Fate’s twist… once seen, ever missed.
Six word line/story response to Saturday Six Word Story Prompt (6WSP) #7 – ‘Fate’ for week 12 – 18 October 2019.
Russians digging up ‘his garden’. The Bursar’s doing. No wonder The Dean a little cranky, that is a little more than usual! Footsteps of the Templar, the fourth of the PorterGirl novels, brings once more together; strange Fellows, Porters of all levels, the Heads of much put upon Kitchen and Laundry, the Police, one mounted, one an accomplice to a Wedding, and, the French a new dimension – and did I mention cats, I think I’d better. Yes, Old College as we know it, or think we do, well does anyone, and what do the French have to do with such an English institution? The plot, well stitched, no loose ends, no holes other than, that is, The Bursar’s. Third person narration, we see inside the minds of all, beyond Deputy Head Porter’s perception good as that has always been; we now know what Head Porter is thinking, a certain Headmistress, I didn’t know he had it in him! Lucy Brazier writes with a light, engaging touch; mischievous, at times eccentric, with humour and sensitivity, all beautifully balanced. A class act this author, she’ll have you smiling, beginning to the end, and wanting to read again.
She didn’t like the tone of his silence
a day she’d prefer he didn’t breathe
he’ll not try that hard to please her
takes another glass of her iced tears
Just asking… why’s your shadow blue?
span of years no tears
feelings flow beneath
looking back cold feet
His loss… that someone still unknown

Net curtains, unseen, looking out,
indiscretions, neighbour, opposite,
hot and sweet at 23, in and out,
no man has a key, hardly time for tea,
old, bald, same time every week,
young ginger, first time, flushed,
he seemed pleased, knocked up,
took a risk, moving on next week.
their corner of convenience
boundaries set, unstretched.
Friends don’t do what you do
Six word line/story response to Saturday Six Word Story Prompt (6WSP) #5 – ‘Betrayal’
Half a jar you say
Well… not quite
Full or empty?
No, chance not cliche
Add to or take away?
Wrong idea, wrong concept
Your mistake, must be
Who are you anyway?
