Posers and Imaginations

*****Previous installment of Vivid Black – Deep Grief


It wasn’t the first time Henry  grabbed a difficult case. The media had spun this one out of control. Unfortunately the murders had happened on a“Zombie Gauntlet Challenge” route. There weren’t any zombies. Just posers and unleashed imaginations.


Linking up with trifecta and the 33 word weekend challenge.

This weekend’s prompt is a return to the 33-word formula. One of the earliest Trifextra challenges asked you to complete a story of which the opening five words had been given. And that’s exactly what we want you to do again this weekend.
Complete the following story in 33 words:
‘It wasn’t the first time.’ (The five words are not to be included in your 33 words)

Sunny Side Up With a Side of Toast

The question is the same most mornings when the girls arrive.

“What do you want for breakfast?”

Most mornings the answer is the same.

“Dippin’ eggs!” for one and “Toast!” for the other.

Sunshine streaming through the windows on a cold Spring morning left a path of warmth across the floor. Inviting and irresistible to a pair of well fed happy toddlers. The wishful thinking of days to come where they can pour themselves into the sunlight brought to their inventive little minds the best part of warm weather.

“We gonna have a picnic Grandma!”

Bossy, directions given by the elder and a bit of pointing an babbling from the younger. Blankies get arranged and rearranged in the midst of the sun’s patches and puzzle pieces. Then laying down to gaze up into grand view of the ceiling fan in the vault with giggles brimming out of the teapot of imagination and squeals of glee breaking the icy panes of a day closer to winter.

Only a slice of toast left from the morning breakfast fare but a feast of happiness created from the fanciful dreaming of a three year old and her little sister.

A Magic Moment is a moment you are so happy to have captured on camera.
