Sue Vincent’s,#Writephoto: Gold

This is the next episode of my on going story prompted each week by the photo on Sue Vincent’s blog Daily Echo.

Rules and Pingback here.


Rachel and Lisa spent a quiet morning on the beach the sound of the waves and the mild weather cleared their heads. 

They talked about their lives, silently by telepathy. Anyone walking along the beach would of seen a pregnant woman and a large pregnant dog/ wolf.

Lisa told Rachel how her husband and been killed by Vampires in a raid about eight months ago. A week later she had discovered she was pregnant. Rachel asked if she hated the Vampires, because she did. Lisa replied that she hated the war more.

Lisa asked Rachel how she could be in love with Mathew if she hated Vampires. It was a trick question really because she had read Rachel’s mind and knew the answer. Rachel told her the truth and their bond grew stronger.

At midday Lisa and Rachel went to the village to get supplies, both were near their time (to give birth) so they had decided to stock up. As Lisa had warned Rachel the locals were afraid of her but they needed her. They showed their fear by avoiding the two and a few hurled insults at them. 

At one point a man spat at them and a woman shout out,”the pregnant bitch has found another pregnant bitch” Lisa ignored the insult but she saw Rachel slow up immediately she told her, “remember ordinary wolves don’t understand humans please ignore them”. Rachel obeyed Lisa and trotted on. They got their supplies and all who looked on would of just seen  the witch and her wolf as they walked home.

That evening they went to the beach to watch the sunset. Lisa marvelled a Rachel’s eyes.. they were the colour of the setting sun, gold. “What is it Rachel” Lisa asked as she watched the warewolf bristle and become alert. 

Rachel answered ” Quick we need to get back to the house now. I am certain that is not a bird on the horizon heading our way out of the sun. Get on my back Lisa I can carry you.” 

Lisa knew immediately  Rachel was right and did as she was told. Rachel ran across the beach carrying Lisa,they got into the house and lock all the doors and windows. 

They looked out at the last rays of the dying sun turn the sky was gold. They saw a lone Vampire circling the beach. 

“Thank you Rachel ” Lisa said. After she drew the curtains and lit fire Lisa hugged Rachel and the two slept soundly,Lisa resting on Rachel’s soft and warm fur.

Outside it was dark inside all was bathed in a glow of gold.

        I’m a big fan of pantsing myself too. πŸ™‚ Feels like my approach to life – making it up as I go along. I guess we just have to trust that out consciousness is going in the right direction. πŸ˜‰

        Or have I got wrong and sent you to adverts ? πŸ’–πŸ˜±

        Nah – you’re good. You just wrote a big, fat, meaty plug for your work instead of trying to build a relationship. Getting to know someone first is the better option. Just saying. πŸ˜‰
        And yeah – I’m smiling.

        Sorry I just answered your question I didn’t realise you wanted a relationship πŸ™ƒ on reflection it’s not like me to plugged myself… Just didn’t see it that way. Smiling too if a tad embarrassed 😱

        So long as we wind up smiling, it’s all good. πŸ˜‰

        Time with friends and family today – out walking, shopping, eating, fixing a computer – that sort of thing. Tried to read a book in between, but kept getting distracted by people talking to me! Hey-ho – life!
        You got some birthdays I presume? πŸ™‚

        Yes two, smart guess 😊

        I know! Seems like I wake up, dash around for a while and then it’s time for bed again! Bring back those endless days of summer we had when we was kids! πŸ™‚
