The Letter

PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook Whew! That was close. She'd succeeded in shaking them--at least for now. The castle loomed ahead. She had to get there. Her uncle's dying words were, "Take...the...envelope...to...Sir Neville Langdon. He'll be at the...castle." The letter was a matter of national security. If it fell into the wrong hands... The knock …

Annie Sticks to Her Guns

Photo by Bill Reynolds “What do you have against Chuck?” Annie demanded.  “So what if he drives a truck instead of a fancy car like Arthur?” “Arthur’s a decent young man,” her mother informed her. “And Chuck isn’t?” Annie retorted. “Your father and I don’t think he’s suitable.” “Why not?” “How’s he going to provide …

A Fixed Car & a Friendly Chat

He finished paying the bill for the work done on his car and after thanking Adaeze, he left the shop. She was standing outside as if waiting for someone. She looked up and their eyes met. He hesitated and then, he walked up to her. "Hello," he said. "Hello." "Are you related to Adaeze?" he …

Michelle Makes a Move

Jason sat in his office, thinking about Karine. Last evening he had stopped by her place to see her but when he rang the doorbell, there was no answer. Perhaps she was working late. Disappointed, he returned to his flat. All night, he thought about what had transpired between them yesterday morning. He had been …

His Best Mechanic

“We’ll have your car ready by five,” Mr. Brown promised.  “She’s a beaut.”  His gaze ran admiringly over the sleek Bentley. “Thanks.  I’ve had her for ten years.  It’s my first time bringing her in for service.” “She’s in good hands.” “I’ll be back at five.” “Wow.  She’s purring like a cat.  Thank you, Sir.” …

The Shortcut

  She didn't like walking through the woods but it was a shortcut.  The trees stood tall and eerily silent.  It was creepy here in the daytime.  She hated to imagine what it must be like at night. As she went, the twigs cracking beneath her feet, she spotted a car on her right.  Its …

Busted

He sat in the unmarked car, watching and waiting.  He suspected that she was cheating on him.  Tonight his shift ended early so he drove over.  A red corvette was parked outside.  Last night it was a Fiat.  An hour later, he saw the guy leave.  He turned to open his car door, when he …

The Wedding

Her heart was racing.  She hoped she looked presentable in her V-neck floral knee length summer dress and the pair of wedges which she thought looked better than the pumps she had considered wearing.  To complete the look, she wore the lovely olive leaf pendant which Paolo had given her for her birthday. “Mama, incontrare Roxane, il …

The Barbecue

"You're not his type." If that smile were meant to take the sting out of her words it didn’t work.  Kay was smarting from it.  “I don’t mean to upset you, Kay, but I thought I would warn you because I have seen the way you look at Quinn every time you see him.  I …

The Candlelight Dinner

Renee got into her car and drove over to Callum’s flat.  He had invited her over for dinner.  When she told her friends, they were shocked.  They couldn’t believe that a bookworm had much of a social life.  They concluded that although he was very attractive, no woman would want to date a man who …
