And the words:

“I took a deep breath, put my hand on the doorknob and unlocked the door.” – Christiana Miller – Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead

And here are the submissions for this week:

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Violet from Thru Violet’s Lentz

PCGuyIV from MY Author-itis

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

 

And here’s my submission for the week:

I took a deep breath and unlocked the door,

Staring bright eyed at the lighthouse’s light as the seagulls did caw.

I started up the steps two at a time,

I made haste, I did not whine.

Reaching the top I paused to draw a breath,

The sounds from above were making me fret.

Taking the last steps two at a time,

I made the top and stopped mid rhyme.

Before shocked eyes I did see,

Something which astounded me.

A polar bear and a hippo were drinking wine,

While swaying from side to side as they repeated the time.

And the words:

‘ “Take me with you,” She whispers at the window.’ – Bellweather Rhapsody – Kate Racculia

And here are the submissions for this week:

Violet from Thru Violet’s Lentz

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

And here’s my submission for the week:

“Take me with you,” She whispers at the window, her voice forlorn.

At first she had been hopeful, he had paused this time and she had met his eyes without blinking.  His lips had pursed and then, without a word, he had turned and left … like had had every time before.

She knew what he was thinking, she was too young, too inexperienced, too trusting but with a quick glance over her shoulder, Tiffany pulled the door open and rushed into the darkness.

She wouldn’t be left behind this time; tonight she too would fly to the galaxies beyond.
