Bygone Days. It’s a 6.

“I don’t understand, we were so close. She had always shared her deepest thoughts with me, her dreams, her frustrations, her fears. We had a connection I thought would last forever… I was her only confidante… she’d found comfort, security with me and now- now I feel totally abandoned, neglected and so very, very lonely. Not exactly how I imagined the rest of our lives; I miss her!”

“You and me both, Pad, she hasn’t picked me up in, well, I can’t even remember when, seems she spends more time with that other one, that machine.”

“No machine can do for her what you and I have all these years, Pen, not a one.”

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. The calendar flips to another week’s beginning. Time once again for the Sunday Reveal for the upcoming Six Sentence Stories challenge! And the prompt word to use is…right down there. See? Underneath the rules of the hop 🙂 Expectation. It’s automatic sometimes. You might say it has the ability to hijack spontaneity now and then but here, at SSS, you never know what to expect! Which is precisely what makes it such an enjoyable writing challenge. I hope everyone has fun with their stories this week. Write well, write often and have a fabulous week!

Words in sepia. It’s a 6.

Image result for noir beach odessa

sky meets horizon, magic the union

ocean backdrop soothes all but the most hardened

hearts once inseparable, now lay splintered

shards of intimacy scattered upon the sands

 discarded like the wrapping on a long forgotten gift

two paths diverging, in final unison, a wave farewell

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. It’s Sunday aka Prompt Word Day for this coming Thursday’s Six Sentence Story blog hop. What a marvelous round of Sixes last week!

If you haven’t written a Six yet, I hope you’ll consider doing so this week. It’s a boatload of fun, there’s an incredible array of fabulous reading and the best part is you’ll meet people from all over the world. How cool is that! Have a fantastic week everyone and I’ll look for you and your muse a little later in the week 🙂

PROMPT WORD:  WAVE

“Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that’s the whole art and joy of words.”

Tome. Always and forever. It’s a 6.

I fell, feather floating freely, into a full embrace. Feeling immediate comfort, it was a place familiar. Unconditional acceptance, disappointment rare, I was home. Falling together upon the 4 poster bed, clutched in my hands my escape awaited, loyal and steadfast. I submitted secure in the knowledge, in spite of fear or uncertainty, comfort awaited. While our relationship had grown sporadic over the years it never lost its spontaneity or sense of fun and so I indulged in a good old fashioned, old school murder mystery by none other than the Dame herself.
