TLT: Fruitful

Photo Prompt – © Inma Ibáñez

She’d always dreamed of a fertile union. In her youth she’d painted her lips cherry-red, desperate to attract a partner to fulfill her desires, only to be left with a sour taste as their rot spread through her life. Now her season was waning – maybe it was time to reach for the promised fruit alone.

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales challenge.

    • Thanks, Shaun. Making the decision to reach for your dreams alone is never an easy one. Hopefully she’ll find happiness in her choice. 🙂


    • Thanks, Ali. 🙂 Maybe she’ll find someone once she’s stopped looking, and stopped placing all of her hopes and dreams on her ideal of a perfect relationship and family.

    • Very true. Always relying on someone else to make you happy and to fulfill your dreams is the best way to be miserable. Thanks for visiting. 🙂

  1. Wise words at the end Louise. Lovely take on the lines, a bit heart breaking and sad, but hopeful.

    • Nowadays a woman doesn’t always have to rely on a man to give her what she wants. I’m glad you liked it, Mandi. 🙂
