Sunday Whirl (Wordle #85) presents a list of words that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
Amateur psychologists please note that this is complete fiction.
The words this week are:
affair, wax, forlorn, manic, clash, hewn, find, desire, sand, fuse, drive, fork.
It had been a brief, manic and yet ultimately forlorn affair. A merging of desire, opportunity and sand, of base animal drives on a sultry night beneath a waxing moon; only to find it end in an awkward farewell, full of promises, lightly given and loosely held.
It had started with so much promise earlier that evening. She had seen him standing, talking to a group of men by the buffet table; tall handsome, with classic rough-hewn good looks. She approached the table and picked up a plate from the warmer.
“Can I give you a fork?” he asked?
“Yes, but let’s eat first” she replied with a mischievous look.
“No, what I meant was…”
Too late. The fuse had been lit. In the battle of the sexes, men are hopelessly unprepared for the resulting clash of wills.
Neither tasted their meal.
“Come, let’s go for a walk. I can hear the waves”.
