and...it's what's not said here that speaks thousands of words.good work
Thanks, Lance - When is the book release?
This is very good.
I vote you the winner, if we were voting, that is. Sigh. :( This is really good. You've painted a whole story here in 33 words. Excellent. You should win. :)
Thanks Scriptor! Looking forward to reading your piece.
I'm curious now as to what brought these two to that point.Great entry!
I think they're just tired of each other...
Oh, those thousand-year marriages! THE SILENCE IS DEAFENING! [In my hyperbolic way, reiterating Lance's comment] Nice piece, Kelly.
Ah, that silent tension. Definitely feeling the vibes haha :D
This is great...opening the newspaper creates a gale... Nice work :)
My husband actually does that. Gale force winds when he turns a page in the newspaper.
What a profound piece-love the way it speaks volumes on a lo..ng marriage;-)
For some reason I pictured them as young, as if their marriage got stale way to quick. But how well you captured that yawning abyss of boredom that can develop!
I'm picturing them older--at least the kids are all out of the house. This was extracted from a longer story I'm working on. Thanks for reading!
I think I was in a marriage like this. Way too real. Nice job!
"You can't really hate someone after you just met them. To real loathe a person you have to have been married to them for years!" Good piece!
your'e so good. I don't think I'd even attempt this challenge...too hard!
