The First Kiss

PROMPT: Quartet

Her long dress flowing behind her while she leaves her dark, cherry chap stick behind on my lips. Her red heels are clicking on the hard-wood floor while she puts her dirty, blond hair into a tight poinytail.

Final Goodbye

PROMPT: Quartet

I'll never forget the taste of her plumb-colored Burt's Bees chapstick, and they way the tips of her split ends made my back itch. When I close my eyes I still see the way her hips swayed and her heels clicked as she walked away for the last time.

High-Heels

PROMPT: Quartet

 I remember the day she left. She flipped her soft brown hair behind her shoulder, and smirked. Her gold eyes twinkling with mischief and intelligence, as she walked backwards out the door. Her heels clicking behind her. 
I still remember the echoing sound of her high-heels as she walked down the hallway from my apartment; it is permanently etched into my mind.

The Sense in Forgetting (Has No Sense at All).

PROMPT: Quartet

The first thing people see about him is lonely gray eyes, a smile that shines like the Fourth of July. The first thing people learn about him is that his name is Robby, that he travels around the country taking photos of nature, and that he is possibly the kindest most loneliest man in the United States of America.

But this is not what he knows of himself.

What Robby knows is this: He is sixty years old, he has...

Harold

PROMPT: Quartet

Every morning, he leaves his condo and always forgets to shut off his bedroom light. When he arrives home in the afternoon, he promises himself that he will turn it off the next day, but never does. It's a vicious cycle. He drives his 2001 Chevrolet Impala to work every day and actually slows down at yellow lights. He stops at a Dunkin Donuts at 8:00 on the dot and orders a large coffee with two creams and a sugar and a...

When Someone Told Her

PROMPT: Quartet

When someone told her to climb a tree, she picked the tallest in the whole forest.
When they told her she would fall, she dangled from her legs and laughed.
When they told her she was stupid, she recited the periodic table.
When they told her to come back down, she leapt from the branches and learned how to fly.

A remarkably normal person

PROMPT: Quartet

Prompt: Quartet

She replayed the previous Olympics nightly, found history a nuisance, danced to Alternative Rock, and often paced in meaningless circles.

A Name Comes to Mind

PROMPT: Quartet

He relished in other peoples misery, but everyone seemed to love his charasmatic personality. His brown hair was the nicest that school had ever seen and his perfectly fake smile could rip a person at the seams.

Swift

PROMPT: Quartet

As swift as the eagle, his hair, cloak and trousers swept over the land, taking nothing more than the blooming flowers at hand.

Zoe G. (United States) published:

The Pied Piper

PROMPT: Quartet

She crossed her legs and sat under the willow tree, her silver flute balanced precariously on her knees. She waited, silent, until the stars flickered on, fuzzy pinpricks of white light. She stood up, picked up her flute, and blew a tentative note into the humid July air. She launched into a melancholy melody, piano, and as she tip-toed through the sleeping town, children slipped from their houses, entranced, to follow her; she smiled.

My Emerald

PROMPT: Quartet

She overlooked her messy, flaming hair and quirky personality. She rough-played with her five friends and let winds carry far her horns, tail, and massive emerald wings.

Girl in the Shadows

PROMPT: Quartet

 
The black clad ninja stood enveloped in the shadows. She didn’t look much like a ninja with her untamed golden curls and stormy blue eyes, but as her master said; beauty is often the disguise of death. But her master wasn’t here; He was dead. She stood listening and waiting, as armed guards clomped around, unaware that danger lurked in the shadows. Timing is everything; her master’s words rang in her ears. She had to be fast and silent...

Details...

PROMPT: Quartet

Headphones rested in her studded ears, a fantasy novel shrouded her contoured face and a baggy hoody masked her beautiful figure. It would take a very keen pair of eyes to notice the sparkling tears in hers, also hidden by thick eyeliner. But who would bother to do that? By all first judgements she was ordinary. That was how she liked it.

Accidents

PROMPT: Quartet

He was beautiful, and he used that to cloak his pain. His tears painted synthetic blue skies, but his smile made mine.

He killed to live, he wanted revenge on the world, his family lived on the streets, no one came when they were dying.

Desk Trapped

PROMPT: Quartet

She doodled stars on the back of her notebook, made worthless paper airplanes from smudgy paper, and dreamed of the day she would leave this town. Looking back, freedom was all she ever wanted.

Secret

PROMPT: Quartet

Allie Skattum

She came to school everyday in the same blue cardigan and light jeans, her nails painted perfect, with no scuffs on her shoes, and her homework all done, her life seemingly perfect. She comes home every night to a messy room, a lonely home, and an absent mother, her life a secret.
