Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays, Delores, from Under The Porch Light, has a meme which she calls

“Words for Wednesday”.

She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, or a poem.

I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story.

It’s a fun challenge…why not join in?

This week's words are:

1. glanced
2. merrily
3. purse
4. indifferent
5. brat
6. blind

Here is my story:

Indifferent to the darkening clouds hovering low, blind to the crowds surging along the storefronts, Amelia stepped merrily from the cab. 
Holding her purse in one hand, she held out her other hand to Quinto, her five year old son, thankful that today, for once, he wasn't being a brat about wearing a suit. In fact he was quite proud to be dressed "like a man, like Zach", he'd said this morning as Amelia tied his tie for him. 
Stepping into the softly lit registry office, Amelia and Quinto both glanced towards the makeshift altar where Zach was waiting with a smile.
They'd met a couple of years ago at a Christmas gathering and Amelia had liked Zach immediately, then had been pleased to find he didn't dump her faster than a hot potato when he found out about Quinto.


  1. How lovely. Long life and happiness to this newly minted family.

  2. Zach Quinto? the new Spock, of course.

    Lovely story about the three melding into a family.

  3. Nice....glad the young lad behaved himeself for the big event.

  4. The brat thought I was as blind as a bat when he glanced at my purse. But I was on to him; I just feigned an indifferent attitude, but merrily I nabbed him in the act!

  5. Good for them both hope they all have a happy life together.

  6. I hope it is a long and happy union for the three of them, as they begin their journey together in life.

  7. A much shorter contribution from you this week but a beautiful loving story and I am sure they will all live happily together.

  8. Elephant's Child; a very long and happy marriage is in store.

    Susan Kane; I wondered if anyone would get that.

    Delores; the youngster really likes this man his mum is marrying.

    Lee; I like that!

    Merle; they do have a happy life.

    Vicki; it's a match made in heaven.

    Mimsie; this one wrote itself.

  9. Hi River,

    I get the sense that it will all work out for the three of them. Interesting choice of names.


  10. klahanie; it works out very well. A rocky moment or two, but that's life.

  11. I also have a good feeling about this. The chemistry between Zach and Quinto seems to be right - and that can be a make or break factor.

    Lovely story, as usual.

  12. Marie; it happens too often that a single mum can't find a new love because the man doesn't want the child. When the chemistry is right, magic happens.
