As the sun sparkled on the water her paddle dipped purposefully into the lake. With the skill of an avid enthusiast, her J-stroke carried her closer to her destination.
She could see smoke billowing from the chimney atop his cottage as she pictured his frame curled up in his chair, book in one hand and glass of wine in the other. The sun continued its descent into the horizon and the hues speckling the water deepened in their intensity.
She could no longer pretend that her feelings hadn’t changed and he needed to know she was in love with him.

I’ve been to the seaside for the week-end. Divine! So, your prompt this week is:
… as the sun sparkled on the water…
Please make sure you only use 100 words and put a link back to this post so that others can find us! If you are not sure what all this nonsense is about, do read ‘What is 100WCGU?’
The link will close on Sunday 20th April.
Very nice, Susan…is this fiction? Just kidding. 🙂
Haha….I’m pretty confident in a canoe! 😉
I had to google j-stroke. Your post was educational as well as poignant. 🙂
Haha….thank you. I can j-stroke with the best of ’em! 🙂
I enjoyed your 100 wcgu this week, I like your description of rowing towards his house… towards her soulmate. I can picture how the lake looks…. great stuff!
Thank you very much.
Such beautiful imagery! Great post.
I learned something and enjoyed it.
