AW Blog Chain - Couldn't Love You More

This month's AbsoluteWrite blog chain theme is Hint Fiction. Hint Fiction is a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story.

If you want an idea of how difficult it is to write this short a story, please note that the two preceding sentences exceed 25 words. Getting the idea?

Below is my story, followed by the entire talented blog crew.

Couldn't Love You More

Her warm brown eyes and sweet-sketched smile.
Your hands on her bare bronze skin.
This poison isn’t painless, but
If I can’t have you…

  5. I like Aimee Laine's addition. It's a shame hint fiction is so bound by rules, huh?

    That said, I want to echo the sentiments of the others too. There's something threatening here, and it's ready to pounce. Well done!

    There are layers within layers, and the more I read it, I see different ways this could go.
