The Other Sort of Need

A different evening, long ago. Sweetness in a silver cup.

“Do you love me?” she asked as she drank, eyes afire.

Ah. A different desire, then; another sort of need. “I will tonight.”

This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge  weekend prompt: write a love story in 33 words.  You are free to interpret that prompt however you wish, but your response must be 33 words exactly.

A little context can be found in a previous post: Need.

    Welcome to Trifecta! This is a brilliant response to the prompt and I love the way that nearly everyone who has commented has taken something a little bit different away with them. To manage that in only 33 words is pretty cool. I hope you’ll join us for the weekday challenge starting on Monday.

    I really like this one! I found your comment appropriate tonight as i read the comments on my own submission. I meant on thing and three people have put their spin on it and I can totally see how they got there even if I did not intend it to be that way.

    Maybe it’s bad form to comment on one’s own post, but I have to say I find the various interpretations of my little love story fascinating, and it reminds me that whatever an author intends to say with her words, it all goes by the wayside as soon as someone else reads it. 🙂
