Awakening – Friday Fictioneers

Good Friday, my friends!  I cannot believe I missed you all last week!  It’s been hellish days of working odd hours and not having the time to read all of my fellow FF pals’ pieces, so I totally bypassed the last one.  If I cannot participate by reading at least some of yours, then I cannot expect you to read mine, right?  Reciprocation is key in this challenge.

That said, here I am on Friday instead of Wednesday or Thursday – which is cool, it IS after all Friday Fictioneers, right?  I thought I would be able to on Wednesday morning, but that meant writing before having to leave for work for 10:30 am.  Then, I figured, that’s okay, I’ll write it when I got back.  Finished work at 1:00 a.m.  Yes, you read that right!  I worked 14 hours on Wednesday… So… I figured I’d write yesterday but it was my baby’s 18th birthday so I had his cake to make, my hair to be done – no, not for his birthday but to hide my silver “highlights” that mysteriously appear at the roots every 6 weeks or so… 😉 – and I just plain had an appointment for that day!  Good time was had by all and well, here I am.  Just before I leave for the first of the last three days at the golf club!  Wooo hoooo!

So, now that I’ve bored you all to tears with my overlong intro, let us get down to business.  Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for always being there to keep us in line.  This week, thank you goes to Roger Bultot for this beautiful photo.  Do join us by adding your 1oo-word story inspired by Roger’s photo!  Click on the blue frog to add yours.

Awakening

The morning sunlight caressed her face and shoulders. Stretching languorously, her foot slid along his leg.  She opened her eyes to find him looking at her, head resting on his bent arm, a slight smile on his lips.

“Good morning, You,” she smiled and kissed him. “How long have you been awake?”

“Not long. I was enjoying watching you sleep.  You were smiling; were you dreaming?”

“I was thinking of us.  I can’t believe how comfortable we are together.  Is it possible to feel this way this soon?”

“I feel it, too.”

“I never thought I would find love again.”

  1. What a lovely, uplifting story, with a gorgeous sensual opening.
    I hope you have a good break at the golf club. I related so much to your planning to write and then being thwarted – happens to me all the time too.

    • Thank you so much, Sarah Ann.
      I cannot wait for Sunday (though they are calling for rain so fingers crossed I get called to NOT come in! 😉)

  2. I totally understand the hectic situations life throws at us from week to week. September was a month from hell, then just when I thought October was heaven-sent, it became worse then September. When I can’t write, I try to read others’ flash fiction just to participate somehow.

    Life aside, I love the sleepy, romantic tranquility here. Feels like I need some of that injected into my life about now. 🙂

    • Thank you Fatima! June and July were crap weather-wise so golf season was “meh”. Then came September and October with the fantabulous weather – and the return of the students to school. Oy! All of a sudden, we were doing hours like crazy. Tomorrow is my last day! Yay! (And they are calling for rain so maybe today is my last…)

      So very glad you enjoyed my little tale…

  3. Love the soft mellow feel of this romantic tale. Nice take on the prompt. Good luck to you in the NaNoWriMo.

  4. Hey Dale I totally agree with your intro about reading and reciprocating. Writing IS reading. That said and done, I loved your overly long intro. Not boring. Not at all. I love hearing about bloggers and writers. It is the mundane that makes us. That said and done, I LOVE this story. I really do. It felt so personal, so beautiful. Made me tearful and smile at the same time. No mean feat. Well done!

  5. Well, as the song goes, “Love is wonderful the second time around.” Evocative piece, Dale.

    And I try really hard to read and comment on every single entry. I might take me all week to get there, but I know how much it means to me when people read and comment.

    • Happy you enjoyed, Linda.
      I do too. Sometimes I just can’t get to them all but I sure do try! It’s nice to be read and appreciated and to return the favour.
