Fiction Friday ~ Jump

Apr 19, 2013

“So why the big blog announcement?” Will asked gripping the counter. “Why didn’t we discuss it first. I am your fiance, or was, I guess.”

Sarah sat down at the breakfast nook table and took the tea cup in her hands soaking in it’s warmth. She stared out the window into the garden at her mom working in the rose bush flower bed. “I just had to jump in and do it. I knew if we talked, I would never go ahead with it. You know?”

“Yes, I know. Isn’t that the point? Sort of? Isn’t that why you talk things out with those who are important to you, Sarah?” Will had crossed the room and was now leaning on the edge of the table staring into her eyes. “Or am I no longer important to you?”

“You are, Will, but I can’t walk away from this…”

Fiction Friday is for me to have fun and get back in the habit of writing fiction. I hope you enjoy it! To check out the previous installments of this story click here. The first one is at the bottom.

I’m using the Gypsy Mama’s Friday prompts to get me started. Every Friday writers join together at for Five Minute Friday. One word, five minutes, no editing, and no back tracking. Come join the fun!

Do you find it hard to study the Bible?

It doesn’t have to be.

Let me help you learn a technique for studying that makes it simple. Join me as we study one chapter each week and memorize two verses of scripture each month.

You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes in your life.
