My Angel Guardian

PROMPT: Illumination

Her once ebony hair turned into white moonlight, her smooth skin now wrinkled with time but her warm chocolate eyes still held a certain glimmer that shone every time she smiled. Her steps once fast and quick are now slow but steady as she strolls past time; gaining wisdom on which she passes onto me.

Story Time

PROMPT: All Talk

"Grandpa? Will you play with me? I've got nothing to do right now, and I know that you can come up with something fun!"

"Alright, Esben. Instead of playing, how about I tell you a story?"

"Ok. What will it be about, Grandpa?"

"Would you like me to tell you the story of a 17 year old boy that saved his king's life?"

Honeymoon

PROMPT: Imagine This

Imagine this. It is noon when my mother and father step off the plane for their honeymoon, with tired but laughing eyes. They sleep in a bed and breakfast where the heater is not running, such that the water freezes their limbs every time they take a shower. In those days, they now tell me, laughing, we didn't have any money. We just booked a plane ticket and packed our bags. 

Not that it mattered.

The Gentleman

PROMPT: Illumination

It was remarkable to even think that there was someone who could radiate all over the way he did with just a smile. The subtle charms he employed were not only of absolute modesty, but of pure innocence; complete unawareness towards the impact his captivating linguistics and actions had upon me.

Wandering eyes

PROMPT: Everyday Magic

Emerald stones with minuscule hazelnut highlights illuminated despite the absence of embers in the stirring fireplace. Gazing into them sparked a bright desire in me that numbed my sensitivity but drew me towards the version of myself I saw in them, how splendid I looked and how I sparkled. Lightly pointed, his nose twitched when I told him how charming he was and his ears brightened red like a ruby that had just been unearthed. Embarrassed as he was, he...

The hospitable corners born from the spine, venturing out to a sudden halt,
open and inviting the explorer in.

The intoxicating scent of a novel, each described by the author in a way that crafts a subjective atmosphere and thrills the newcomer or the visitor;
sea salt "Percy Jackson",
fresh blood "The Odyssey",
dripping chambers "Dracula",
the taste of a cappuccino spilt along the fine edges of "Sense and Sensibility" a good ten years ago when it was first checked out.

Her long black hair flowed down over her deliberately casual outfit. Her clothes were consistently ripped, a representation of her heart after fifteen long years.

He ran down the hall, books slipping out of his hands, his dirty-blonde hair was sticking up at all ends and a proud grin adorned his face. He suddenly came to a halt and directed his hazel eyes at me, then proudly stated, "Guess what JJ! I got an O+ on my math test!"

Hymn of the Anxious

PROMPT: Imagine This

Imagine this: A girl who can't breathe, out of her mind with anxiety. Across the room, a boy watches with concern as she shakes, as she's escorted from the room. The day passes and they see little of each other due to the restriction of different classes. She finds him at the end of the day, at his locker, and she's curled in on her self, wanting to be folded small enough to disappear. "She can't do anything to you."...
