Path To The Other Side, part II

The Rogue Speaks:

If you did not read part one, please scroll down to last Saturday's Centus. Now, the story continues:


He took her hand and placed it against the keystone at the foot of the gate. The warmth emanating from within the stone was like nothing she had ever felt. It entered her body through her palm, burning off the chill of the clear night air.

"What is this?" she asked him.

"I haven't shown you the best part yet," he replied, and he pulled the giant ring in the middle of the gate. The ancient hinges groaned and shrieked as the gate slowly opened.

He took both her hands and gently pulled her through the gate.

"Oh, my!" she cried softly.


This concludes my Saturday Centus. Jenny received this prompt from Jeff Campbell. Please read his post, as well as the other offerings on Jenny's blog.

p.s. I can see again!!!! Yea!!!

Now that you're on the other side of the surgery (Woohoo! I'm so happy for you!), tell us what's on the other side of the gate! (Please.) This one is so suspenseful and romantic. Very nice, Judie.

Very intriguing. I'm wondering just what is going to happen behind that gate, lol. Wonderful writing.

Very intriguing...I enjoyed the description of her reactions...so now that you can(thankfully) see, what did she?

Tammy said...

So glad the surgery was a success and you're up and typing already. Great story, but please tell us what she saw! You're killing me here!

Judie-I'm glad to hear your surgery went well. I got in late on your Ipso Facto post, but I thought it was brilliant. Some valuable insights there on human nature and the human condition.

Yay! You continued the story. Now I'm biting my nails waiting to see what happens!

I'm glad you can see again Judie! I didn't even know you had surgery. My dear husband is an eye guy, so I pretend to be an eye expert via marriage(not extraordinary qualifications, I know). Have a good weekend.

Jenny said...

I'm not just crabby because of the heat...
