Without

Malice - Snake

Ignoring the obvious veiled reference to sex, his words landed softly. Ignoring the lustful look, his eyes comforted her. Ignoring the bittersweet memories in her loins, his advances titillated her. Ignoring the knot that immediately rose up in her gut; a tugging she knew all too well, she smiled wantonly. What she couldn’t ignore were the tears streaming down her beautiful face; tears willing to comfort and caress a man who had certainly been through the kind of ordeal that comes not from malice, but from ignorance and a circle of pain that could only be broken by the kind of love that she was willing to give.

This entry is in response to Lillie McFerrin’s weekly challenge to take one word and caress five and only five sentences out of it. This week’s word: malice

  1. More than men, women seem to have such an innate ability to comfort in a storm. Your fine story reminds me to ignore everything that gets in the way of that.

    1. Thank you thank you. I know how you absorb everything; how you don’t let one bit of life pass you by. I appreciate the visit.

    1. Lillie! Hello, and thank you for visiting, reading, and commenting. This piece took me by surprise and spoke unexpected volumes to me as well. I’m glad it touched you as well.

  2. Hey Britt, I’ve been absent for a while, for which I’m sorry. You’ve drawn a picture so quickly here, and I;m glad to have read it. Unconditional love is a wonderful thing. Indigo x
