Waft – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Taylor stopped unpacking and opened the window. The scent of honeysuckle wafted into the room on a light, summer breeze, accompanied by the sound of crickets and bringing forth unbidden memories of playing in the field and down by the creek with her childhood best friend, Johnny. She regretted once again never having told him her true feelings before she’d left town. She’d never had the courage to, and had hoped by being away she could have forgotten about him, but he always turned up in her dreams at night. Now she was back home on break from college and finally ready to tell him, but she worried he might not want to see her, since she’d left without even telling him goodbye.

Besides, when she’d called a couple months ago to tell her mom she’d be home for break, she’d heard that Johnny had just started seeing Marnie. Did she even have the right to confess to him at this point? She didn’t even know if he was still seeing her.

She wiped a stray tear from her cheek, turned from the window, and resumed unpacking.

The sound of a distinct knock echoed down the hall from the front door , and Taylor caught her breath and looked up from her suitcase with wide, hopeful eyes. At the sound of Johnny’s voice calling her name excitedly, she grinned and hurried from her room to answer the door.

This is a bit more than a sentence, but as soon as I came up with the sentence for the prompt word “waft”, this whole little story just seemed to develop. And so, here is my entry for this week’s post for Tuesday Use It In A Sentence:

liebster4

 

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award! Wow! How unexpected this is!  Thank you so much to http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com for the nomination. I truly appreciate it. This is my first award here on WordPress, since I’m relatively new here.

Okay, now, let’s see…

The rules for this award are…

2. Display the banner/sticker/logo on your blog
3. Answer the questions the award giver asked

2. If you could change one law, what would it be and why?

-probably repeal “ObamaCare”. I understand the motivations, but I’ve always thought it was silly to force people to pay for insurance when a lot of people still can’t afford it thanks to the bad economy, and it hasn’t really worked out like “they” had hoped it would.

3. What is your favorite movie?

-Oh, I have a lot of movies I love. Casablanca, The Princess Bride, My Cousin Vinny, Monty Python and Holy Grail, Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, etc.

-full-time author 🙂 or something where I can work with animals, probably. cat behaviorist might be interesting.

5. If you could travel to a different time period, when would it be?

6. Do you love zombies, if not why?

-they’re not my favorite, but I don’t hate them. I like some zombie movies, like Resident Evil and World War Z, but for the most part they just don’t catch my interest. I’m more into vampires and ghosts.
