Wear – Six Sentence Story

George loved to stir-fry Steve’s faults. Every now and then he force-fed Steve a taste. Steve himself had a kettle of righteousness in which he boiled every embarrassing detail he could recall or invent from George’s past.

Although this provided some satisfaction for these two friends, it never satisfied them long enough to stop.

Since so far nothing major happened neither expected anything to wear down as a result of their mischief. When it did both knew the other side needed to apologize though neither knew how they could bring themselves to forgive should that happen.


Denise offers the word “wear” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

      I like the description of that tie in your story being a magnet for food.
