❦Ocean Between Us ~ 3❦

My Daydream

“So, tell me about your heritage.” He says this with the kindest smile. My knees weaken, of course.

“There’s nothing to tell.” I inform him of this as though it’s sacrosanct.

I’m mad at him, anyway. And, I find myself sulking as I take off my heels and pull my hair loose from it’s combs.


I’ve been denied my little way recently and it has me positively hissing inside. I have questions, you know. Questions that have been politely dodged, which, of course, I must respect.

“Are you sure?” He smiles, dazzling me yet again.

“Yes!” I snap, a little louder than I intended.

There’s that cloud in his eyes again. I wanna run to him and console him, but I just stare, instead, challenging him with tiny flickers of burning coal in my eyes.

“I’m pretty sure I told you we were dunzo, anyway.” He hates that word, him being a man with an actual vocabulary.

He frowns, momentarily fulfilling my power-hungry pyrhhic streak.

“You’re tough, my darling, I’ll give you that. But you can’t get rid of me that easily. I’m not gonna leave you like all those other…boys did when they got tired of your little games.” He bristles at his own (surprising!) sarcasm.

Another secret smile plays across my satisfied lips as I head away from him, to the stairwell. But, it’s a satisfaction I won’t be sharing with him anytime soon, hehe! 😈

My reality?

I grab another plank of flooring and head to the table saw. 😎

*long, deep sigh*

Sometimes my daydreams take on a life of their own. I feel you. Every day…❥

  1. “I got my eyes on you, you’re everything that I see
    I want your hot love and emotion endlessly
    I can’t get over you, you left your mark on me…” -Drake

    beautifully imagery. you set the scene perfectly!

      1. Haha, in caps, David? 😈
        A composite….it’s my term to denote an amalgamation, a fusion of sorts. A synthesis of fiction and snippets of reality, melded together, interacting…swirly and fluid. 💖

  2. Okay, I’ll be the first to say it. You SAYYYYYYYY this is micro-FICTION. but I thinks it’s more of a microcosm. 😇😘😋

      1. Did you ever see “Top Gun”? Every time you say “you, shut up” it makes me think of Slider from that movie. 😉 by the by, this was a lovely little story. Cute when you pout! Lol!

  3. Kara,
    You zero right in on those little moments between people, shedding light on that which most tend to want to conceal. But you make even little punishments look sweet and tender. Have you considered writing a romance novel? Your intellect adds an appealing layer not found in that genre. Something to think about. Hard not to imagine “you” in this scenario! It was a lovely read! 😊

    1. Very wonderful feedback, Chad. I appreciate you. No, I’ve not considered a novel! The blog is a social hobby of mine. My passions in life lie elsewhere! I do admire those whom engage in the enormous undertaking of book writing. It’s not an easy feat, to be sure! Thanks for such a thoughtful comment! Hugs, ~K

  4. I love how you transition from daydreaming to reality, like my Julie… and “dunzo” – LOL! That’s great. You really ought to do more fiction. You’re a reeeally good writer, have I told you that? 👍👍❤❤

    1. Yes, David, thank you. Julie’s imagination is the thing I connect with most about her. Her reality is a little less seductive than mine, however! 😇😊

      1. Oh dear Kara. You’re so kind. There IS so much to see and experience. I feel I may not experience all that I desire in this lifetime. Life is full of amazing sights and sounds, joys that surpass the heartaches and stress, peace that passes all understanding. Maybe, just maybe, we who have the opportunity can share some of the beauty and joy we experience. I mean – why keep it inside, right? Thanks and hugs. 😊💕
