Love Begins

Yes! The invitation was unexpected. Lilly felt plain, boring , shy. Joseph found mysterious beauty thriving within her. Floating through the night, hands finally touching, then gently embracing. Enchantment sparkles and undying passion began.


This prompt really stretched me. It’s hard to convey a complete “story” in so few words.  This comes from Trifecta and the prompt went like this:

The first weekend prompt is as follows: write a love story in 33 words.  You are free to interpret that prompt however you wish, but your response must be 33 words exactly.

Good luck, fellow Trifectans.

    “Joseph found mysterious beauty thriving within her”…been there I think. Sometimes you just feel so inadequate (even though it’s silly!).

      I think we as women feel inadequate more often than we want to admit. Those of us who have found love wonder at what our other saw or sees in us.

    He saw something in her that she wasn’t seeing…love that part. It gives her the self confidence to move forward. That’s what I’m thinking. Love it!

      It does! I’m glad so much managed to come through in these few words. It’s really hard to find just the right word to convey multiple meanings.

    I love that part, them seeing something beautiful that no one else can see.


  7. What we see, what he sees, what happens when we connect…lovely.
