3 WW and A New Contest

Welcome to another installment from Bone.

Welcome to Three Word Wednesday. Each week, I will post three (or more) random words. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write something using all of those words. It can be a few lines, a story, a poem, anything. I'll also attempt to write something using the same three words.

Leave a comment if you participate. Many fun and interesting people might visit your blog.

This week's words are:

Fiona slowly pulled out of Gary's embrace. No matter how wonderful his kiss…and, she had to admit, it was like nothing she'd experienced…it didn't solve the shadow that hung over them.

"I ought to go," she said, walking over to the table and picking up her coffee cup. She made a face as she tasted the lukewarm liquid. She poured it into the sink and rinsed the mug with water. She rinsed it, knowing she was keeping herself busy on purpose. If she didn't, she was afraid she would return to Gary's arms.

Gary touched her hand. "How can you go…now? Just when…"

She turned to look at him. Anguish showed through his eyes and she could hear the pain and desire in his voice.

The raindrops running down the window mimicked the tears running down her cheeks unchecked.

"It doesn't change anything," she said, regret tingeing her voice. "There is still Claudia. Until that is solved…"

"I've told you…she means nothing to me. This engagement is… well, it's not an engagement. It's all in her mind."

Fiona reached up and caressed Gary's cheek, feeling the slight stubble beneath her hand. "I think I believe you… but you have to clear things with her. Until then, it will just be one endless problem after the other."

The thunder crashed outside again, but this time the storm in her heart was stronger. She closed her eyes and turned away from him. Her heart felt pulled in two. But, this was the right thing to do. Until Claudia was convinced that Gary didn't love her… that they weren't engaged… there was no future for her with the man she loved more than life itself.

I found The Blogroll Game through Marianne. What a wonderful way to waste time. No, not waste time. What a great way to get to know new and interesting people.

If you are familiar with Michelle, you are already familiar with the basic premise of this game. One thing that distinguishes The Blogroll Game, though, is that for The Blogroll Game… PRIZES are offered. Now, we ALL know how I feel about prizes. And, to make it even better… the prizes are… (are you ready for this??)… BOOKS.

What could be better? You will get to meet some really neat people AND you might have the chance to win some books. The more you play, the better your chances. There will be prizes for the people who visit the most, but there will also be random drawings… so even playing the game once gets you in the running for goodies.
I'm off to play now… come and join us.


As I have been through a similar situation, I relate with this. It has to be lose ended as life does not have any answer at that moment of time.

Thanks for this post.

Interesting vignette - I love the imagery relating rain and tears.

When you finish Fiona's story, I have got to buy it, just to see how you tie it all together. I am really enjoying the bits and pieces!

A well-told story about a very relatable situation, Judy.

I stuck out my tongue at the lukewarm coffee, and also liked the raindrops/tears line.

Why do guys expect the gals to accept the other woman?

So will Gary really get rid of her? Will Fiona get rid of Gary?

What a great story. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Maybe she would just be better of without Gary.

I like this idea. I think I'm going to go check it out.
