OLWG #151- Green Eyes and All

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The words below are written just for practice. Practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.



It was a storm, of sorts.
Not a storm in the typical sense of the word.
There was plenty of thunder and enough lightning to illuminate the entire city.
But, it wasn’t what most would call a storm.
It was just Abigay on a tirade
Might just as easily been called a train wreck or a calamity.
Weren’t any stopping it once it began.

This all got rolling when I give Gus a ride home and he offers me a drink.
Not one to turn down a free drink; I say OK. I pull up to the curb and shut down the car.
Gus lives in a second-floor place and we get up the stair.
He opens the door and hollers to the house, “Baby, I’m home.”

He points to the kitchen table, “Have a seat, man.”
Then he tosses his coat on a TV-watching chair and heads around the counter and into the kitchen.
He pulls open the fridge door and leans down to study the contents.
“Aha,” he says and straightens back up with a couple of longnecks.
Opening one with his lighter, he hands it to me before he pops the second one and sits down.

From the back of the house, we hear a toilet flush and shortly after Alma walks in.
She and I used to be a team. Gus didn’t know this.
“TN,” she says and kisses me on the cheek, her brown eyes were sparkling and her softly freckled skin shone.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” Gus says, “you two know each other?”

“Yeah,” says Alma, “TN and I lived together for a while back before I met you: and before he met Abigay.” She leaned over and kissed Gus on the cheek too. I could see his mood changing. He was getting jealous. We drank our beers pretty much in silence while Alma talked on and on about nothing in particular. Then I left and she called my house. Don’t know what she said, but when I got home; Hurricane Abigay was already there


This week’s prompts are:

  1. how about that?
  2. when the dust clears
  3. four on the floor

  1. Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!

  2. Write something big, Write something small,
    Write something
    Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need and, have fun!
