FFfAW – Tic Tac Toe

My best friend in the whole wide world, Larna, was X and I was O. We were in a game of tic tac toe. It was important that I win. I must win! She had a new 10 speed bike and would let me ride it if I won the game.

I concentrated on winning this game, keeping that beautiful blue bike in the back of my mind.

She wrote in her X's and I quickly wrote in my O's.

Finally!! I won! I get to ride her new 10 speed!

Then I realized… she let me win the game.

  1. That was an adorable story. A story of winning in spite of defeat and a warm defeat in spite of winning. Friends are meant for this, I suppose!

  2. Loved the twist at the end, it is such a long time since I have heard the term tic tac toe. Lovely

  3. Wonderful tone and simple structure. Your words sound childlike and innocent. What a nice friend to let her win, but I also feel bad for her b/c she was trying so hard. Hope your summer is going well PJ. I guess we’re half-way through August & almost back at Fall, but I will enjoy it to the last warm day lol.

I would love to read your thoughts...
