Tell Again Tuesday
A blog series where we shamelessly share posts from others that we have enjoyed.
Do you like short stories of various types? Love? Mystery? Murder? All of them? Well we found that this blog hop contained a little something for everyone and it was all based on using three words. Yes, that’s right three words: chocolate, scarf and candle.

Welcome to this week’s Romance Weekly! If you’re here, I hope you came from Susan Scott Shelley’s blog. This is my first attempt at flash fiction. In fact, I had to look up what it actually is. I mean, given the terms “flash” and “fiction,” I could guess, but I wanted to make sure I was doing this right. I actually considered skipping this week, but decided to deviate from my comfort zone. The challenge is to write flash fiction (100-150 words) using the following words: chocolate, scarf and candle.
Sweet mother of God, what have I gotten myself into?
Penny’s from Heaven
I painted my lips cherry red, and styled my blonde curls around my favorite scarf. Smoothing my dress over my hips, I slipped on shiny black sling backs over my black silk stockings. I lit the candle on the nearby table, spiked the champagne with a tranquilizer, and turned down the lights. I always looked best in the soft glow of candlelight, and he’d only get the best from me, at least for a little while. This would be the best night of his life.
