Colors Galore

"The effect you gave it stole the beauty of the original picture somehow", her words faded in the silence surrounding them that night.

"I like it this way. All black and white".

"I love colors better... All the mesmerizing shades you manage to capture so beautifully in all your pictures".

"So how long have you been seeing him?", words popped out abruptly as though the brain-to-tongue pathway had suddenly misfired.

"Who, Jack? Ohh, I kinda fell for him at first sight in college", she blushed, lost in pleasant thoughts.

The rosy redness warming her soft cheeks, the twinkle of her deep-blue eyes, her fragrant, gorgeous golden locks streaked with copper highlights... So much color in her life, he thought.

As he slowly walked her down the dark alley, he quietly drew a knife out of his pocket and kept it hidden from her view.

"Do you love me?"

"Come on Timmy. You know I've always loved Jack", she couldn't hold back her annoyance.

In one swift take, he plunged the knife into his own belly, collapsing onto the ground in one pile.

"You freak", she shrieked, her eyes bloodshot, as her hands tore the knife out of him; a gaping wound, now soaked in blood was staring in her face.

"I love you Rosy. But without you, there's no color in life anyway."

I love this-how you've created characters who graphically illustrate how color, or lack of color, is synonymous with happiness and unhappiness! Brilliant!

Ooo, yikes - you caught me by surprise. I was expecting a different victim! Nicely done.

It's so true Valerie that gloomy people just don't seem to notice the colorful life all around... Just wanted to bring that out in some form. Am glad you liked it.

How horrifying! On the positive side (I think) at least he didn't go after her instead/also.

September Dreams said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Yeah. Poor guy though, falling for the wrong person. Thanks for reading Janna :)
