Oh what fun this week's challenge was! I can't wait to pop around and see what everyone else came up with.
The idea (from the fabulous brain of Susan Peterson Wisnewski): Write a piece of flash fiction (less than 150 words) using these three words: chocolate, candle, scarf.
Oh what fun this was. In the end, I not only managed to keep it short (58 words!) but turned it into a visual piece. I didn't have Paul Wesley in mind when I wrote this (let's face it, I'm way more into Damon than Stephan on The Vampire Diaries) but once I started searching for images to put with the piece, he fit the bill nicely.
In case you can't see the image above, here's the story without the image.
Like a moth drawn to the flame of a single candle, I chase him. Run my fingers through his chocolate brown hair and offer my heart if he will just stay one more day. Tug at his thick scarf, a vain hope I can physically keep what I’ve emotionally lost. He concedes. But I know he’s already gone.
Now hop along and check out what my fellow Romance Weekly authors did with these three words, starting with Mikki Cober!
