The Journey Begins

The Rogue Speaks:

For this week's offering to make any sense, please scroll down and read my Centii from 6/ll and 6/18. This is a continuing story.



Carefully, he unfolded the old letter and began to read. “Dear John, My sorrow is so great. One day you will understand, my love, and when the time is right, you will find me again.”

He had come upon the wall quite by chance, and by chance had found the yellowed paper tucked into a seam where the mortar had fallen away.


Jenny's Saturday Centus has given us the opportunity to stretch our imagination and improve our writing skills with only 60 words this week instead of our usual 100. Sweet little Jenny decided to save an evil prompt for another Saturday. Instead, she gave us the words found in bold type in my offering. Since many of us have been writing continuing stories, she CLAIMS she thought this prompt would be a good one. We KNOW her, though, and know she can have somewhat of a mean streak when it comes to prompts.

That did not deter me, however, and I managed to seamlessly blend the prompt with my last two Centii! HA! And HA again!! Please be sure to read the other offerings. We were not born yesterday, and we KNOW how to work her system!!

Excellent Judie !

I like the fate and luck of finding the note and the promise of explanation and reuniting someday...in fact, I love it !

As for our sometimes wicked Miss Jenny...take that and good for you Judie, we are all up to any challenge she throws down !

Another well written piece from you my friend. I guess she is not ready quite yet. This idea would make for a fine movie...Peace and blessings

Very evocative. Great job!

Alas, if only I would find declarations of love in my crappy mortar! Hauntingly lovely nonetheless.

BECKY said...

So sad and lovely...at the same time. Very romantic! (PS I also love many of your music choices! I have several Play Lists on my blog and change them as my mood changes.)

Or, there is always the postal service.

Nah, stick with the crack in the wall!

So open for future development! Nice piece of work today....

I didn't have much time this week to try and continue my story with these two measly words. Maybe next week. Very good Judie, you did it again, as usual.~Ames
P.S I hope she isn't evil next week. :)

Sue said...

This one makes me want to find out the rest of the story!

Good one!

=)

I'd say you did an excellent job of carrying us farther into this mystery unfolding before our eyes each Saturday! Way cool!

Hi Judie,

It's been a long time out of the blog-o-sphere for myself.

There's quite a lot of meaning packed into those 60-odd words Judie. Your writing always opens up so many questions that leave the reader wondering. I really liked this post.

Rek said...

Loved this...sense a mystery brewing...do continue. You have a knack for continuous stories.

Barkha Dhar said...

Very emotive indeed. Love certainly has vivid colors. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed reading all three parts.
With Best,
Barkha Dhar

rusted gate
moans through the night
in this void of its wall
historys letter still lingers
lost love

Ohh... just a Cinquian echo, to this so well posed... thought from the past. _m

THE SNEE said...

I'm so glad you're running with this one. I like to be a fly on a wall.

Lynette Killam said...

what a clever soul you are, Judie, to think of a continuing story and manage to fit it into the given prompts! I love this whole premise and can't wait for more...:)

Purvi said...

Very imaginative.. well used prompt :)

Jenny said...

Mean? Moi? Surely you jest!

As if I could ever trip you up! You are the word master, girl! And I know it for sure!
