A Puzzle and a Prize! (Contest)
Saturday, February 16th, 2019

UPDATE: The winner is…Ronda Barnes!

Yes, I’m late posting! I spent the day binge-watching Outlander with my dd and her hubby who was home from the police academy. Now, we’re all caught up! Loved Ian’s ending. I actually wish the story would follow him now! Can I admit that last season was a bit long and boring? Is that sacrilege?

Anyways, so I’m late. Here’s a puzzle. It’s a picture for something I think would be lovely on a short story cover. Tell me what you think that story should be about—however brief!—and you’ll be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift card!

    Two strangers walking along the edge of the river, both needed to get away from the craziness going on in their life, their eyes connect and had an instant attraction they couldn’t ignore. The mystery and excitement was too overwhelming. They were in each other’s in a passionate kiss, they slipped into a nearby unlocked parked car and threw caution to the wind knowing they were probably never going to see each other again, but they both just needed an outlet to forget their life, even it was just for a little while.

    The young lady was walking down the road carrying her shoes, one with a broken heel. She looked out of breath.
    He could not resist stopping to help her. Finding her and her story irresistible, he kisses her and one thing leads to another. I am really bad at this.

    6.32 for me. And…….
    I’m not really sure how/why/where they are but it sure looks like she’s enjoying it. My choice is long, lost lovers that simply run into each other and discover that the spark is still there and the car is the only place with any sort of privacy. And of course, they have to make the most of it because they’re both seeing other people and only have a limited amount of time to devote to each other.

    They are at the airport. She is flying out that day. He can’t resist giving her some loving before she goes.

    Sometimes you just have to pull to the side of the road and say hi to each other. With you clothes off!
