Your story was wonderful.

I've baked too many Snickerdoodles, as usual, and thought I'd share some here.

It's been over a week since the body shop said my car would be done in a week. LOL. I guess I will give them another day or two before I call again.

A cuppa tea with some lemon would be mighty tasty with a cookie or two!

I read the latest entries in the comp. Excellent storytelling!

I’ve got a couple of bottles of Moscato and a buncha glasses. Who’s in?

I honestly didn’t know if I was going to be able to make my story over 1000 words and then my fingers kept typing ans boom 1492 words!

Start pouring. It's a weekend.drunken

Length isn't a problem for me. The part of the story that is written is well past 1001 words (thinking 1700 or so without actually checking). It's actually making the narrative work.

I have great faith in you, Scott. Here, let me refill your glass.

I’ve read the three latest entries and damn, that’s some amazing writing. Fills up my own glass as well!

I shall await your story with baited breath. Or Moscato breath at least. Lol!

It seems the best sleep I’ve had this week was last night in a hotel room. (Traveled north for a grad party today).

Well, only if it comes with a glass of Moscato!

If it gets that bad, the glass is yours. I'll already have drunk the rest of the bottle. drunken

Sounds like I might need to bring my own bottle and share with you! Lol!

4989 words! I'm ready to enter! At 23:59:59 on July 18, of course.

Pour me a glass!

I'm Still Alive

The impact was sudden and fierce. But the fear didn’t set in until I saw the vehicle that rear-ended me rolling toward me. “I’m not ready to die,” I prayed out loud. Then I closed my eyes and let faith wash over me. When I opened my eyes again, the silver SUV was inches from my door. Miraculously, it was standing on its side instead of on top of me. I released the breath I didn’t know I...

When I'm Alone

Little things see me through the times when I’m alone. I slip on your t-shirt and inhale the faint scent of your cologne. Silly, I suppose, but it helps. I hug my pillow and hold on to the thought that you won’t be gone forever. The grandfather clock chimes half-past eleven. That cursed time difference always messes with my head! Should you have already called? Or am I fretting over nothing? ...

The Mermaid's Daughter

They say you’re like your father, just as I was like mine. But I see a part of me inside you, strong and stubborn. You lift that chin as if daring me to hold you back, but I won’t. How could I, when all I ever wanted was to be free? I chose my king and my life, and our coupling brought you to me. But it’s time for you to build your own kingdom, and to make your own life. I am so proud...

Last Night at Sunset

Last night at sunset, I waited for you. My love illuminated the sky, painting a vibrant mural with which to end your day. You stood on the shore, looking lost and alone. I wish I could touch you and let you know how much you are loved. But time was cruel and swept me away. Now all I can do is flood the sky with color and hope that you know it’s me, loving you, needing you, wanting...

The Cry of the Dolphin

She sat by the water’s edge, watching the dolphins play. She wished he were still here, reminding her to be careful or telling her the same joke he’d told time after time. She could feel his presence so strongly by the water. It brought her comfort to know that he’d been proud of her, that his last breath had been to tell her he loved her. It was the kind of closure many people never get....

Time Passes

He loved her enough to let her go, and she loved him enough to come back. Each year, true to her word, she returned to the sea. Although she was grown, he still cautioned against the forces of evil. When she found true love, he accepted him. And when she gave him grandchildren, he delighted in them. Time passed, and the king was near death. “You’ll be queen soon,” he said softly. “I...

Breaking Free

“I hate you!” she cried; her temper as fiery as her hair. “I don’t wish to punish you, but to keep you safe!” he said sadly. “I lost your Mother to the land; I cannot bear to lose you, too!” Her misery broke his heart, but his duty was to protect her. Eventually, contempt grew heavy in her heart. Accepting fate, she reached for her father’s hand. “I love you!” she cried as their hands...

Trapped Beneath the Surface

“Stay below the waterline,” her father always said. But she was a redhead; she was stubborn and didn’t listen. She often defied him and would sneak out of their watery kingdom and head to the cove. Once there, she would not only poke her nose above the waterline, she would also lift herself up out of the sea and onto the rocks near the dry land. She craved the sunshine of the human world...

Recommended Read The Sweetest Destination

As they sat watching the sun dipping into the blue-green water of the gulf, they sighed. It wasn’t the vacation they had planned, that was for sure. They’d spent the past two years planning an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime trip to Africa. Their chosen destination was Kenya, where they would have spent eight days on a safari, two nights at the Giraffe Manor, and one final night at a luxury hotel...
