100-Word Challenge: Prefer

This is my response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge: Prefer.

Swaying soundlessly on the porch swing, sipping her sweet tea, she watched the sun slowly slip below the horizon.  She hoped it would bring some relief from the scorching summer heat she’d felt stalking her all day. 

“I swan,” she declared, delicately peeling the bodice from her damp bosom and fanning herself with the wedding program she’d picked up at the ceremony.  “I might just melt right here!  How could a sane person even consider an outdoor wedding this time of year?”

 “Perhaps you’d prefer a funeral,” Miles smirked, raising an eyebrow. “At least then, you wouldn’t have to dance.”


  1. Hmmmm. You mean you DON"T dance at funerals? Who knew?

    I like this 100 words - you draw a great word picture.

  2. Fabulous! The whole 100 words were packed, but grounded. Very nice.

  4. Very well written- I could feel the porch swing moving.


Thoughts? I would love to hear from you.
