Love happens.....

This post is a themed writing project challenge taken from Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.

Jenny says we can use UP to 100 words (not including the prompt) to tell our story. It can be fact or fiction. The only restriction is: The prompt must be left intact WHICH MEANS you cannot split up the words in the prompt.

Below is my story, the prompt is in large BOLD italics…

He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake...

that the wish he’d just made was about to come true.

The crush had happened simple enough, a whiff of her perfume, her gentle fingertips guiding his hand.

He didn‘t realize she was married, not that it made any difference in how he felt about her.

The things she’d teach him were lessons that would stay with him for life.

Transfixed for hours, he’d watched as her painted lips formed sounds, ahhhh’s and ohhhh’s.

He loved her, possibly more than he’d ever loved any other woman.

And he didn’t care who knew it.

This kindergarten Casanova was in l.o.v.e....


  1. Casanovas are dangerous!

  2. TOO CUTE! A KG casanova - keep him away from my little least for now it is his teacher he is crushing on!

  3. Love it! Cool way to tease the readers... :)

  4. This was so great. I bet a lot of kindergarten boys feel that way about their teachers lol.

  5. Awwwwe,you had me going. At first I thought juicy! Oulalah, this sounds very taboo! Good one! I love being caught off guard!~Ames

  6. The reason why Love sucks so much : falling in love with a married person .

  7. Oh, how sweet. A little boy with a crush on his kindergarten teacher!
    Best wishes,
    Anna's SC week 21

  8. Really fun! I hope he gets to be teacher's pet...


  9. Ah, that is just beautiful! and a very well written little tale too! Wonderful. :-)

  10. I loved this! You may be writing about my nephew, I hear that he is quite the little ladies man in Florida lol. Kat

  11. I have a grandson who is a 6th grade Casanova. On Facebook, his status changes from 'in a relationship' to 'single' a couple times a day!

  12. Koby! I love you! In a totally inappropriate non-sexual stalking kind of way! Your writing is just so neat.

    Clever, clever use of the prompt.

    You really surprised me here.

  13. That is so cute. I love it. Great job.

  14. Brilliant and original take on the prompt, Koby! I loved this! Excellent!

  15. Oh my gosh! This story is soooo true! Great job!

  16. Very cute! I love that little surprise at the end.

    Visiting from LBS. Hope you've had a great weekend!

  17. Love this! It was such a cute take on the prompt. And I know my son has had quite a few crushes on his teachers so it rings true!

  18. What a sweet take on this prompt, which has seemed to bring out the dark side in a few of us! Hate to disappoint you, but the writing is smart and compact. Maybe "simply" would work better in the third paragraph, though.



Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
