This microfiction story is for the prompt "extra dose". It reminds me of individuals who require a bit more care in the friend relationship. Viciousness should never be accepted or appeased. However, the old saying, "kill 'em with kindness", goes a long way to preserving your own sanity and the relationships if they are worth saving.

My story for this ZAPFIC50 flash fiction addresses such friend relationships and is told in exactly 50 words. The challenge was created by @felt.buzz.

I based my 50-word story on @mariannewest's Freewrite prompt: Day 1841: 5 Minute Freewrite: Sunday - Prompt: extra dose. If you'd like to join in from the daily prompts, visit @mariannewest's Profile.

Below is my story.

Arriving early, Jeanette and friend, Christy, assisted the hostess by greeting others.

Christy fumed as she couldn't believe the hostess invited Jeanette's ex-husband's new wife.

The hostess smiled broadly as Jeanette approached. "Thanks for inviting Charley's wife. Lots to discuss."

Turning to Christy, Jeanette winked, saying, "Gonna need two cocktails!"

Hello. Yes, you are correct. I think that liquid courage and a good attitude on how to handle a new wife and a disloyal friend saved her day...or rather night!

Thanks for your visit and support. I appreciate it.
