Welcome back to Wednesday! It certainly feels like hump day. I'm down to just 4.5 weeks until my wedding and I'm really feeling the stress. Luckily, my bachelorette party was this weekend and my awesome girls got me a massage. But back to real world. I need this prompt to lift my mood! Let's get started...
Prompt Forty-One- Fuming Waves
Write a story that incorporates, "the shore fumed at the waves." Either the idea or the actual sentence itself. Your choice. Free write, just go with it!
We walked side by side, hand in hand onto the white sand beach. The water was swishing in the distance, it's melodic waves strumming our own personal song. I looked to my left and saw my husband just barely through the blanket of darkness.
His lighter features and sandy blonde hair fit him perfectly. I remember when we first met, that was what initially attracted me to him. I always went for the dark men with dark features, but Kevin had something only he holds and I just can't quite articulate it.
Kevin stops and sits down in the sand. His perfectly tailored suit probably getting ruined from the damp ground. I contemplate whether I should sit or not, not wanting to dirty my dress, but honestly, who wears their wedding dress again.
I sit beside my husband in utter contentment. He wraps his arm around my shoulder and tugs me close to his body. The heat radiates off him in waves similar to those thrumming in the ocean. It's intoxicating, but also very simple.
When people think of waves, they think of their power and grace. The waves tonight aren't angry. They don't fume at the shore, relentlessly crashing on the sand only to pull away and do it again. They're loving waves tonight. Caressing the shore, massaging and turning it up and down and sideways. The waves kiss the shore with each fold.
And with that thought, I turn my face towards my perfect husband and kiss his perfectly shaven cheek. He grins, the lines emerging on his cheeks and I kiss each one, because I never want to forget this moment. I never want to forget the night the waves made love to the shore.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
