For What Pegman Saw Writing Prompt – Hiking

Image result


There was many people who hiking wasn’t for. And Kyle was one of them. So what on earth was he doing hiking in Ute Petroglyph Trail in Colorado? Good question, he thought. But he knew why. He was trying to impress Candice. She was the blond bombshell he had been trying to impress for years. Unsuccessfully. He hoped she’d be impressed by his adventurous spirit. So he torturously made step after step.

He finished the mountain miles behind her and watched as she kissed that apparent ‘friend’ of hers Frank. He sat down on the ground trying to regain his breath and pride. He had thought the hardest part of the day would be the trek. But the ache in his heart said differently.

He heard a crash beside him. He looked and seen a beautiful woman who introduced herself as Jenny. It was the start of their trek together.

  1. Hey, welcome to Pegman. This story is sweet. Love is often found when we least expect it. The last line is great. Love is a trek. Hopefully neither of them will leave each other behind as they trek onwards and upwards.

    Couple of words wrong-footed me on the way through your story – I hope you don’t mind me mentioning this? The was at the beginning (second word) and seen in the last paragraph (tenth word).

    Hope to read more of your stories on Pegman, and maybe one of those many books on your blog. You sure seem to have written a lot. I also liked the way you handled that inappropriate comment in your About. Well done!

    Excellent story-telling! The voice is great.

  3. Welcome to Pegman! I’ve done this type of thing a couple of times ~ pretended to enjoy something just to make an impression. It rarely turned out for the best.

    Sounds as if Candace didn’t really even know this fellow existed, but following her has led to something better. Nicely written!

    I like the parallel between finishing the hiking trail, and finishing his fruitless pursuit of Candice. It sounds as though Jenny will suit him very well. Nice story, Lisa
