Hello! If you’ve just joined me from Carrie Elk’s blog, welcome!
I missed last week’s blog hop, so I’m pleased to be back this week to take part in the challenge set by Mishka Jenkins. What is it I hear you ask? Well she challenged us to write some flash fiction – a love letter no longer than 400 words.
Not only that – it has to include the words ‘Sweet’, ‘Pumpkin’ and ‘Brush’. My contribution comes in at 286 words. I have to say I found writing this letter a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy reading it. 🙂
It was so good to speak to you yesterday. I know it’s only been a week since I saw you, but it’s too long. I love you and miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you again. I’m so glad you found my brush down the side of the sofa! It’s been really annoying me trying to work out where it got to since I got back from seeing you last weekend. I suppose I should have known it might be there after… Well, you know.
I can’t believe that I’m with such a sweet guy as you – no really, you are the best. I think about you every minute of every day. I’m not exaggerating, I do. Bella and Izzy keep teasing me about you and I go so red. They say to me things like: ‘Oh Peter, my little pumpkin pie’ and make silly faces and bat their eyelids. I know, it’s terrible. Seriously, I’ve done nothing to encourage them, honestly I haven’t.
I can just picture your sceptical face and your amused grin at my protestations of innocence. But the truth is I don’t think I can wait till next weekend to see you again. I know I’ll have to – I’ve got lectures all week so I have no choice – but being without you is sheer torment and I don’t know how I’m going to survive a whole year of being apart from you all week every week. Seeing you only at weekends seems second best somehow.
I know you can’t move to Bristol, but still… I suppose we’ll get used to this. I’m counting the hours till I see you on Saturday.
Love you always,
Thanks for reading! Now why not hop along to Sarah Hegger’s blog and read her contribution?
