Welcome to the Picture it & Write creative writing exercise. I invite people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (please provide a translation). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.

“He what?”

“He broke up with me. I don’t want to talk about it.”

I was shocked. Reaching out, I rubbed my sister’s back. They’d been dating for eight years. We all thought it was taking a while… I’d even considered nominating them for that Hitched or Ditches TV show. Get married or break up. Never thought it would be the latter.

“I’m not a biologically acceptable mate,” my sister told me between shaking sobs.

Thinking she must be joking, I asked her to repeat herself.

“What do you mean?” I asked once she repeated herself. I wanted to think he wouldn’t say that to her. I mean really, biologically unacceptable? What did that even mean?

“I can’t have kids,” she whispered. My hand stopped rubbing her back. It happened years ago. Why would he bring it up now?

“That’s a stupid reason.” I couldn’t help but let my voice raise. If he was going to dump her over that, why lead her on for so long?

“Happens all the time,” my sister sobbed. “Girl likes guy. Guy is gay. Biologically unacceptable.”
