WEEK 8: But, why?

Prompted by: Laura


“But, why?”

“That’s obvious, isn’t it?”


Exhaling harshly, he reaches for his wheelchair. “I said no.”

“Pretty please?”

He transfers into it, giving his head a firm shake.

“With a cherry on top?”

“I hate cherries.”

“Aww, come on,” she giggles, “you love cherries.”

“I hate ’em.”

She giggles again. “You looove ’em.”

Readjusting his legs, he rolls his eyes. “Not this type.”

“What type?” she asks, feigning innocence.

He tugs her down onto his lap, grumbling, “You know exactly what type.”

“Tell me anyway.”

Pressing a kiss to her bare shoulder, he murmurs huskily, “The sweet type.”

“How sweet?”

“Very sweet…”

Moaning, she loops her arms around his neck as his lips travel to the base of hers.

“Irresistibly sweet…”

“So,” she manages to whisper, breathless, “is that a yes?”

He laughs, the sound a low rumble from deep inside his chest. “It’s a yes.”


“Just one dance, though,” he clarifies.


“Then I’m taking you home.”

“I like how you think, stud…”

  1. Yipes! You chose my prompt! It’s so good! Thank you thank you thank you!

    Okay new ideas –
    “I– I’m not sure” she stammered.
    He was taken aback at her boldness.
    She makes him laugh. Really laugh.

      He points to the ledge above. “How about there?”

      “I-I’m not sure,” she stammers.

      “You’re not sure that’s where you wanna watch the fireworks from?” he questions, arching a brow. “Or you’re not sure I can get my butt up there?”

      Giving him a sideway glance, she slowly smiles. “I can always piggyback you.”

      He’s taken aback by her boldness.

      “Or,” she continues, “you can just sit on my shoulders.”

      She makes him laugh. Really laugh.

      “What do you say, champ?”

      He grins up at her. “I say you’re something else.”
