I have to admit I loved this week’s prompt of romance from Carrot Ranch. I surprised myself with how much fun I had writing this! I am enjoying experimenting with different types of writing. After my first draft I wondered what it would be like to write a dialog between two people but only have one person be verbal. This is what I came up with:
“Your boyfriend and my wife, who would have thought it,” said Kris. “You really caught them in flagrante delicto?”
“You don’t seem too upset. So what are you going to do now?”
“What about Thanksgiving?”
“How about coming home with me to Chicago?”
I looked at Kris quizzically.
Kris gazed at me as he lightly touched the back of my hand. “Are you seriously going to continue to ignore the spark between us?”
I blushed. No. No reason to now, I thought as I leaned over and softly kissed him on the lips.
The Kris in the story may or may not be a certain 3rd baseman for the Chicago Cubs. And yes, I may or may not be way too old for him but that is the beauty of fantasy, ANYTHING can happen!
