‘Dad, they’ve returned the forms again!’ yelped an exasperated Fiona. ‘Please, this time, fill them in properly!’

‘I do darling,’ smiled George, ‘I only put what I’m asked’.

‘Dad, putting ‘I would love to but at my age I can’t get it up’ in the box marked sex isn’t funny!’

Coffee in hand Sue joined the others at their table.

‘Madeleine’s over there,’ she whispered.

‘Who’s Madeleine?’ enquired Lucy.

Lou and Evie turned to look.

‘For Christ’s sake don’t let her see you’, hissed Sue.

‘Who’s Madeleine?’ repeated Lucy.

‘I’m not sure it is her’, said Lou.

 ‘Who’s Madeleine?’ Lucy asked urgently.  

‘It is her!’ chorused Evie and Sue.

‘Who’s Madeleine?’ squeaked a frustrated Lucy.

‘She’s got a nerve,’ said Sue, ‘coming back here’.

‘Who’s Madeleine’, queried Lucy in a louder voice.

Lou and Evie nodded their agreement, ‘Especially, said Lou, after what she did.’

‘Who’, screeched Lucy, ‘is Madeleine?!’



 This is a drabble of 100 words 



The haiku is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. Jacqueline has used this form to create stories (nano-fiction).
