Love by any other name........#4
I was at Francine Howarth's fun blog and came across her flash fiction piece and I really had a great time with it so it was a sure thing that I would feature it here. Thanks Francince for being such a sport.

But before I let you in on Francine's story, I want to give you a snapshot of my life right this minute. I do that by way of apology for neglecting my blog visits. I imagine I'll only be sane when all this is over, so please friends, hang in there with me.


The Door Swung Shut
by Francine Howarth @ Romancing The Blog  

The door swung open, as though beckoning her to greet the morn. Raw scent of man replaced by salty air drifted through her cliff-top cottage. He was gone, but he’d be back. They always came back if she wanted them to.
   How strange, though, that the sound of the sea crashing on the cliffs seemed closer than usual, almost surreal, as though swirling beneath her. True enough, pilot officer Brett Master’s had made the ground move all right, and maybe this time she might hang around longer than just for the weekend.
   She smiled, the local lovesick barmaid leapt to mind, whom, according to village gossip a bit of a witch on the side. Funny really, the silly girl had cast an evil eye in their direction and mouthed some whispered curse as they’d made to leave. They’d naturally laughed and left the pub arms about each other.
   She stretched cat-like, languidly slid from the bed and walked naked toward the door.
   The lawn, the road . . . What?
   The ground had moved: moved for real.
   She stood there, nothing beneath but swirling water, and Brett gone for good, no doubt about it.
   The cottage was teetering on the edge of the cliff, and suddenly the door swung shut behind her.

About the Author

Most know me as the author to Fabulosity Reads and in actual fact, that is the previous name of this blog. I have since then moved my books to a Wordpress self-hosted blog so that I can have a place to show a different side of me which I am equally passionate about and that is marketing and personal development. I hope you will love being here, watching me grow as I share and learn. My highest hope is that we will grown and learn together in all disciplines affecting our lives. I'd LUUURRRVE to hear from you, so don't be shy...


  1. That is a good story beginning

  2. Hi Wendy,

    It's strange to see one's work featured elsewhere, but thanks for seeing the irony of it. It does after all represent a case of rough justice in stealing someone else' fancied piece! ;)



I love hearing from you....
