A drabble for eggwhisker, who gave me a prompt of 'soft furnishings'. It turned out fluffy – hope it's okay!


"Ruth, it's purple."

"Yes, it is."

"It's purple."

"And what's wrong with that?"

"It's in my house."

"It's very comfortable."

"I'm sure it is, but –"

"And Harry, the rugby is still manly when you're watching it on a purple sofa, I promise."

"But…"

"You told me to buy soft furnishings. I even asked you what you wanted. You said 'something comfortable'. And it is comfortable. Come and try."

"… okay, it is comfortable."

"Well, then."

"But it's purple."

"It could've been pink. Or puce." She leant over and kissed him gently.

He swallowed. "I'll learn to live with it."


If anyone else wants a drabble/ficlet/some random fluffy words, leave a prompt and I'll do it, er, promptly.

Thanks for reading!
