Bringing Light – Friday Fictioneers

‘Tis Wednesday, is it not?  Yes, yes it is.  So that means we receive the photo prompt from Rochelle some time during the hours we are hopefully in the arms of Morpheus.  Unless you live across the pond, that is.  That said, here I am, looking at David Stewart‘s beautiful photo thinking… I got nuthin’.  I’m gonna have to steal Tannille’s idea and have a fight with my muse.  Instead, I showed it to my youngest and asked, “What do you see?” The answer was “Romance”.  Okay then. Romance it is!  Click on my lover frogs below if you come up with something yourself and would like to share and add your link.  Or read other stories.  Up to you, of course.

Bringing Light

They sat, nestled, on a bench in the square. He held her hand, drawing circles in her palm with his finger.

It was a beautiful evening, the sky a deep violet, their faces lit by the fountain’s glow, its spray barely misting them.

“You are like that flower to me,” he said, his voice, low and gentle.

“Why is that? she asked, turning to him so she could look see his face.

“You are the bright spot in my life. You shine like that flower and bring light into my world.”

Her eyes brimmed with tears. “I love you, too.”

  1. Q

    Thank you for not doing a Vegas story, seriously.

    Romance was a nice way to go, what with fountains and the wishes they inspire in lovers everywhere. And I love the line “You are the bright spot in my life. You shine like that flower and bring light into my world” in reference to the light shone on them by that flower in the fountain. Beautifully done.

    Love this.

  2. Tannille and the muse are impressed. You came up with a ridiculously sweet story. Your inner child served you well. I’ll have to try it next time the muse is being difficult, but I fear another vomit story.

    Still think you could make a killing writing romance…

    • Thank you, Jilly. I didn’t oppose to his idea as that is where I considered going and this was a proper push. And yes, it is refreshing for a guy to suggest that one.


    • Oh stop it!
      And yes, I am so glad so many went the romantic route this week (I’m a little done with the whole virus shite, to be honest)
      I loved yours because it felt so real!

  3. It’s lovely when someone tells you how special you are to them. Lucky girl in your story! Although, on re-reading, I’m intrigued to realise that while the man drew circles on her palm, and paid her an elaborate compliment, she was the one who said, “I love you too”. I do hope she isn’t going to be let down.

    • It is lovely… And no, she understood his telling her that she was his light was the same as telling her he loved her.
