Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop, which feels like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise TnT fan fiction story, Love and Loss – a hundred words at a time.
I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. If you’d like to add to the pool, list your choices in the comments – bonus points if they don’t sound especially like they’d fit a science fiction story. I love a challenge!
Prompt words appear in bold, and today’s contributors are credited at the end of the post.
One more thing: Standard disclaimer applies. I don’t own these characters or the world they inhabit. They just like whispering and shouting stories into my brain, which I share with you freely, as an act of love.
“Fess up, Trip.”
“Okay. I left T’Pol on Vulcan, crashed Mom’s azaleas, and pickled myself senseless.” He pretended it didn’t slice him up inside.
“No, not that.”
“My guacamole won’t put Chef out of work.” He blended avocado into a creamy matrix in the lopsided handmade bowl. He’d been quite an artisan, as a kid.
“That’s not it, either. I meant this.” Jon set a holo-chip on the counter. Trip was confronted by his younger self as a glittery drag emuquestrian, grinning wider than Jon.
Jon waited, then said, “Well?”
“I confess – the emu made me do it.”
Why was Trip in drag on an emu, and is his guacamole less lopsided than the bowl it’s in?
Today’s words come from:
emu (What can I say? I like emus!)
My Accomplice (Chef Bluebeard):
avocado (because he knows the way to my heart, and it’s avocados!)
Come on back tomorrow, and don’t forget to stop by and see Ritu for the link to more #Loveuary posts,, as well!
