Words for Wednesday
Delores from ‘Under The Porch Light’ offers six words as a writing prompt – flirtatious, blurred lines, headstone, vixen, discerning and fish. Once again she is testing our numeracy as well as our imaginationsJ. Why not visit her and see what other writing has been prompted?
Fishing was a pleasant pastime at any time but today she had added purpose. Her hair shone rich and red in the late afternoon sun as she hastened to the water’s edge. There were fat river trout basking in the shallows and she was adept at capturing them. She was discerning in her choice – she wouldn’t take just any fish. No, it had to be perfect for her swain.
Soon she had her prize and hurried off to their meeting place. The cemetery was an ideal rendezvous – peaceful, secluded. He was already there, studying the blurred lines on the headstones. Shyly she presented him with the shining fish and looked under her lashes at him. His white teeth gleamed as he took the gift. ‘How handsome he is,’ she thought, watching as he bit into the firm flesh, the scales silvering his black nose. He left a little for her and she rubbed her head against his as he murmured, ‘I love you, my flirtatious vixen.’
