Friday Fictioneers – Perfectly Good Guitar

Author’s Note: So, after a 6 month hiatus due to school and issues related, I finally have started posting stories again. My goal is to post one 1,000+ word story every week (likely on Sunday KST), and let people have at it. So, Sunday, I posted the first of a series that I plan to work on over this next year. Warriors of Honor is a series that details the life of five young ladies and how they deal with dual lives and faith. Two of the stories have been printed before on this blog, and they are going to be edited and released soon. However, if you like, you can read the first and main character of our series, The Fire Sniper. It is available for you to look over and enjoy. And don’t forget to comment! Now…onto the Fictioneers!

A Perfectly Good Guitar

by Miles H. Rost

“You have to make a choice. The guitar,” she said, pointing at the 1971 Les Paul Custom in the chair, “or me.”

“Corinne, how long have I been in music?” Mike asked.

“23 years.”

“How long have we known each other.”

“10 years.”

“How long have I had that guitar?”

“20 years.”

“Yep. A gift from Richie. Now, how did I meet you?”

“Through Richie.”

“That’s right. Now, how long do you think I will have this guitar for? And how long would I have you?”

She blinked at him, unsure of what to do.

He picked up and smashed the guitar on the ground.

“I had the guitar for 20 years. I’ll have you for the rest of my life. C’mere.”
