Empathy

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/21/your-daily-word-prompt-empathy-may-21-2019/ Nigel had great empathy for the victims of crimes because he found it easy to put himself in their shoes.  The heartsick pain, the torture of not knowing, the ache of loss, the emptiness, the loose ends in some cases that were never tied up leaving an open wound that could not quite heal. […]

Narrative

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/your-daily-word-prompt-narrative-may-19-2019/ Although June’s narrative was short, Nigel envisioned the entire scene.  June alone in her gallery probably painting, a man storms in yelling, pulls out a knife and advances but before he can harm her he attacks her art which in Nigel’s mind was the lesser of two evils and he was thankful that June […]

Fortitude

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/16/your-daily-word-prompt-fortitude-may-16-2019/ As a cop, it had been drilled into him and every other cop “never make promises”.  The outcome was laden with invariables from human nature to stupidity and they’d let down the person they’d made the promise to as well as themselves.  Still, he couldn’t help promising June they’d find her brother and his […]

Irony

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/15/your-daily-word-prompt-irony-may-15-2019/ The irony of finding Roland’s “good luck hat” wasn’t lost on June.  It started out as a joke but he kept it going anyway. Jackson had given it to him a long time ago presumably to keep him safe and perhaps it would if it led them to their location, kept the searchers on […]

Disposition

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/09/your-daily-word-prompt-disposition-may-9-2019/ As they continued searching, Nigel considered their situation.  It was imperative he keep a close eye on June to protect her and he was amazed at how much her safety mattered, above and beyond the usual considerations. June had a sunny disposition but underneath he noted a strong character and stronger constitution.  She’d need […]

Force

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/04/your-daily-word-prompt-force-may-4-2019/ June was delighted and optimistic at what she hoped was a turning point.  Nigel wasn’t nearly as confident.  He didn’t believe in coincidence and it would certainly be a stroke of luck if he was one of the men involved.  Obtaining more information on the man’s identity might indicate whether he was involved and […]
