coffee as she navigated through her daily blog reads on the laptop, stopped and said, "No, Bob. It hasn't been working for quite some time."

Bob watched as Jill put down her coffee, slip her toes into her flip-flops, stand, and walk to the door. She picked up her already packed bag, opened the door, and stepped out closing the door behind her.

Bob stood in silence. After a few moments, he looked down at the can of peas he was still holding in his hand. He looked back to the door.

Bob said, "The can opener. It's not working anymore."

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.
