The Photo Prompt
PHOTO PROMPT © Ronda Del Boccio
I could write about anything, but it’s fun to let characters from my novel They All Died Smiling come out and play. Kassidy is the protagonist, and she has a terrible ability that has only messed up her life. By the time we meet her in the book, she’s a mid-twenties war widow. We only meet Randy in her memories on the page. But here on the web, we can meet him before his honorable but tragic death in war.
You can see and order all my books on Amazon at Amazon..com/author/rondadelboccio.
The Story: Olive Juice
Genre: Mainstream story inspired by my paranormal/urban fantasy novel They ‘All Died Smiling featuring Kassidy, our hero of the book, and her late husband, Randy. He died before the action of the book. This tale occurs during their courtship.
Word count: 100
Randy and I dreamed of a train trip. With him leaving for war soon, we opted for the Branson Scenic Railway.
On board, he squeezed my hand. “Sorry this isn’t exactly what we planned, Kass.”
“Close enough for me.” I snuggled into him. A little thrill tickled my insides.
“I didn’t mean the train.”
“I know.” How could I help savoring every second as though it might be our last?
A guy on the platform mouthed to the woman in front of us.
“Did he say, ‘I love you’ or ‘olive juice’?” I whispered.
“They look the same speech-read.”
Thanks for reading nad commenting!
Cheers to your B.L.I.S.S.-FULL Life!!
