Interesting… I just started with “Marci leaned out a window”, and this is what I came up with in five minutes. Isn’t it strange where your mind brings you?
Marci leaned out the window, scanning the ships as they pulled into their dock stations. The Queen Majesty, double masts stretching into the clouds, swept past the docking vessels and moved out into the bay. Along the shoreline children ran, gold and red scarves flying over their heads. Laughter drifted up from the docks as people celebrated the huge vessel’s departure. The city’s long occupation had ended.
She wiped a tear from her cheek and closed her eyes. Freedom was too high a price to pay, when the man you loved sailed for the Queen.

I could have spit when this flash ended. I want to know about Marci and her man. Hope you get to it sometime. . . ?
Wow! What a reaction to this! I might just have something here.
I love how you gave a regal touch to what began as the story of a girl-next-door.
Regal? Hmmmm. I wasn’t thinking regal, but okay 🙂
Your flash fiction sounds like a story blurb to me. Where’s the rest of it? lol Nice job! 🙂
Maybe I’ve just blurbed my way to a new story idea?
I’d say, run with it! 🙂
If I run with anything else I’ll burn out 😦 I need to admit I’m not super woman.
I’m sure it will wait until you have the time. Don’t burn your candle from both ends! 🙂
Jennifer I am pleased that you linked to my blog just not sure why as I don’t see the correlation between your Sails Of Freedom and mine. but again I am pleased and thank you so much!
