FFfAW – The Room

Amanda carefully walked up the steps of the old house and entered into a mysterious room. The room appeared to be connected to many other rooms and before long, she found herself virtually lost. She walked in circles trying to find her way back to the steps where she came from but only became more lost and more confused.

Finally, Amanda came to a complete stop and decided to try something different. She closed her eyes and chanted:

“Please help me get out of this room.” She began spinning in circles.

When she opened her eyes, she found herself at the top of the stairs that brought her to this puzzling room. She took a deep breath, ran down the stairs and never looked back.

FFfAW – The Ring

Jason clutched the box in his hands and gently put it in his pocket. This ring was a treasure and he had searched high and low for just the right diamond. Tonight, he would ask Connie to marry him. How could she possibly say no once she saw this magnificent ring. But, he was still a bit worried that she would turn him down. After all, she was a beautiful woman and he saw how the other men looked at her. What if she said no?

That night, he got on one knee and opened the black box to display the beautiful pink diamond. Connie gasped when she saw it. It was the most amazing ring she had ever seen.

She allowed him to place the ring on her finger as she said, “Yes.”

Later that evening, she looked him in the eye and said, “This better be a real diamond!”

Jason felt a knot in his stomach and the bile rise in his throat and decided to change his mind.

FFfAW Memories

I love going to our cabin in the woods in the fall when the leaves are magnificent colors.

Today, as I drive to our special place I remember all the memories we made together.

I remember fishing in the stream, having bonfires on chilly evenings and cooking hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire.

I remember frying fish at night and biscuits and gravy in the mornings.

I remember wading through the stream while wet sand squished between my toes and how I laughed because you squealed when a fish touched your ankle.

Those are the days I love to remember.

FFfAW – Special Date

On his way to his girlfriend's house, a car ran the red light and plowed right into Darren's door, injuring him badly. He and his girlfriend's date was immediately cancelled.

Life flight air lifted him to the emergency room to the closest hospital, LifeCare. Darren was immediately sent into surgery to repair his broken limbs and to stop the massive internal bleeding.

Darren was fortunate to live through this bad wreck. It easily could have been so much worse.

Three months later, Darren and Colesta went to a nice dinner and an exciting movie, happily finishing their fateful date.

At family dinners, wild tales start as soon as we’ve said Grace and the food is being passed around.  “Remember that fifty-two pound turkey Daddy brought home to fatten for Thanksgiving on year!”

Someone else breaks in, “That old turkey was the meanest thing that ever walked!  We couldn’t even walk out in the yard without him flying over the fence and flogging us.  Mother was looking forward to him teaching those terrible Downs kids a lesson…

FFfAW – The Timepiece

This magnificent timepiece was found lying in the water next to the riverbed. I could only imagine the history behind it.

As soon as I took it out of the river and put it in my pocket, it started making these eerie sounds.

Suddenly, I was transported back to a gold mining town in California during 1849. I watched as a man plunked down a small bag of gold to the clerk in the jewelry store where he bought a pocket watch and requested engraving.

I watched him tuck the watch into his pocket and walk away smiling.

I desperately needed to know what words he had engraved on that beautiful watch.

Then I realized the watch was in my pocket. I pulled it out and read,

Annie said Yes!

August 4, 1849

Again, I was transported in time and found myself back into the time I had started. I immediately went to my computer and began writing my novel.
