This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The words below are written just for practice. Practice makes perfect.
No one ever called Cally a petite girl.
She was big; not big boned – big,
Broad muscled shoulders,
Her arms were strong. Her legs were stronger.
She wore a thick plait of blonde hair down her back that touched just below her waist.
When her folks passed, Cally took over the ranch
She worked too hard.
She smoked too many cigarettes.
She drank too much.
She cared about seemingly everything.
She loved too much.
Cally and I had two children together before she joined her parents.
The state got the ranch
I got Les and Carol.
And I got that picture of Cally and me
It was taken at twilight one evening; we were at the overlook, smiling and standing by the truck.
One of those tree shaped air fresheners was hanging from the rear view.
For the life of me I can’t remember who snapped the shot.
