#Writespiration 63 Two Sentence Romance Stories

2 sentence love storyI’ve been snowed under the last couple weeks, and I missed my writespiration. So, two weeks ago was all about complex sentences. This week on the theme of sentence stories, I want you to write a two sentence romance story. Here’s mine:

Tears splashed onto the lily’s as I knelt to place them on mum’s grave, the last thing she’d said was to be free and live my life again, I’d spent too long caring for her instead of me. 

“I buried my mum today too. Do you need a drink as much as I do? there’s a pub round the corner.” said a smooth voice from behind me. I smiled. Mum was forcing me to live.

“Sure.”

What is it with me and cheating? I can’t seem to follow my own rules. But meh, close enough. Besides you never know how inspiration strikes.

Now to the last writespiration entrants

Ali up first this time with a lengthy sentence for us:

I didn’t mean to hurt her; it’s just that I couldn’t imagine how anything I had to say or do would be of any help to anyone, so of course, I immediately said “No,” and, in so doing, that one small word was enough to destroy all her carefully tended hopes and dreams.

Geoff excelled himself with the most complex sentence I’ve ever attempted to read, I’m not sure it even makes sense! :p

Conjugating Grammar
If A is a gerundive exclamation and B is a homonymical verbosity where the root of B is a function of the indicative modal verb, then using as an example CD from the participle conjunction, can you extrapolate the subjunctive relative pronoun to prove that this sentence is complex?

Finally I had a submission from Victoria from theicarusproject.net on twitter.

  1. There is no justice in love, a moment to gasp the sweet air as he brushes past making the hairs on my arms stand up, a small spark jumped across and tingled my soft flesh. Cupids arrow struck, however futile as the ring he wears on his hand proof his heart belongs to another.

  2. I loved your story, sad, but still full of hope. I though that I would try having a go, Here is my attempt:
    Rod held his breath as he concentrated on the task, trying not to inhale the pungent odour that was emanating right in front of his nose.
    Finally, he stood up, wobbling slightly. looked at his pregnant wife, and smiling with satisfaction announced, ” I’ve made quite a good job of your toenails, darling.”

  3. Hee… What fun. Okay. Quick attempt here at a 2 sentence love story. 😀

    “The house is a mess, the kids are driving me crazy, I haven’t even showered today…” she scrubbed at the dinner dishes.

    “The house will get cleaned up and be a mess again, the kids drive me crazy, too, and I’m only here part of the day, and you…” he gazed at her, “you look absolutely beautiful, as always,” he kissed her cheek then grabbed the sponge and took over washing.

  4. I need a creative break. Perfect timing! Here’s my two sentence romance story:

    Her apron prevented grease splatters from staining her calico dress of pink spring roses, but she hardly paid any attention to the sizzling bacon while she watched Hank make his way up the grub line, wearing those thick denims of deep indigo over his muscled thighs and that red and black buffalo plaid flannel.

    Oh, how she desired to wear his clothes, his boots, his wool cap!

    1. I LOVE IT Charli, the imagery in just a few lines. How do you do that? Thank you for participating. I was thinking about you yesterday morning, as your new challenge came in, about how I so desperately want to participate every week and days seem to slip through my finger. Im looking forward to hearing all about your revision NaNo

  5. I like it. You make the rules and you break the rules in a matter of moments! I haven’t seen anyone else break them though. They are not following your example. They are doing what you say, not what you do! Will Geoff repost his conjugating grammar as a love story? Maybe a love of grammar, but who knows what it means?

  6. Here’s mine…

    Their mothers had laboured side by side to bring them into the world, and as the years passed, their light childhood spats and laughter matured into something deeper, compulsive, unwholesome.

    She blossomed, a bright butterfly dancing in gossamer sunlight, tugging him sullen and reclusive in her wake, unaware how his journey took a darker turn until his pain became impossible to ignore, when to her credit, she didn’t falter; steadily, she gripped his hand, and they jumped together.

    1. You never ever fail to produce something heart wrenching I adore this even though I felt sucker punched at the end! stunning as always. I think I will end up running out of things to compliment you on!

  7. Okay Sach, you’ve inspired me. I’m here, on the spot, here it is!

    Slumped over in her chair, she rubbed her eyes in utter exhaustion; wondering if everything she had done for him was even worth it.
    He crept up behind her, massaged her shoulders for a moment, tilted her head up so her eyes met his, and cupped his hands around her face, then kissed her tenderly.
    Elation.

    (Ya I cheated too, lol! ) xo

  8. It was time, the hour and minute hands both positioned where they should be to signify that the time had indeed come so then, they gazed into each other’s eyes, looking deep inside each other to the point where it felt like they were looking at one another’s souls with their heartbeats perfectly synchronised, beating as one; he held her hands, a single tear running down his face, to him, she was his weakness, his Achilles heal, his Kryptonite, she broke down the walls blocking his feelings & set them free, that tear he cried was the proudest tear he’d ever shed. At the same time, she clenched tightly as his hands and her hands were wrapped together as one, to her, he was her strength, her shining light in the darkness, her rock, he empowered her to stop her from feeling weak & with all her might, she firmly grasped his hands with a desire to truly bond in unison, a mutual irresistibility existed between them, a bond that at the right moment would become unbreakable and as they both turned to look at the clock, they knew that that time had come.

  9. “I’ve loved you for the last 60 years and not only can I prove it to you, but nothing or nobody can now stop us.” Paul got down on one knee. “Will you marry me?”

    Three months later they were at last married and nothing or nobody was able to stop them, not even the law. Paul and Michael lived happily after after. <3

    1. AWWWWWWW I LOVE THIS STORY <3 was not expecting it to end that way either – for some reason I have become accustomed to tragic endings from you – I thought one of them was going to die! and then BOOM – a gorge ending – <3
