I found this blog today and figured I’d try their Trifextra Challenge. I’m always looking for some good writing exercise in which to engage. The challenge is to “give [us] a complete story in three sentences.”
I attempted to make this an ode to the approaching holiday; to honor lovers everywhere, while bringing to mind the euphoria that accompanies the reward for having bested every obstacle in the path of young love. This is entitled “First Kiss”
Peter waits as Kelly’s lips, poised in a perfect kiss, hesitate just fractions of an inch from his. He braved the torturous deriding of his competition, even a thrashing from her strongest pursuer, Bill Simmons, and conquered the fears and insecurities within his own heart to be under this apple tree, on this secluded hill on the backside of Mr. Hastings’s orchard watching her as she brings her lips to his to reward him. Now his senses explode as his head swims, his heart pounds and he, lost in time and space becomes nothing but lips, tongue, the smell of blossoms and co-mingled bliss!
