A big round of applause for Priceless Joy and Dawn M. Miller for presenting this challenge and photo, respectively.
Living Easy with Eyes Wide Shut
Her motherly fat suit consumed her once slim figure.
His Hollywood smile was now crooked from one too many fights.
Layers of foundation caked on her face.
His big belly hung over his old race belt.
She shifted in her daughter’s old dress and wiped her eyes, smudging the black eyeliner.
He sat beside her on the porch and ignored the sweat glistening on his receding hairline.
The wind chimes hanging above tinkled in the breeze. The melody lit up their minds, but their memories scattered like raving delinquents running from cops.
“I’m still waiting for that letter you promised.”
“We both know I would’ve said anything.”
“You used me.”
“You let me.”
“What the hell is this? Why are you here?”
“I was hoping you could tell me.”
I didn’t add dialogue tags on purpose. I left it open for readers to decide who said what, then for them to go back and imagine the opposite. ^_^
