Challenge [flash 148]

Dream lover

The knocking woke her from a hazy dream about summer fun… turquoise waves and soft warm sand and being held in loving arms…

Oh, it wasn’t the door—a torrential hail storm had begun. When she peeked out the window, she spied clumps of ice littering the garden. Her poor tomato plants huddled together in a sad droopy mess. At least they had each other, she thought.

As she put water in the kettle, she knew it would be a challenge to forget the fantasy of him and get on with a new life. She couldn’t control her dreams, but she was in charge of her waking hours. She remembered reading that completing small, mundane tasks would help the healing process and get things back on track. She vowed to start today.

First on the list was cleaning the freezer and disposing of his body. It was time.

  2. It is a really nice picture, and I can see that on the book it says Jim Warren who wrote a bunch of combat books that don’t seem appropriate for that blonde.

  3. It looks like that holding in loving arms (plus perhaps some hanky panky) is going on in those clouds…
