She didn’t make much of an impression when we first met, but maybe I was just fooling myself. She was my first real infatuation – the way she spoke, dressed, smelled, her hair. Thoughts of her filled my days. I could smell her perfume – even now, all these years later, I am brought back to the day we first kissed when a hint of her scent enters my nostrils. She seems to be everywhere always. Never gone from my mind.
Stop. Delete that. I’ll begin again. This time, the truth.
When I first saw her, she took my breath away.
For my last post for this challenge, I decided to add a flash fiction piece. My flash fiction and poetry are the most popular types of posts, which makes me so happy. My fiction is actually the best way to get to know me. Take that to mean whatever you’d like.
I’ve combined this challenge with my response to Charli Mills’ Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge.
July 15, 2015 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a breathless moment. Write about life.

I was nominated to take part in this photo challenge by Geoff Le Pard, who tells the most interesting stories and takes us on wonderful walks, as well as the talented and amazing Sacha Black. I nominate Christina Rose of The Wordy Rose to take up this challenge. She’s a talented writer and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with.
The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
