The Rogue Speaks:

If a June night could talk, it would tell you the story of a young woman in a long, blue gingham nightgown, sleeveless, with a delicate trim of white eyelet at the neck.  It would tell you of a young man so hopelessly in love that it made his teeth ache, and of how that love began.

But nights can’t talk.  There is only the sound of the crickets, or of two owls calling softly to each other in the twilight.  Perhaps there is the sound of the water lapping the shoreline of the lake, and the sound of our sighs in the dark, in June.
This is my offering for Jenny's Saturday Centus.  The prompt is in bold type, and Jenny has given us 100 words plus the prompt with which to create a vignette, a flash fiction.  If you are not yet a Centusian, I hope you will join us!!

Very June like, I found myself reading through it twice, just because I too wanted my teeth to ache, (no not really, who would dream of wishing for that!) Amazing opening, at first I thought was your lead into. Such a dreamy June it is! I got mine in late, but it's in!

Judie said...

Glad you got one in. I will check it out now. I was planning on fussing with you for not writing one.


Jenny said...

You have this way about you, Judie.

You make me hold my breath until I'm done reading...

And then I release it slowly...

While I hold your words in my heart.

This was lovely.

And so are you!

Keep your chin up girl. The sun has to come out sometime!

Beautifully written. I love the romantic innocence of it.
