Hump Day Kick Start – Jaded Edition

Song of day: In The End by Linkin Park

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

RF Getty jaded

For some reason, I feel like the pressure is on me to provide a great picture this week. Problem is, I can’ t seem to find one that fits my mood, or lives up to the hype and still be ‘legal’.  Maybe I’m just a little jaded like the guy in this prompt because I have loads of great pics in my secret cache of mega hotness that I can’t use.

Speaking of… What’s up with him? Why is he looking away from her? What is she saying to him? That she loves him, and now he’s freaking out? That her mafia husband can never find out about them? That he will do her bidding or else she will have her demons kill the one he really loves?  Is he contemplating how to tell her he must break her heart and leave her because he’s dying? What about her? Maybe it is her who is trying desperately to make him understand she must leave him to protect him. But why? Maybe he just wishes she’d get off so he can watch the football game.

What’s your take? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. If they were on the hood of a Ferrari Aperta, it could be a scene from my novel “Daimones”. It fits perfectly.

    Massimo had me at Ferrari Aperta…wins today automatically, no matter how many respond.

    Well, smart-aleck answers are:
    1)she’s got REALLY bad garlic breath,
    2)he’s staring longingly at the other woman in their swinger party…the one his friend called dibs on first.
    3) the duvet he’s laying on doesn’t cushion the unforgiving wood floor so he has a crick in his neck. Trying not to be a weenie, so he’s still ‘in the game’ but is basically ‘frozen’ in this awkward position.
    4) Or he’s dead, in full rigor and SHE hasn’t figured it out yet.

    May come back later with a story. Still have to return to last Wed–I owe you, haven’t forgotten. (Something about the guy visiting a sex therapist for tips, so he has his camera phone out…Muse is still cloudy on the deets and I think we ALL have learned not to push her.)

    Oh, number two is my favorite, Sarah.
    Your Muse tends to be a bit high-maintenance, sometimes. *smirk* I think you should ply her with more fruity adult beverages.

    Cute girl — thanks, Jenn.
    Okay, here’s their very short story:
    Vonda only recently learned that, due to her heritage & bloodlines, she would (at age 25) turn into a full-fledged vampiress.
    She thought she could get in one more quickie with Ernest before the clock struck midnight and her 25th birthday was formally ushered in.
    Nope … Ernest spent too much time on foreplay. So now the clock is on the 12th chime… and Ernest’s neck is about to become supper.
    Happy birthday, Vonda!

    always happy to oblige, Jenn. The only one that completely fell flat was my long reply to the girl on the train tracks … and that was such a dud because everybody was too busy out partying at conference.

    well it’s only because I poured out my soul in nearly 1000 words to tell y’all about that poor pretty girl stranded on the train tracks …
    Her story nearly made me weep.

    Jenn — so where is this “secret cache of mega hotness” that you can’t use? Maybe I could find a use for some of it.
