True – #99wordstories

Written for Charli’s 99-word story. February 27, 2023, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a golden onion. Any golden onion. One planted or harvested. An onion chopped for a meal. How can you use an onion as a prop in a character’s hand? Go where the prompt leads! I have a TRUE story for this one!

Robin was fun at parties, until the night he did this!

We made some sandwiches but it wasn’t enough for Robert. He took my untouched pavlova out of my fridge and dug it from the bowl into his big mouth with my wooden spoon.

He wasn’t too happy when others decided they wanted some too.

To avoid sharing it, he went to the kitchen and returned with an onion; peeled, chopped, and sprinkled over my demolished pavlova.

Not only did he eat our Sunday dessert, but also the golden onion that was meant for the stew!

I barred Robin!

Real name has been changed to avoid embarrassment.

Thank you for reading! Before you go…

I enjoy writing about times gone by. My daily posts are written off the cuff and just for fun.

My novel Secrets in the Babby House is of a more serious nature and took more time and effort to put together. If you enjoy the jist of my writing you might enjoy reading my novel.

A story of love, deception, and stolen diaries filled with sins and secrets. Set in a gossipy small town in Ireland at a time when marriage is for keeps and sexuality is repressed, Secrets in the Babby House is a family saga over three decades that starts in 1956. 

Available on and Barnes and Noble

Here’s an Amazon preview if you’d like check it out!
