I urge 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 (provide a translation please ). 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.
“Why do you read that rubbish?” I asked her as I got ready to have breakfast with my mother.
She shrugged and her dark hair slipped, exposing her bare shoulder. I felt drawn to her skin and yearned to taste. She was so beautiful. How could someone so perfect have chosen me? I finished buttoning my shirt and crawled up to her to kiss her shoulder. She smiled a little and flipped the page to another attractive, air-brushed model. I looked to the page and then to her face. When she looked at me, I turned away. I jumped out of the bed and grabbed my bag.
“What? You’re annoyed at me for not answering?”
“I don’t look like those guys, Basheera.”
She held my gaze. “I love you. I love your body. I want your body.”
I stood there in the silence and then shrugged. “Doesn’t matter. I’ll see you tonight.” And I left.
