“Why are you laughing?” he asked, looking charming.

He was wearing a sort of zip-up oatmeal-colored turtleneck.

She smiled recalling all the shoes she’d known.

How interesting it was going to be walking on the beach with these on.

“Would it help if I gave you my arm to hold?”


“What if I carried you?”

“That would work.”

    1. Don’t you dare. But, I’m so glad you laughed at that flash fiction piece. One hundred words on the button.


      hope to hear soon the suspense is killing me — I was using dry pastels today, not oils but, did I ever get the looks and compliments on those two.
      same beach with the canyon sunflowers — no, it’s a locals beach nearby my place? Not the nice one I showed you.
