Weekly Photo Challenge: Door

Location: Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

– Emily Dickinson

Don’t Drink and Drive

For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 3 July 2015

Note: I can’t believe this is my 72nd submission to Friday Fictioneers. I’m taking a break from blogging. I have all these stuff to do and then I go for the much needed vacation. I hope to be back in September.

I used to be the king of the road, but now I’m only a shell of my former self.

I remember the good old days with Andy driving the girls around. I took them wherever they wanted. Distance was no object.

One night Andy had too much to drink. While driving home, he hit a utility pole and died on impact. I didn’t fare well either with my front end all smashed up.

Whenever kids stop by, I want to tell them, “Don’t drink and drive.” But I know they won’t listen. They have the aura of invincibility in them.

I love sunset. There’s something about it that engages the mind and spirit. It is like a woman who has come of age. It never fails to inspire as much as for what it shows as much as for what it hides.

“This is what I hate about going on a tour,” Jeff told Ellen as the airport shuttle was approaching. “As we get to know each other, it ends and we go our separate ways.”

For two weeks, they traveled around France. They found they had a lot in common and shared the same values.

“I’ve fallen in love with you,” he continued.

“Don’t be silly, Jeff. We’re just two people caught in the moment. Trust me, when you fly home tonight, you’ll forget me.”

Jeff proved Ellen wrong. Many years later, they came back to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.
