It’s fun to see what other authors do looking at the same photo for inspiration. I don’t get to read as many of the participants’ tales as I’d like, but I enhjoy what I read.

This week, I once again borrowed Kassidy, hte spunky young widow from the paranormal/urban fantasy novel They All Died Smiling.

Here is the photo prompt:

I shiver in the chill water of a cavern secreted behind the falls.

“Is it time?” I ask Randy…the Universe. But I’m alone. Randy can’t hear or answer. War took him from me. Yet, I feel the warmth of him standing beside me, his arm around my shoulders.

I’m not shivering anymore.

I know what he’ll tell me. He tweaks my nose. “You have to ask?” Then he spins me into a dance hold.

Our wedding song, “I Hope You Dance,” plays in my head.

My tears join the falls.

I dance.

It’s time.

“There you are, Kass.”
