Flash Fiction Friday -- December 23

I hope you enjoy this week’s Flash Fiction Friday.  Happy Holidays!!

Welcome to this week’s Flash Fiction Friday. A picture may be worth a thousand words but not for us. We have a picture about which we write a story of 100 words, no more and no less. I am joined by some fabulous writers today who give their take on a picture. To see the picture and the other members click this blog link: Flasher Fiction Friday

It was a fairy tale in the making, the love fairly radiated off the embracing couple. Stars shone in their eyes, eyes that they had only for each other. The rest of the world ceased to matter. The snow steadily fell around them but they were completely oblivious.
My heart swelled at just being lucky enough to witness the strong emotions of a couple so obviously in love. I felt my eyes well up and my throat clog, then I laughed. I laughed at my fanciful thoughts and placed the Christmas card on the fireplace mantle with all the others.

LOVE IT, while some FFF demonstrated this kind of romance occurs only in movies, yours comes only in Hallmark form. Nice twist.
Merry Christmas!

Poor girl. I think we've all been there. I find myself jealous of Christmas cards, the pictures that come in photo frames, and the couples in Cialis commercials all the time. ;)

LOVED IT

Yep, love that all consuming could only exist in a dream or on a Xmas card. Ok, I'm just being cynical - kinda.

Venus, you have a deliciously twisted imagination. You are a writer to with serious skills. Nicely done.
