Omit

Omit https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/23/your-daily-word-prompt-omit-april-23-2019/ Nigel went over every tidbit of information he had acquired regarding both men.  He wasn’t about to omit a single detail lest something lend assistance or a hint about what was happening. His current and only logical theory was that Jackson was the target whether it was money a vendetta a lark a […]

Association

Initiative

Initiative https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/21/your-daily-word-prompt-Initiative-april-21-2019/ Although it was a short period of time to have spent together, June enjoyed Nigel’s company, more so as time passed.  He’d taken the initiative in asking questions, personal questions to learn more about her and he was on target regarding his assessment of her character.  He was strong determined and confident in […]

Examine

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/17/your-daily-word-prompt-examine-april-17-2019/ Several hours later, having hiked through dense mountainous terrain, the two sleuths stopped, taking a quick break before continuing on.  They’d examined every inch of the pathway since finding the boot print hoping to find another clue.  So far, nothing.  It irked Nigel.  Although he wasn’t given to second guessing himself, he wondered if […]

Subsidiary

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/16/your-daily-word-prompt-subsidiary-april-16-2019/ June smiled.  “I did some research on you once I knew who was being called in.  You actually own the company, you aren’t a subsidiary.” Nigel nodded, “That’s true.” “Pretty risky starting a new company…” “Not really.  I know what I’m doing, and I only hire the most qualified applicants.  I’d been involved in […]

Participate https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/15/your-daily-word-prompt-participate-april-15-2019/ As they walked, searching intently for other tell tail signs June asked, “Are all your men former cops?  Or are they dedicated searchers?” “A little from column a and b.  I hand picked each man because I needed to make sure they’d meld together well, one’s strengths would compensate for any weakness in […]

Characteristic

Characteristic https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/13/your-daily-word-prompt-characteristic-april-13-2019/ It wasn’t characteristic for Nigel to share bits of his home life June surmised given the shake that followed, and she wondered if it were her in particular, or his way in general.  His next words surprised her.  “I’m comfortable around you, June.  Not something I’m given to or admitting for that matter.” […]

Participate

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/12/your-daily-word-prompt-participate-april-12-2019/ Participate If asked, June would have immediately offered to participate in the search for Roland and Jackson, not only because she knew the men and their habits well but because she was a seasoned hiker and it was possible Nigel might have agreed, but it was doubtful; therefore, she’d done the next best thing, […]

Absolute

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/02/your-daily-word-prompt-absolute-april-2-2019/ Absolute June was a determined woman.  Her commitment absolute.  Nigel was impressed with her character.  She was beautiful, her auburn hair and green eyes striking, and she obviously worked out (hiking being one of her outlets) and it seemed they had much in common.  He hadn’t allowed himself to become involved or even attracted […]

Aghast

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/06/your-daily-word-prompt-aghast-april-6-2019/ Both were feeling disappointed they’d found no other signs from the two missing men.  They’d covered miles painstakingly checking inch by inch with little to show for their efforts. Finally, when it became too dark to continue, they once against set up camp “Take your flashlight and be watchful, June.” When June returned to […]

Talisman

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/28/your-daily-word-prompt-talisman-march-28-2019/ Talisman Nigel contacted his men updating orders and sharing information.  He listened intently watching as June lit a small fire, enough to keep them warm but hopefully not enough to alert others to their presence.  Luckily there were plenty of aromatic smells in the area to disconcert. They ate in companionable silence as while […]

Royal

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/21/your-daily-word-prompt-royal-march-21-2019/ Looking for feedback from those following June and Nigel. Are you finding the story engaging, interesting or other? I’m asking because I’m not sure whether to continue with their saga. Let me know what you think. Royal flush. Nigel grinned. They’d settled into a late night card game by firelight and he found June […]

Hither

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/20/your-daily-word-prompt-hither-march-20-2019/ So, Nigel concluded, one or both were leaving clues, strategically at that, nothing hither and thither about this.  They indicated direction and perhaps more importantly, offered more important incite into what was happening.  Nigel’s mind was working overtime.  Book, marginal additions, camera.  “Let’s stop, take a breather.  I have an idea.” “Ok.”  Intrigued, June […]

Besmirch

Your Daily Word Prompt – Besmirch – March 19, 2019 Whatever Jackson was embroiled in, it seemed he was in over his head.  She doubted he’d shared his concerns with Roland probably in a misguided attempt to protect Roland’s reputation, not besmirch it … whatever IT was. Since she couldn’t picture him knowingly becoming involved in […]

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/18/your-daily-word-prompt-fidelity-march-18-2019/ June’s fidelity and allegiance to her family was admirable. He knew about fidelity. He’d lived it both on and off the force and it was a commendable quality in his books. “Two idea came to mind early on.  Either Jackson was playing a prank that got out of hand, or someone has enemies.  Since […]

Armour

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/17/your-daily-word-prompt-armor-march-17-2019/ Nigel was a little surprised at June’s openness and candour. All the reports he’d read indicated she had strong barriers and armour, (which he’d been privy to during their first encounter) no doubt a self defence mechanism. She’d was a well known artist in the art world, often in the spotlight and had drawn […]

Rumple

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/15/your-daily-word-prompt-rumple-march-15-2019/ As he scanned the notebook, June surreptitiously peered across the space dividing them.  The rumpled look suited him.  Not that Nigel wouldn’t look good no matter what he wore, the rumple simply gave him a younger more approachable look, unlike the stern no nonsense of their first meeting.  He looked classy in shiny boots, […]

The Morning after the night before.

June was up and awake but not before Nigel who already had coffee on the go.  Between the luscious smelling aroma of fresh perking coffee, the added aroma of breakfast had her peeking out at him as all thoughts of sleep fled.  Rising from her sleeping bag, she smiled, “Good morning.  Whatever your cooking smells […]

Knight

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/13/your-daily-word-prompt-knight-march-13-2019/ The smirk on Nigel’s face was equally amusing and annoying. She wasn’t in need of a knight to come to her rescue, she’d been taught by the best, knew her way around and was more than likely as capable at traversing the unknown as Nigel was.  It was obvious he thought differently.  If he […]
