Weekend Writing Prompt #91

wk-91-helter-skelter


They lay there on the private beach wrapped in each others’ arms, their clothes strewn helter-skelter on the sand.  Sunlight gleamed on their naked bodies.  This wasn’t something she ever imagined herself doing, an introvert and circumspect older woman frolicking with a younger man in the open.  Was it loneliness or the desire to love and be loved which drove her to act so recklessly?  Was it wrong to want some excitement in her life?

What would her family and friends think? Should she care?  Wasn’t she entitled to some happiness too?  So what if she had found it with a man she met on a cruise?  This was her life.

      1. Thanks for sending yours to me. I really, really enjoyed reading it. You did an amazing job with the prompt. Yes, that second kind of helter-skelter is more like it. It’s one of your own choosing. Good for you, Rochelle 🙂
