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.
“You said you love me.”
“I don’t anymore.”
“What? Problems at home?”
* * *
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?

Liked the intrigue of the second scenario!
April 14, 2012 at 7:19 pm
By golly, the second scenario is getting all the likes. Thank YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate any input especially if I’m going in the right direction…or not. There’s only one way to find out and that’s by getting comments. Tess
April 14, 2012 at 2:21 pm
I like both scenarios! I want to know more about both of them!
April 14, 2012 at 7:10 pm
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
April 14, 2012 at 2:29 pm
These are both good but he second is really powerful, brilliant honey!
April 14, 2012 at 7:07 pm
You are a brick! Thanks so much for your positive comment. It seems #2 scenario is the more popular one. I appreciate your input. Tess
April 14, 2012 at 2:36 pm
Quite the suspense you’ve got going there Tess 😉
April 14, 2012 at 7:05 pm
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
April 14, 2012 at 2:51 pm
#2 leaves more to the imagination – great scenarios!
April 14, 2012 at 6:59 pm
Thans so much! After the first one, I wondered how it might be if there was another scenario. I actually had three but was sure about it even though I liked it. It was great fun in the end. Tess
April 14, 2012 at 7:42 pm
You’re a very good writer…I’d be interested in reading the 3rd scenario!
April 14, 2012 at 4:29 pm
Both senarios are negitive in different ways; meaning they have the element of a sadness. But I can do sadness!!
April 14, 2012 at 6:15 pm
Thank YOU for contributing a comment. I’m glad you got it.
April 14, 2012 at 7:09 pm
Scenerio two leaves me hanging on my seat more.
April 14, 2012 at 7:15 pm
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
April 14, 2012 at 7:23 pm
You keep at it Tess. You definietly have something good, even from just this scenerio I’m hooked.
My name is Toni, Tess, it’s funny we get to know one another in so many ways, except names. So, it’s really noce to meet you Tess, you are a delight in my life already~
April 14, 2012 at 9:08 pm
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. . .
April 14, 2012 at 10:16 pm
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:
April 14, 2012 at 10:31 pm
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
April 15, 2012 at 4:16 am
Ooh exciting! Yes, my preference would be the second one too. It brings up an atmosphere of anticipation.
April 15, 2012 at 10:17 am
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.
April 15, 2012 at 12:53 pm
Where did you get the cool photo?
April 15, 2012 at 4:34 pm
Hi, Robin. The cool photo came from a friend. Cool, isn’t it? Tess
April 15, 2012 at 7:18 pm
It is cool!
April 15, 2012 at 7:25 pm
Thanks so much! Scenario #2 seems to be the ‘favourite’. I appreciate your comment. Who can’t use good input? Hope we can talk again.
April 15, 2012 at 7:18 pm
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.
April 15, 2012 at 7:28 pm
Wonderful! Thanks for your input. I like to hear yay or nay and certainly not just NICE talk? Hopefully there will be more platforms for communicating. I like talking with you. Tess
April 15, 2012 at 11:55 pm
NICE! I liked both scenarios.
April 16, 2012 at 7:34 pm
Thank you. The second one seems to be the more popular one but then some people changed their minds afterwards. I appreciate your taking the time to comment. Tess
April 16, 2012 at 1:12 pm
How intiguing! Like the second one too!
April 16, 2012 at 6:01 pm
Thanks so much! Yes, the second one seems to be the one most chosen. I appreciate comments from all avenues of blogging.
April 16, 2012 at 7:08 pm
I guess I’m contrary. I liked the first one.
April 16, 2012 at 7:15 pm
Thanks, Jenny. It makes no difference. I’m happy the two scenarios got the responses they did. I like to see if my attempt(s) are working. Have a lovely evening. Tess
April 17, 2012 at 12:07 am
That is great.
Makes one think outside the box.
Which is good.
My box is overflowing at the moment!
April 17, 2012 at 10:54 am
You are a sweetie. Thanks for liking my little scenarios. It’s nice to know if they’re good or not. You’ve put a spring in my step today. Tess
April 17, 2012 at 12:59 am
You are amazing — your words help paint a HOT picture, love it lady!
April 17, 2012 at 10:46 am
Thank you. You are very kind to send such a positive comment. I feel 25 years younger!
Keep up the good work on your blog. I enjoy reading you inspirational posts.
April 21, 2012 at 10:51 pm
I am going with Jenny. I like the first one. I like seeing passion with the chance to turn into a brawl and then back into passion. I am contrary!
Great flashes, Tess.
April 22, 2012 at 7:55 am
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
April 22, 2012 at 8:12 am
LOL! Stop by my place for K is for Keirsey and find out. Unless you want a much more storied look, at which point I suggest R if for Rorschach! I have been testing the M3 Readers lately. The results have been a scream!
