|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!

Sounds interesting. I like these two characters and will be waiting to see what happens :)
Thank you, thank you, you're a kind soul. :-)

Ooooh! I've been wanting more of Morgan and Alice, thank you!
I'm so glad you're interested in Morgan and Alice -- thank you, and I'll try to keep you interested. :-)
Happy Tuesday, in living color!

Not so colourful here, but since it's because of the nice grey cool marine layer, I'm happy.
Thank you, L, thank you twice! And happy Tuesday, too. :-)
OK, hooked already! More, more!
Thank you thank you, more will be coming. :-)
(And I hope your vacation is going well!)
eep, this doesnt sound good. you have me hooked (and a little bit worried).
We shall see where it goes! But Alice's "Oh, no" is justified. :-)
Happy Tuesday, plus gratitude for your reading!
But...what's going to happen next?! :-)
Stuff! Stuff's going to happen next. :-)
Happy Tuesday, Gwynne, plus Darjeeling and cookies.
I have Darjeeling steeping in a cup in front of me, and cookies in the drawer to the left of me! :-)
"Oh, no"? Oh no?! WHAT oh no?!
It shall be revealed! :-)
Thank you, A, plus thanks and a good slide into your Wednesday.
Yay! This is going to be fun.
Just a little diversion -- so I hope it'll be fun, yes. :-)
Thank you thank you, S, and a fab Tuesday night (poss. with ice cream)!
And how did it get to be Tuesday??
And now it's Wednesday. ;-)
Thank you thank you, ALH, for reading, and may it be a good Wednesday for you!
I'll try to keep it going! :-)
Thanks plus thanks for starting with me, E, and a good day to you.
Thank YOU, C, plus thanks and chocolate for kind words. :-)
An intriguing return for those two.
Thank you, Stevie, thank you muchly. :-) A good day to you!
Thank you for loving the bits so far, Rainkatt, and thanks for reading and for you. :-)
