Charmed, I’m sure

three seagulls

Three sisters, coy and genteel, stand demurely in a receiving line. Suitors inspect their potential wifely attributes, mouths watering over their vestal virtues. The siblings, hiding coquettish smiles, snicker at the peacock dance.

The Trifextra challenge this weekend is: 33 words inspired by “Third time’s the charm

    oh yes, the picture is perfect for this. How they do their own dance as they watch the peacocks try to flatter them. Because while the men are the ones thinking they are choosing, it’s fun to know that the women always make the final decision. ;)
