Anything Can Happen Wednesday. It’s a 6

Revelation surreptitiously slipped in through the side door, almost unnoticed; slinked towards center stage left. There, Revelation paused, beckoning from behind the red scrim.

To say I was taken completely unaware was an understatement, as I believed myself to be clueless that I’d asked the question for which I now, so mysteriously and ceremoniously, received the answer.

Revelation queried “you doubted I would appear, doubted I would surface from the darkest depths from which you so consigned me?”

My voice, self-consciously contrite, echoed in the great hall, “it was not my intention, it was my nemesis, the consummate salesman, dynamic destroyer, Fear, lead me astray.

Revelation, hearing a curtain call I could not, proclaimed in parting, “I am, always, if you learn to see, the answer to the questions you ask as you sleep.”

― Maya Angelou

Pulling up the Bootstraps. It’s a 6.

Some of you have read an excerpt or two from my wip, “Annaliese’s Dream”… today, I offer another. Hope you enjoy.

 * * * * * * * * * * *

The wedding dress, off white, silk satin A line, off the shoulder sleeveless, hung on the bedroom closet door like a solitary oak leaf resisting fall’s inevitable call to winter, shrine to the day that never was.

Waking slowly, Annaliese shaded half opened eyes from a light too bright, beaming through the windows, the sun already risen for more hours than she’d been asleep. She couldn’t remember exactly when she’d gone to bed, didn’t really care; having no interest in getting up, she rolled over, arms reaching for Ian’s side of the bed.

Instead of  feeling her fiancé’s warm, well muscled flesh, instead of seductively sliding over for some early morning spooning, her hands felt the still chilled contours of a bottle tangled up in the blankets; a distant light bulb began to glimmer. Señor Patrón had beckoned a little after midnight; her welcome wearing thin at her own pity party, Annaliese gave herself fully and willingly, despair having dispatched her closer to the edge of the cliff.

Months had passed since the Feds last came to the house searching for whatever it was they were searching for; her own novice detective work having produced nothing, she was no closer to learning about what clearly was Ian’s double life, until last night when she literally, in a gesture of nostalgic self-indulgence, stumbled on their joint “pack, re-pack, go through later” box; there, buried beneath their memories, hiding in plain sight, was a tablet.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Six Sentence Stories! Whether seasoned writer or still coming along, I present, imo, no better tool for improving one’s skills than this writing challenge, the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. I don’t know about you but for me, writing a Six is a little like the occasional lover’s spat (only on a weekly basis, lol).  A cornucopia of feeling that ultimately works through frustration and stubbornness to find the proper resolution of words. Words that form the sentences that tell a story of people and places once un-imagined. Each week writers from across the planet gather here to share our collective imagination, 6 sentences at a time. Join us this week?

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! So, have I thanked you guys lately for participating in this, my favorite blog hop? If not, (and I don’t think I have) THANK YOU! Funny, when we think back on how we arrived at a certain place in our lives, doing certain things, there comes a day we exclaim “what?! how in the world did that happen?”. Hosting the SSS is kinda like that for me. I took the reigns from Zoe/IvyWalker who was passed the baton from the creator/mastermind of the hop, Josie Two Shoes and well, here we are. For we, who enjoy/love writing, who must write, I hope to read your Six Sentence Stories for a long time to come 🙂 For those folks (hi,Chelsea!) who stop in every now and then to read them, thank you as well. Have a marvelous week, write often, read more and I’ll catch you back here in a few days.

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading.”
Ray Bradbury

Comebacks can Happen. It’s a 6.

What do you mean it was just another football game?!  That game was totally epic. You realize it was the first time any team in the history of the NFL came back from that kind of deficit to win the championship right, I mean we’re talking 25 point comeback late in the 3rd quarter!

As our increasingly animated conversation continued amid the late night crowd at Grevey’s Sports Bar, I could feel the echo of energy and excitement tingling like an undercurrent just below the surface of my skin; it was as if I’d watched the most memorable Super Bowl game only yesterday.

I reached across the table – here, give me your phone; I’ll show you the history that was made. Watch this, and tell me it is not an awesome display of athleticism, teamwork and talent!
