The Dark Netizen has tagged me in a challenge created by Eclectic Contrarian. I would tell a story based on the photo that the tagger gives me.
The doorbell rang.
Sophia looked out the front window and saw Dwayne standing there with a mixed bouquet behind his back. She opened the door, “Hi Dwayne! What’s up?”
Behind his cool demeanor, Dwayne was actually nervous to see Sophia.
Over the past few months, he would see her design costumes for the Syfy network as he dropped off audio equipment on the horror sets she worked at. He was instantly enamored by her spunky personality as she instructed her team of stylists on how to create a convincing bloody face that was aggressively scratched by a werewolf.
“Well Sophia, these are for you, and I was wondering if you’d like go check out this Steampunk Escape Room in town…with me of course.” Dwayne silently wondered where his swagger was now as he waited for her response. His extended arms trembled underneath the bouquet.
Sophia graciously took the bouquet. This man knew her tastes. So thoughtful! Candied skulls in the center of the flowers. Who would have thought? “An escape room sounds awesome! I love to go with you!”
She decided to invite him inside. “Would you to come in for a glass of Moloko Plus? I just created this drink from “A Clockwork Orange” after finding a recipe that involves some whole milk, orange vanilla vodka, Irish cream, and orange extract.”
Dwayne marveled to himself, “Did I just find my dream girl?” He grinned and winked, “Sure, I’d like to be the guinea pig to try this out with you!”
Kristian from Tales from the Mind of Kristian also tagged me for the picture below.
It was the best birthday present ever!
Khloe stared at her shiny new driver license that arrived in the mail. A bright face smiled back at her. “You did it, girl!” After failing the test to obtain her license twice, she finally passed. Filled with glee, she spun around and lept in the air. “3rd time is the charm, isn’t it?”
Her instructor always told her to slow down as he sat in the passenger seat fearing for his life. Khloe always imagined that she would one day be a professional NASCAR driver. Now, she’s one step closer to that dream! She revved up daddy’s jeep as he took a nap, and decided to take it for a little ride.
She drove out to the beach 15 minutes away, and she was excited to see an empty coast line. “Great! Free open space!” She rolled down the window feeling the fresh breeze. She looked in her side mirror, and a familiar car pulls up next to her.
“HEY KHLOE! Follow me!” It was her friend Jeannette who recently got her license as well. Khloe hit on the breaks and took a sharp a hard U-turn.
“It’s the best day of my life!”
Suddenly, menacing dark clouds roll in. A thunderstorm is forming off in the distance.
