Lillie McFerrin Writes
This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:

Charmed



This one is about as far away from the world of Dieselpunk as you can get. But I still found a way to sneak the word Dieselpunk into my blog again...





Charmed

She was so young, so beautiful, and he was so much older, but it didn't seem to matter - at least she never mentioned the difference in age. He enjoyed her company immensely, refreshing his soul with a youthful energy that had faded away after his wife died. Still, he knew it wouldn't last forever as he could barely keep pace with her free-spirited ways, that even now he needed a break.

"You go play with the other children for a while," he said smiling. "You've worn Grandpa out!"

    1. I was having a hard time with this one. I first thought about doing something along a fantasy theme, but nothing seemed to work. Then I started to think along the line of a romantic encounter, and somehow it lead me here...

      Thanks for the commenting!

    1. Good morning, Bethanne!

      See what hanging around with you romance writers has done to me? Instead of writing about an evil witch casting a spell on an innocent and unsuspecting prince and/or princess, I get all mushy and sweet...

      What will the neighbors think?
