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.

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


    1. 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.
