The Meeting

40 Comments


Scenario 1

A camera shutter winked. Their encounter wasn’t secret anymore. He grabbed her; his passion evident. She slipped into the shadow out of his grasp.

“I can’t…”

“You said you love me.”

“I don’t anymore.”

“What? Problems at home?”

* * *

Scenario 2

The passion of her embrace left him breathless. Their last secret encounter she’d said. A shutter clicked. He looked over his shoulder. Was that a camera? A shadow crossed his face. He’d almost escaped.

Or was he paranoid?

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  2. I like both scenarios! I want to know more about both of them!

    • Thanks for liking both scenarios. What gets me all HOT and lightheaded is if anyone wants to know MORE! Now that my head is in the clouds I’d best go back and practice some more. I appreciate your input. Tess

    Quite the suspense you’ve got going there Tess 😉

    • Hi Ghia. That’s what my intent was. If interest and suspense were indeed at work, I am gratified. I need lots of practice. Maybe one day it will get easier. Thanks for coming along with some input. I appreciate it. Hope I didn’t get too long winded on my last comment on your post. Tess

  5. #2 leaves more to the imagination – great scenarios!

  6. Both senarios are negitive in different ways; meaning they have the element of a sadness. But I can do sadness!!
    Good.

    • Thanks T(?). If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. I had a third scenario too but wasn’t sure it would go over(it was quite different). I SO appreciate your kind input. No. 2 seems to be the one most chosen. Back to the drawing board for me. . . Tess

      • Thanks, Toni. I appreciate the input (especially since it’s positive—just kidding). So nice to meet you too and you are awfully sweet. I’m sure we’ll have lots to talk about yet. . .

  8. I love the intrigue of the second scenario.

    The idea reminds me slightly of Antonioni’s “Blow-Up,” about a photographer who shoots a scene of something that wasn’t meant for his eyes to see:

    • Thank you. This is so interesting. I recall this movie vaguely about a hundred years ago. The picture prompt I used here sure has been a lot more interesing than what initially met my eye. It’s invigorating to see other sides of a story, which of course, can be endless. It opens up the mind and the mind’s eye blinks and blinks again. Ahh. Another idea . . . So nice that you came back again and attached the youtube video. Now I’m all charged and won’t want to call it a night! Thanks Dienna. I’m sure we’ll talk some more (and about lots of things). I enjoy talking with you. Tess

  9. Ooh exciting! Yes, my preference would be the second one too. It brings up an atmosphere of anticipation.

    • Thanks Vanessa. I like playing with various emotions and feelings (on paper, or course). Some are difficult but I love playing. Trouble is I’m trying to scale back commenting and reading blogs so I can concentrate on writing but so far haven’t been too successful. I’m having too much fun her. Nice hearing from you again. I’m sure we’ll have other things to discuss.

  11. Hi Tess, this was really fun to get to read and choose. I have to vote for #2. It is packed, yet says so much with so few words. It brings to mind many questions–not in the “Huh? Did I miss something?” sense, but in an intriguing way–like I want to fit more pieces of the puzzle together.

    • Love hearing from you Red. It’s more fun being contrary. Being in control of someone else’s life (teehee) is a riot. I enjoy when there are arguments, misunderstandings and dark thoughts. What does that say about me? Tess
