Jack nudged Annie gently. “Wake up, darling,” he said. “Come see the snowfall.”
“Jack,” she mumbled. “No. It’s dark out, and cold.”
“It’s not dark,” he answered. “The moonlight on the snow … it sparkles.”
“Well,” said Annie. “Now I know you’re mad. Sparkles. Ha!” Jack reached out his hand. Annie took it and rose. He held out her coat and helped her into it.
They walked hand in hand as Jack guided Annie to the edge of the yard by the boat dock where he had placed a small box. He knelt. Annie gasped and cried, “Yes, Jack. Yes!”
100 words. Fiction. Feedback is always appreciated. Comments of any kind really — so long as they are related to the post.
To fellow Fictioneers: I missed almost everything last week. I did a poor job reading. Please accept my apology. I’m sorry. Life and time did not cooperate. I will do better this week.
