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.” […]

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.
