flash fiction friday #29

as requested, a starter, literally triggering fff#29: as much/little as...
rules of engagement:
you will send in your suggestions for flash fiction friday triggers (starter sentences/phrases, closers, titles, inclusions, etc.) anytime during the week up to 11.55a.m. friday, trinbago timezone; i will post the new fff trigger by noon friday trinbago timezone.*
if your trigger is not chosen and you think it is too brilliant not to be chosen, you will send it in again the next week.
you will write an anecdote, short story, or novel length prose poem using the trigger provided.
you will add comments and appropriate linkage to my trigger-post indicating your desire to participate and the completion of your piece (don't need a blogger/gmail account to comment on my blog).
you may join in at any time prior to the deadline.*
you will display your piece as a post on your own blog (or as a comment on my trigger-post or fasbook note or whatever, once we can all read it- please make sure we can all access the link to read it, not just those who are your friends on fasbook; there's a way to create public links for that, right?).
you will be done by monday noon trinbago timezone.*[in light of collective busyness and my general mentality, i not pressed about these deadlines 'cause i'd rather have fun reading late than never, so if you want to fff past deadline, go through hard, just make sure you comment on the appropriate trigger-post so we know which it belongs to, and if is a real old trigger, comment on the most recent post as well so we know something new to back-back+read...if nobody fffs i'll leave the same trigger up until at least 1person other than myself writes a piece]*
write fresh!
walk good.

Little as that man over there might seem to be, as much as he is more ego than person, that man, that very loud obnoxious man, who can make my life a living hell in the very drop of some spilt milo that very man is the only man i could say i love.
Yes it impossible for me to believe too. I mean i try all how eh, to ignore him, and to keep him out of my heart and soul, but damn if he eh have a way about him that does pull and tug on the secret side of me. Yuh know that side? That side people does whisper does exist in me, that they think i have but they eh too sure? Well that bitch of a man just walked in and tore down all my walls, my sacred walls that have kept my lonely ass, alone but safe for all these years, HE!!! that bastard!!!! came and got rid of them all in a blink.
Hmmm, after so long of me staying safe, now what am i to do eh, what can i even try to do.
"Elroy!!!!! Yuh dinner ready and on de table, come inside and eat before it get cold!"
"Woman! I tell you i want food? When i ready i will come! Ah Chuts man! Always trying to tell me what to do...."
"When yuh see it end up in de garbage and yuh ass hungry yuh go know!"

Yes watch him playing big man for the boys, but i know he hungry, and he know i know he hungry, and i see the lil smile he cover up when i call him, and he was watching as i cook and lay it out for him. Imagine that eh, i cooking and puttin out food for a man, and not just any man eh, but HE!
"After all that nagging it better taste good eh..."
You think i go answer he with that? Never! I will however, sit here with him, make sure he has enough juice, and that it cold just the way he like it, and watch him eat, and swallow whole those sweet perfect lil smiles and the glimmer in his eyes, as he cleans that plate of food i cook, and enjoy it.
Why? Because what i made out of love and with my hands for him, he relish and love and even need and appreciate it. We will never tell each other that, but sometimes, well actually most times, love is about the doing and showing, an not really about the talking and mamaguying.

"And doh cook that same ting again tomorrow eh...i eh want that again for de week...."
"Well thank goodness i mean after yuh eat it every damn day last week, i was hoping for ah ease up..."
