Friday Fictioneers: Summer Romance




Summer Romance


I sat by the window. My mind intent on writing a book based on that brief relationship I had three summers ago with the woman who stole my heart. My sense of recall comes through my senses. Smelling the heavy scent of her perfume in my nostrils, the sight of her deep green eyes, the touch of her hand which was both soft and gentle and the soft sound of her voice to my earlobes after we made love in my bedsit flat.



She gave me a picture as a parting gift reminding me to fly and take life on.

    Very romantic indeed, and a good way to find inspiration for writing πŸ™‚

  3. Aah, the sweet smell of romance.

  4. Dear Lisa,

    Sweet and romantic.



  5. James McEwan says:

    ‘the woman who stole my heart’ I always find that a puzzle, if you show a woman your heart she helps herself for ever. Best to keep a spare. Just kidding. I enjoyed your story very much.

  6. gahlearner says:

    Very sweet, and a perfect parting gift. So much better than to part in anger.

  7. The focus of senses is what makes this story alive for me

  8. Excellent use of the prompt. You captured four of the five sense. How sweet was her kiss? That would have nailed the fifth one.

  9. Wistful and romantic. A romantic story.

  10. Jan Morrill says:

    So beautiful, Lisa, and it especially touched me because last night I dreamed of a brief love of my own, and the gift he gave me before he died. Your use of the senses made your story even more real.

    I wonder whether the main character is reading too much significance into the love affair. Unless the woman died – and I don’t think that’s really implied – surely the two of them could have made things work if they’d wanted to?

      I think she probably is reading too much into it. She is kind of lonely & looking for love, the ultimate love of her life where the other woman just seen it as a summer romance though she liked her a person. But the idea of her having died is an interesting one too & would make for an interesting story too. Thanks so much for reading. πŸ™‚

    She must have stolen his heart indeed if he’s still thinking of her three years later!

  13. Such a sweet story – really enjoyed reading it.
