You’ll see that several of these stories will be heavily influenced by what I’m reading, writing, watching, or listening to (commutes are now dedicated to podcasts). This one derived from catching up on Blindspot apparently. 😎
Prompt: A Couple of a Cruise
Words: nosy, sponsor, passenger, willing, smile, brew, yellow, neighbor, hundred, stairwell
We ducked into the stairwell just as our neighbor bounced out of her room. It was petty, I know, but she’s nosy and bouncy and always smiling. It made both of us crazy. And you know what? Passenger cruise liners? Not a big as one might think, especially when you’re trying to avoid a certain someone.
“I heard the elevator ding,” Scott said, tickling my ear with his breath. “It’s probably safe.”
“Are you willing to risk it?” I asked.
“We should count to a hundred to make sure, right, Remi?”
I smiled. “Probably safest.”
There are many ways to mark that kind of time without getting bored. It was a pleasant respite. When we once more emerged from the stairwell the corridor was empty. We slipped into our cabin and locked the door behind us. It was a large cabin, way nicer than we should have but our trip was “sponsored”.
“We need to clean the bathroom before the maids show up,” Scott said, pulling off his shirt and digging into the bag on the luggage rack. “It should be yellow, not…”
“The gloves are in the top zipper. And we can make it more…orange. Like the sunset. Then to the luau? These jobs always make me hungry.”
“Whatever you want, Remi.”
