100 Word Challenge – Week 65: One in a Million

“I remember when we first came here, don’t you?”
Only the ambient nature answered him.
“The storm had come out of nowhere, drenching us down to the bone,”
Swaying leaves traced over a wrinkled crown as he touched the orange splotch.
“And yet we couldn’t stop laughing…why were we doing that…I don’t remember…”
A light wisp sent the wind through his weathered fingers.
“…even sopped in mud and soaked in water, you looked so beautiful…”
Breaching the clouds, a sliver of sun kissed his now tear-stained cheeks.
“I told you I loved you…now they are going to cut it down…”


My entry for this week’s 100 Word Challenge from Julia’s Place. Inspired by both the picture and this song.

I won’t lie, this has been a rough week already, so I’m not sure how much I will be writing in the immediate future. a lot of things are changing and changing quickly. Still, this one came together so very perfectly.

I hope you all enjoy!

    Lovely work with this, Shade. Great use of descriptive yet subtle text – it’s in the perfect amounts for each passage. I especially like the way you traded dialogue and description between lines. Very nice structure that’s not easy to pull off in any situation, but works beautifully, here.

    Hope you’re all right, and that your recent events don’t put too much stress on you. If you want to chat, you know my email.

    Best to you!
