“Count the stars,”

Banner 1

DAY 12

Scarcely visible in the evening twilight, Ray reached and held his wife’s hand. “L’amour de ma vie, je t’aime.”

Diana caressed his knuckles with her long fingers and smiled. “I love you too,”

“I love you more,”

“How much?”

He looked up at the sky. “Count the stars when they come out tonight.”

He’s not one for dancing, but …

DAY 10

… he could move to the beat and keep the rhythm in his feet although dancing was not his thing.

There’s a bottle of his favorite Grey Goose vodka dangling from between his fingers when his beautiful wife of ten years put on that Annie Lennox song and beckon him to come closer. He doesn’t have the willpower to say no.

Her small, dainty hands rest on his waist as his comes up to wrap around her warm body enveloping her in his embrace, the bottle pressing cold against the small of her back as ocean blue eyes stared into honey-colored orbs.

Jessicia softly sang along to the song as her strong husband led her across their living room floor, the bottle somehow still in his hand. There was no need for words. Marcus dancing in time with her was all she needed to hear. And when he gracefully leaned in to kiss her, abruptly cutting off her singing, she wants to stay like this: just them, their bare feet moving in time with the music.

^ Playing catch-up is becoming hard, but I won’t let up. 

^ The Annie Lennox song is ‘Why’.

^ This week’s random inspiration photo was the inspiration behind this one.

Sustained

DAY 8

He was trying really hard to restrain himself, but when the judge called ‘Sustained,’ for the fourth time, Marcus lost it.

“Sustained? Lady, are you crazy? My client never–“

“Order in the court, Mr. –“

“No, I won’t be quiet! You’ve been nothing, but bias in your handling of this case since day one. Don’t take me for a fool.”

“Mr. da Díxon, you will be held in contempt of the–“

“I don’t care, lady,” the French lawyer dismissed the judge with a flick of his wrist, causing the jury to gasp in one accord. “I know the prosecutor here is your friend, so there is no need to pretend.”

His wife’s arms

Banner 1

DAY 5

Ray contently sighed when long limbs lovingly wrap around his tired frame. His wife always seems to be in sync with his wants and needs without him moving his lips to ask. Many times he had wanted to ask her how she did that, but in the quiet stillness of the house, and the rhythmic beating of two hearts as one, he knew the answer. 

She was home.

She was his peace.

He was serenity and she was tranquility.

I have no idea where that came from given that both words obviously mean the same thing, but I am absolutely LOVING Word-High July and I fall in love with each word as I continue to try to catch-up with the challenge. Ray is a character I’ve come to love over the years (yes, he’s old) given that he was my first ever character that I’ve given birth to.
