I’m catching up! I certainly wasn’t expecting to be writing this at 9:23 pm today, but I’m here and I am. Today (well, yesterday) was ‘J’ day in the A to Z Challenge and today’s inspiration is jewellery.
Who doesn’t love jewellery. And even more so, who doesn’t love Tiffany’s (this first photo is actually mine! A photo of their store on Fifth Avenue in New York).
So tonight I thought I’d do a 200 word flash fiction inspired by jewellery.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think…
The morning sun slipped underneath the half lowered blinds, spotlighting the mess of clothes strewn across the floor. The empty bottle of champagne stood on the side table, flanked by the beautiful crystal flutes, still partly full. As she roused and stretched, she rubbed the back of her hand against her face. And scratched the hell out of her cheek.
Then she remembered.
“Will you marry me?”
“Fuck. Yes! Of course yes!”
Holding her left hand out in front of her and wiggling her fingers she admired the beautiful ring. Although they’d never discussed rings, he’d listened well over the years and had, without any help, picked the exact ring she would have picked for herself. A beautiful, brilliant round diamond flanked on each side by a blood red rubies in a simple platinum setting. It was gorgeous.
“Good morning, Mrs Martin.”
She giggled. “I’m not Mrs Martin yet. Still Ms Taylor here.”
“Mmmm,” he mumbled, pressing his lips to the back of her neck. “We have to fix that. And soon. When should we get married?”
“Lots to plan,” she murmured, rubbing herself back on his morning erection.
“Hmmmm, yes,” he agreed, pushing back. “Plan later?”
“Yes. Much later.”
And we’re done… much later than I intended! See you tomorrow for ‘K’.
