Trifecta Challenge: To dry her tears

He grabbed her hand and when she turned to face him he could see small, oval shaped tears drop down upon her lovely face. He took a napkin and wiped them away gently.

    There’s something so sexy about a man wiping away tears. Nicely written.

    He grabs her hand, but gently dries her tears. Interesting choice of words. I sense there’s more beyond this strong ending.

  • Gina

    I agree with Jeanna. Something special and sexy about a caring man. But he grabbed her. Was she trying to walk away? I’m interested to know what came before.

    Keep up the great work buddy!

    How beautiful! Oval shaped tears drop down upon her lovely face. I loved that you used “upon”

    Just droping you a note to say what a pleasure it was meeting you at the Chama Brewery the other night. Just gettin’ around to getting you in phonebook and shortcut for my desktop. Judging from some of the photo, it seems that might have taken a couple of my subjections.GOOD STUFF by the way.

    Am goin’ to sit down over the weekend and actually read the blog. Don’t want to get to far behind. At the moment am tryin’ to get Anatomy of A Serigraph of the ground. Found a person . . . { where else }. . . at the Chama that’s gonna help get it up ‘n’ runnin’ sometime early next week. Will leave comment when it is champagne moment. Address-by-the-way:


    By-the-way, my hot roast beef would leave your Artby’s in the dark. I have 300 years of selected breeding to fall back upon.

    Have a good trip. Wish I could be traveling it with you. But as Frost would say . . . am taking another road less travel by.

    P.S. Stay not too long in the Land of Enchantment . . . the exits have a wierd way of disappearing when you least expected it . . . LOL

      Rein! It was a pleasure to meet you as well! Chama is a cool little place with good beer and better conversations. I will look you up on WordPress and check out what you have going!
      Well, there is nothing like home cooking! Arby’s is just a sinful pleasure I enjoy whenever I am in a state that sells it.
      Trip is going really well so far! Checked out those red cliffs you were telling me about. Colorado is a beautiful place!
      Rein, I look forward to corresponding with you more! New Mexico was pretty wild, I will have to check it out again. Take care buddy and thanks for reading!

      Dearest Caryn,

      Thank you so kindly for your words of encouragement. I believe if we don’t write with our emotions we are just wasting time. Wish you guys were here.
      Love, me

    I liked this one, too. I like how you didn’t give us a ton of the who, what, where, when, and whys. I don’t think many final lines actually do that. You just gave us a hint at what happened. This is strong. Thanks for linking up.
