Cause and effect

 

Out of nowhere, the snow-blizzard hit. It whipped my wrap-around skirt into a frenzy, then whisked it away. Up, up it billowed skywards, baring my fishnet-clad legs to the raging elements... I screamed curses towards the leaden clouds... 

But the winds retaliated, blinded me with my own hair, which snaked across my face, stinging, like the locks of Medusa.

Why did I storm out of that party just because I saw them kissing?


Unusual, for me, to have a flight of fancy that doesn't land on the page as a poem. But thanks to the Sunday Muse for galvanising me into action!

  1. From the title to the wonderful photo editing to the ending that I feel leads to a mystery and sequel. Captivating and wonderful writing Jinksy!! So glad you have been joining us for the Muse!

  3. I love the photo manipulation to make it look like a snowstorm and I can see why she'd be storming out! Great take on the prompt, Jinksy.

    1. Some how it's the altering of images that spurs me to write the words, rather than a given photo - just blame my five years at art college! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. ♥

  4. Bad, unevaluated actions, things happen at parties. The wilder the worse they are. Jealousy flares when liquor flows even when it is a sister/brother kiss, pinch, or wink between old friends. In Texas we have a lot of "at party" shootings. Just like road rage.

    1. Eek! That makes me glad I live in good old Blighty and have never driven a car. Road Rage will never afflict me - and a global pandemic's lockdowns have kept Roadkill to a minimum during the past year, never mind parties, for they too have disappeared. LOL

    1. Feel free to carry on the story post-kiss - I have no idea where it could lead?! I only enjoy introducing characters to my blogpal readers' own imaginations, and leaving the outcome to them...what a lazy Jinksy,eh? *smiles*
