Cherished Love


is my choice for C this week for ABC Wednesday.

And the choice stems from Write Tribe's prompt of 55 Fiction. This is my first attempt at 55 Fiction and I found it hugely challenging.




Calm and composed, she gazed at the clouds.
Confusion and turmoil carefully masked.
Crushing pain tearing her heart apart.
Crying was futile. He was gone, a charismatic young life cruelly snuffed out. "Why?" she silently lamented.
Closing her eyes she saw his captivating smile, felt his comforting arms. Memories bringing her joy.
Love cherished forever.


Write Tribe


Have a cool day.

Warm Regards

    3. The good old Bombay days were great. A facelift is not too bad as long as they don't change it beyond recognition.

    4. And I refuse to call VT CST - that to me is sacrilege.

  10. And you did a fab job of this - complete with all 'C's - you get an 'A', Suzy!

    1. Thanks Corinne. Good to see a C move to an A. Though in NZ an A would translate to just a pass mark as in Achieved. Confuses everyone.
