A relief map

Her closeness raised goosebumps on his skin, a relief map of emotions to explore with her fingertips. Like love letters in Braille, tactile proof of his feelings for her.

His palpable, and insuppressible, response to her had its own effect. Not accustomed to such a visceral reaction from men, she felt her own skin grow hot, Unsettled, she feared he sensed her yearning too.

They danced around each other. Neither admitting their attraction, but neither able to deny it.

Gossips at the water cooler were taking bets on which one would make the first move. Odds were on the topographer.

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Relief.’

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
