Friday Fictioneers – Chocolate Eyes


She needed band for extra school credits. 

Pointing, Mr. Cohen said, “Pick out a clarinet. I’ll get a new mouthpiece.”

Her friend Dominique teased her about the cute boy near the instruments. 

“Stop! He’s probably dating.” 

“Nope, I heard he’s not. Besides, he’s looking at you.” 

“From who? Is he?” 

“I have my sources.”

“Well, I’m not interested.”

“I have my clarinet; see you inside.” 

As Dominique passed the boy, she winked and gave him the okay sign.

“Need some help,” he said approaching her.

No, I do not,” curtly, while dying inside.

‘Oh, those luscious chocolate eyes are yummy.’

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. I want to see this girl turn into a genius clarinet player who marries the maestro boy. Perhaps they can both get past their shyness and create beautiful music together. Bien Escrito y dulce. To think it is a fine Scottish name coming from the Scottish highlands. boys can be shy in high school when meeting girls. It’s a good twist to put in the story.


  2. Oh, the dance of young love. I’m so glad I’m not young anymore. =) Nicely written dialogue. Very well done!

    • Yes, Dale. The high school discoveries everyone goes through. Thanks for the great photo. I’m glad you enjoyed my story choice. Be Safe 😷 … Isadora 😎
      ps – in June, my middle daughter will be marrying a Rogerson. Does that mean we’re related? LOL

        Oooh… How cool is that? The only Rogersons in my neck of the woods are my two sisters and me!

        • Is that your maiden name?
          Her husband-to-be is a Dallas, Texas boy. He loves to call himself a hillbilly. LOL They live in South Carolina.


          • Yes, here in Quebec, we are not even allowed to change names! If I did, I’d be a MacIsaac and that’s not a fun name to sign 😉
            Hillbilly! Oh lordy… To think it is a fine Scottish name coming from the Scottish highlands!

            • I just learned something new, Dale. I don’t know how the changing of ones maiden name came about but we can ask Rochelle to do a history check. 😊 I think I like the name MacIssac. It sounds regal. Do your children get your name or their fathers name when they’re born? I’m finding this fascinating.
              I’m not familiar with my future son-in-laws ancestry or the Scottish Highlands. I did have a friend who belonged to a Scottish group here. He had his official heritage plaids and outfits he’d wear to their events. He passed before I could learn more about it.
              Have a superb week … Be Safe 😷

              • Only in Quebec are we not even allowed to take our husband’s name since 1981. Because we like to be distinct. 🙄 Of course, I could have paid to have it changed but honestly… too much effort. And it’s funny. The only thing my mother hated about getting married was losing her name. The second they separated, she took her maiden name back!
                As for the kids, the options are there. They can carry the mother’s or the father’s or hyphenated with either mother and father or father and mother – everything to make things complicated. My kids bear MacIsaac. It is a very nice name.
                Both Rogerson and MacIsaac are Scottish and we each have our tartans – though we belonged to larger clans like the MacDonald’s.
                Have a fabulous week, you too!

                • Aahhh yes, tartans, is what my firend called it. You must have done an ancestry search. I’ve never done it. I’m fearful I may find skeletons I’d prefer to not know about. LOL
                  Thanks for sharing this with me, Dale. I appreciate your taking the time. Happy Tuesday 😍 Be Safe 😷

  9. I wonder if she will live to regret that curt rejoinder. Some boys just don’t come back a second time.
