Club – Six Sentence Story

Believing the best way to deal with someone was not to beat him over the head with a club Brian manipulated George with psychology. George, on the other hand, preferred the club.

Over the years these two friends found lovely brides and got married raising children who had children until Brian died which made George wonder if he should have used the club less often. Without Brian’s subliminal influence George felt the only thing left to do was grow old.

That was when an undeserved miracle gave George a wallop knocking some sense back into him and letting him know he wasn’t quite dead yet. After that the grandchildren longed to hear his tall tales while his own children listened and even his wife respectfully responded to his loving touch which frankly shocked him but not as much as it pleased her like an answered prayer.


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

Ephesians 5:33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” (KJV)

  1. Funny how a common, (ok, maybe not ‘common’ in a massive quantity sense, more in (an) everyday sense), saying can acquire an additional overtone.

    Your ‘undeserved miracle’… nice

    miracle being, of course, such a gigantic, (if not, ‘boundless’), idea and ‘undeserved’, well common as dirt.
    interesting Six this week.

  2. Marriage like life is an evolving process. A pity married couples don’t stick together for long these days. They would find out that marriage does get better with time. Good for George finding redemption.
