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 […]

Plenty

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/04/05/your-daily-word-prompt-plenty-april-5-2019/ “What about you, any hobbies or other interests?” “Plenty!” “Such as?” “People watching.  I watch people.  Everywhere I go, whatever else I’m doing, I watch people.  People fascinate me.” “I spend a lot of time in the park and I watch the same people come and go, try to ascertain what their lives entail […]

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 […]

Double meaning?

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/your-daily-word-prompt-equivoque-february-7-2019/ June tried valiantly to overcome the excitement coursing through her veins. Roland’s notebook was valuable to him, always had been. He’d never hiked without one, recording memories of what he’d seen, where he’d been, moments of value. Only then would he take out his camera and begin snapping pictures which sometimes correlated with his […]

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/02/26/your-daily-word-prompt-Fascinate-february-26-2019/ I’ve always loved learning, experiencing different ways to make that happen. I could have been a professional student, truth be told. When I was a kid, I’d save every penny to buy comic books. You guessed it, Spike Lee featured hugely. I had every comic book printed for years. I was totally fascinated with […]
