Time for Friday Fictioneers. This week was a challenge for me. So to refresh everyone the goal is to write a 100-word story inspired by a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. Click the link below my story to read other writer’s creations. Enjoy!

Dazzling him from the first moment she’d stolen his heart. Today he’d do it. He’d muster the courage and approach her. “Excuse me” barely cleared his throat.
Leaning over the counter she languidly pointed. His head swimming; dizzily intoxicated by her perfume. Removing the aquamarine diamond encrusted pendant he placed it about her neck. Watching it billow upon her chest silently musing these jewels pale in comparison to the sparkling brilliance of those azure eyes.
Tenderly she stroked his cheek purring “Thank you”. Turning towards the platform, Putty her only thought. Minutes passed before, wits regained, Tom realized what happened.
Word count: 100

Ahh…I didn’t understand at first that he actually worked there. Wow, I can understand someone getting a little dizzy in the sight of some sparkling azure eyes, but this guy really needs a bit of a wake up call. Nice job.
He does indeed need a wake up call. He was far to easily manipulated. I fear he needs better taste in women.
She should hang onto him. I hear good Putty is hard to find.
indeed it is.
At least he fell for her azure eyes and not the pendant in the cleavage… maybe she should have kept him…
So true! I’m afraid they are both idiots in this tale.
Tom needs to learn not to give his heart away so quickly. Hmm…wonder where I can find this guy and dazzle him with my azure eyes…drat, they’re brown. Oh well.
Brown would work just as well. Tom is a slow learner. He is in hot water after the jewelry heist but I hear he has a brother.
Thanks for reading Rochelle and providing the weekly challenge.
Ha ha, love it 🙂
Too late, Tom. But sometimes there is no defence against women. We men are by definition simply putty.
Yes poor Tom. He was defenseless. She had woven her web about him.
Yes, we are and always have been. great story.
Not quite this badly I suspect. Thanks for reading Doug.
This guy should NOT be working in a jewelry store! (Or standing anywhere near a jewelry counter.)
Indeed he should not! One can only conclude he is the owner’s son.
Where can I find this man? I could use some new sparklies 😉
I fear he lives only in fiction. 😉
OMG…he is WAY too easy! lol
Truly! He is an insult to men everywhere. 😉
