08:51 am - Paragraphs-at-a-Time Story, "Home and Glamour", Part 1
So, I've been thinking about playing with another paragraphs-at-a-time story, and, well...

Let's take Morgan and Alice Stonewood, those characters I sketched out in earlier vignettes, and see what happens if...

Well. Let's just see what happens.

On the theme of "home and glamour..."

..............

The hot morning wind blows over the arbor, stirs the leaves and vines entwined there, swirls down to pass between the two people at the breakfast table below.

Principal Morgan Stonewood is dressed for summertime, in loose shirt and jeans and bare feet; Ms Alice Stonewood has left her bank-manager jacket on the back of her chair, and the glimmering necklace she wears catches and releases the sunlight everywhere.

"More tea, my heart?" Morgan says, the brown pot already poised over Alice's cup.

But Alice isn't listening -- at least, not to Morgan. Between one breath and the next she has stilled into attention, into marble. She has tasted what's on the wind.

"Oh, no," she whispers.
................

To be continued, a few paragraphs at a time, almost every day, til we're done. ;-)

May your winds be fair, may your day be light!
