100 Word Challenge - Fresh

The following is in response to the 100 Word Challenge authored by the revivified Velvet Verbosity.

His mind went back to a time, when lithe young bodies held each other in slender arms, cradled each other with emotion that protected both of them from any thought of danger, harm, future or commitment. They wrapped each other in the arms of young love, flowering love, the bright bloom of that love blinding them to naught but each other. The keening in their chests for each other, the yearning in their loins for each other, drowning out the voice of concern for where they might be, who might see, who would hear. A time when love was fresh.

This is the second post on this day, Sunday. This post means that Monday's post will come late in the day. Short-lived. A 'Nothing' post. And then Tuesday's post will come at 12:01 AM Tuesday morning. And so will subsequent posts - 12:01 AM. That way I will be sure to publish the next episode on time.

You would like that, right?

Ahhhh, a dose of Lou every day - and sometimes, on time.

I'll be back.

Young love is nice, but it's been a while. Could your next 100 word challenge be a little on the pornographic side?

I'm just kidding (sorta)

Alice said...

It was lovely to visit around the net for the day and come and read this. Ahhh...

Melissa said...

Excuse me. Must find my husband now. :)

Christy said...

Nice work, as usual....young love....I used to be a love addict, and when I read that, I know what it means.

I just never liked it to mature......so "fresh" is all I wanted.

Fresh. I'll be remembering this one.....

Eve Grey said...

I would love to go back to that time.

Eric S. said...

WOW, I'm speechless.

Mike said...

You''re always up for these 100 word challenges. I hope this isn't feeling like work to you. Well done.

Nicole said...

Sweet 100 words - brings back memories :)

Tash said...

Another great 100 words Lou!

Looking forward to the Kid's next episode.

Off on holiday tomorrow but will check in as often as I can...

ps - thanks for your kind words about the 'story'

eric s: Thanks. I fixed that link, BTW.

tash: have a fun trip. And thank you, too.

I remember when it was that way with my husband and I. Now, it is more like hurry, hurry before one of the babies cry. I miss those days.

Beautiful!

Elizabeth said...

"...the yearning in their loins "

*snickers* You said loins.

;)

Patsy said...

One hundred beautiful words. Great way to start the day.

Earlier: I got a chuckle out of what you said on my post *Super-Size That?* With three sisters over weight we could be called the Butt sisters. Would love to hear that routine. :) Thanks for the laugh.

Sandy C. said...

Oh Lou, this brought a tear to my eyes today. Your 100 words brought me right back to when I met Dadisodes. So beautiful ans sweet. Missing him dearly today.

Employee No. 3699 said...

Ah yes, young love. Sigh!

moneythoughts said...

Nicely written. At 65, I am happy where I am. Yes, we were all young once, but for me living it once was enough. That time moves on, is what makes that time so special.

Loralee Choate said...

This almost, ALMOST made me want to go back to the days of being that young.

ALMOST.

Hyphen Mama said...

Echoing warriorwitch's words...

LceeL said...

conversemomma: Get a babysitter, take him to a motel, and remember.

elizabeth: Well, I WAS limited to 100 words.

patsy: I remembered where that came from - the song "Troglodytes".

Sandy C: Glad I could help? That WAS a help, right?

employee: Sigh. Yes. Old love ain't so bad, either.

moneythoughts: Yes. But it IS nice reliving those thoughts and feelings - knowing, that if we knew then what we know now .....

loralee: I'll try harder next time .. no pun intended.

hyphen mama: Just which of those words are we talking about??

maggie's mind said...

Ah, beautifully captured in your words, the mostly indescribable fresh young love feeling. Nice.

Tara R. said...

That was beautiful! Very nicely done. I need to go hugs Hubs now... thanks!

Shadow said...

young love. the innocence. everything so new and fresh and never-been-done-before. beautiful!

Patsy said...

I've now joined in the attemps to write thanks to you --- I've posted 100 words on Fresh. Not as steamy as yours, but something to muse over. :)

Allison said...

Brings me back...

But then, I think we can still recapture all that fun ;-) Kids or not. :-) It just takes practice...

I can't wait to catch up on 3 weeks of blogs...what fun! :-)

Velvet Verbosity said...

ah yes...addictive that feeling. Some people literally become addicted to it, it's so powerful.
