The Music and the Man: #StaD May; Day Two

For Story A Day May, Day Two (click the heading to see the full post with prompt by writer Jerry B. Jenkins).

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

Prompt words: (I can always make use of more!)


  • disco

  • Ferris Wheel


  • hypnotic

  • deep waters

  • lifeline

  • omitted

  • new worlds to conquer

    And now, for today’s story!

The Music and the Man

T’Pol was pulled down through deep waters with no lifeline. She was a child home alone; T’Les was still at the Academy. Images played on her monitor:

A most illogical song about a “Ferris wheel”, and a strange dance called ‘disco’.

Then herself, grown.

Music – hypnotic, like the human male with ocean-blue eyes, smiling at her. “New Worlds to Conquer!” He laughed.

Illogical. It was merely a dream brought forth by her recent research into aspects of humanity omitted in her formal training – their entertainments.

Illogical, to dream it.

But the music and the man still wove through her.

Where is T’Pol?

Who is the man with the ocean-blue eyes?

Why is she hearing music?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
