The Goddess and the Scoundrel – 365 Flash Fiction #59

“The Beast not the Goddess” he said
“You should not refer someone as a beast” She replied
“So you are ok with the Goddess reference…?”
“yes… better than beast…”
“But you can’t have just one… you can’t choose… if you like Goddess then you should also like the reference of the beast”
“Then I don’t want either….” She kept quiet and continued “what is wrong with you men… you can’t look at us as women as equals to you… Why is it that you have to either fall at our feet or fight us as rivals…..”
“That’s how we are made…. we men…”
“That is so lame….. so irritating…..”
“Maybe…. but you know we men know how to treat you…..”
“Aha! that’s good to hear…. when you come around with your hanging demon…” she was silent.. “And that too some… some just become the beast…..”
“Are you angry…?” He asked
“With you…?… No”
“Not with me… with you… Are you angry that you are not a man….”
“Why should I be…?…. Are you sad you are one…?”
“I asked the question first…..”
“I know…. but ladies first… so answer me….”
“See the privilege you people get…”
“Yes…. now you talk about privileges….. have you always been like this…?”
“Like what….”
“Like this… irritating…. chaunist….like this..” She threw the pista shells she was holding in her hand…..
He playfully ducked and moved away and stood a bit far and said “Not really…. But sometimes… with very close people….”
“And I am close….?”
“I did not say that…. we are just getting to know…..”
“Getting to know…? You scoundrel….” She laughed….
“See that’s what I said you call me a scoundrel and then say I am irritating….”
“You are…..”
“You are what…? scoundrel or irritating…”
“Both….”
“But one should weigh over the other…. which one….”
“The scoundrel…..”
“And you….?”
“The Goddess…..”
“But I like the beast…..”
“Who asked your liking…. I am what I am.. and you are what you are…. a scoundrel”
“OK Goddess is fine…”
“Cool…” She smiled at him “thats better… the Goddess and the Scoundrel…. “
“Fine… but lets see how good the fireworks are… if not we will have the beast… the beast and the scoundrel……”
“You are irritating…..”
“No I am a scoundrel……”
