You want power? Try the power of love!
Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
Do You Really Think You Light Up Our Lives?
(Dedicated to our power companies)
Whitney sits by the window as evening arrives. She lights the two lanterns she bought earlier in the day, knowing the power would not be back on soon. She clasps her necklace, humming a small song, feeling her throat vibrate against the back of her palm.
Arnold closes the door behind him, looks forlorn, and whispers, “Still no work…”
He looks up hearing Whitney voice the words that he loves hearing her sing,
“… You light up my life… Give me hope… To carry on… Light up my days…”
He finishes that last line before kissing her, “… And fill my nights with song.” *
* My thanks and apologies to Composer: Joseph Brooks for use of his lyrics to “You Light Up My Life”.
For those of you who have some extra time on your hands, here is the link to my first FF story for this prompt entitled, “You Are So Revered”. A modern retelling of the love and work of Paul Revere!
