Sweetless At Midnight

Light Motiffs II – Three Things Challenge PL49 

 Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride.  Today’s prompt: midnight, sweatshirt, application.

The Haunted Wordsmith Story Starter Challenge & Elemental Writing Challenge

Story Starter Prompt:  “It was our darkest hour.”

Elemental Writing Challenge: For this challenge, we will explore one of the four elements: air, earth, water, fire.  This week’s focus is AIR.

Today’s word and image:


It was our darkest hour of our marriage

for five years we had been saving and planning

our very special midnight rendezvous of sweet lovin’

to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary

~ * ~

The resort we chose was well known for all its

tropical delights including everyday warm sunshine

but when we arrived there and settled in…

suddenly, we were blasted with the

frigid air of an unexpected freak Winter storm

killing all the anticipation we had built up over the five years

and alas, we had to enact the application of

sweatshirts and sweatpants because

this tropical resort has no heaters installed in the rooms

which left us completely sweetless at midnight!
