"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."
No, no, it isn't!
Look again, Romeo...
it is Jenny Matlock!
"It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!"
Well, tell her, Romeo...
"She speaks yet she says nothing; what of that?"
She is probably dumbstruck...
"See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O, that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek! "
Keep your hands off of Jenny's cheeks!
I am telling you that her husband and
grandkids would not like that!
"When he bestrides the lazy puffing clouds
And sails upon the bosom of the air."
No way, buddy!
Don't even start thinking
about Jenny's bosom!
That is way off limits!
"Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?"
Romeo, Saturday Centus is not about
listening or speaking...
it is about writing!
You need to write!
"I take thee at thy word."
Well, I hope you do, Buster!
"I do not know not how to tell thee who I am"
We really don't need to know
who you are!
You can even use a fake name here!
Oh, I've got a good one for you!
How about Tybalt?
What? You don't like that name?
"Had I it written, I would tear the word."
Well, after I read it, I might tear it too!
No, I was just kidding...
we don't judge here.
Jenny is very gentle!
"O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?"
Read my lips...
Jenny is taken!
However, you can get satisfied
by reading all this wonderful stories!
"Hence will I to my ghostly sire's close cell,
His help to crave, and my dear hap to tell."
Now please join me

It is a themed writing meme.
Each Saturday, Ms. Matlock will give

Oh, and the prompt words can
be used anywhere in your story!
Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
The writing prompt is good for the entire week,
so you can join in at any time!
THIS WEEK'S PROMPT:
Driving six hours is a long time on the road. Six hours spent singing car-aoke and taking in the picturesque scenery, but mostly reminiscing about the good times. But those days were long gone and my mind was in a different place now. Or was it? My pulse quickened as I passed the road sign which read "Medford 27 miles."
So here is my contribution
to Saturday Centus...
Driving six hours is a long time on the road.
Six hours spent
singing car-aoke and
in the picturesque scenery, but
about the good times.
But those days were
long gone and my mind was in a different place now.
Or was it?
My pulse quickened as I passed the road
sign which read
"Medford 27 miles."
Medford was the center of my universe.
We lived, loved and planted roots there. Our
towheaded children ran
while bravely riding the skirt tails of dust devils
which whirled through the
open arms of
We had been together since the beginning. I couldn't
remember life without
We began as two and
up as a big, loving family.
Then she came along and changed everything.
I had dreamed of this moment for three long years.
I patted the gun nestled
in my lap.
I glanced up.
The road sign read "Hell 2 miles."
Please excuse the unusual format of my story today.
Seems Blogger is playing cruel tricks on me today!
