I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback!
Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date the year before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate…
So here it is!
Previously posted on October 11th of 2016, here’s a short piece of fiction, from 3 years-ago-Me!
“I wrote you a thousand times”, he told her by the stone hearth.
The flames reflected in her eyes, matching her red mane. The warm tones of the fire colored the whole room, covering the discreet blushing of her cheeks.
“I don’t have the eye of a painter, I don’t have the hand of a sculptor… But I gave my best words to portray you in all your shades… I wrote you fierce, I wrote you tender… Flirteous… Chaste… Flamboyant… Guarded… Unreachable… and mine.”
She tilted her head back, offering her neck gracefully… The ultimate pay to the artist’s folly.
