Pre-anniversary

Have you ever imagined The One? Their fingernails. Their lopsided smile after cracking and inside joke. Their crooked toes. Their smell right after a steamy shower, and at the end of a long day.

NaJoWriMo 10/04/2016: Family influences

NaJoWriMo 12/01/2016: Day dream

Today’s prompt is asking me to day dream. That’s easy. How would I like to spend my day, what would I like to happen… Well, I would have liked not to have the neighbour knocking on the door, complaining about a leak. I would have liked not to have my carpets rolled up, the floorboards… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 12/01/2016: Day dream
