So, another fabulous event from Mr. and Mrs. Blisse is here. It’s time for Blisse Bunnies! The idea is, a bunch of authors get together and post on the theme of new beginnings, and our wonderful readers hop (no pun intended) around from post to post gathering the information they need to be entered into the prize draw. So, without further ado…
New beginnings – a theme that is often ripe in the romance genre; i.e. new relationships, marriage, divorce, having children… the possibilities, for a writer, are endless. I haven’t covered them all, not by a long shot, but I’m getting there! My absolute favourite story about new beginnings is Loose Ends. It’s an erotic romance short story about two people that have known one another for years, but for various reasons have never gotten together. The story is about giving them another chance, a chance at happiness, a chance for a happy ever after. Here’s a snippet:
Soon I remembered why I hadn’t been up for this in the first place. The busybody was driving me up the wall. My face and neck hurt from all the smiling and nodding. Jenny, or whatever her name was, was currently on maternity leave from her (wonderful) job. Her “perfect” husband had stayed home to look after their “delightful” children so she could come to the reunion and see how everyone was getting on. Despite this statement, she hadn’t asked any of us a single question. She was too busy talking about herself.
I zoned out of Jenny’s inane chatter and stared into the middle distance. Suddenly, something moved into my line of sight that snapped me back into the land of the living. Or should I say someone.
“Fuck!” I exclaimed, gaining a disapproving look from Mrs. Busybody and puzzled ones from the girls.
“He’s fucking here!”
