I’m working my way back from some very stuck days. Back to fiction and my wonderful group of Fictioneers. Admittedly, I struggled with this photo; inspiration was limited. But it seems the best way to get unstuck is to simply move forward, one step in front of the other.
If you’d like to join this wonderful group of storytellers, visit Rochelle Wisoff-Field’s blog Addicted Purple for more details. Each week she posts a photo prompt, and members write a 100-word story. This week’s photo was provided by Rochelle.
This Day and Each Day Forward
“Say it again– tell me you love me.”
Jessie gazed into Kate’s eyes and kissed her. She giggled– his day old beard tickling her cheek.
“Tell me,” she murmured.
“I love you more than I can say, sweet wife. I’ll spend the rest of our lives telling you that.”
Kate threw her hands across the downy pillows and gazed up at the intricate ceiling and chandelier.
Dappled sunlight filtered through the curtains, as they lay together– the first day of married life.
“One day I’ll be a fine gentleman, like your father, and we shall have chandeliers in every room.”
