“Split Peas” in Orange Blossom Review

by Jeff Fleischer

The new issue of Orange Blossom Review is out, and it includes my short story “Split Peas” about a couple that never quite worked out.

An excerpt:

Walter still didn’t understand why Victoria felt the need to spit in his beer.

When they were dating, they kissed all the time. Deeply, nearly always using their tongues. In the three years they were together, he must have swallowed several pints’ worth of her saliva. It wasn’t like a few drops of it here and there were going to hurt him.
