30. The moments before we touch

“The honesty’s too much……”  Well that triggered a song in my mind.  Still humming as I search for something intriguing or romantic to write……… about those moments before we touch.

 Yeah Nah – when it comes to touching, I can only think about that ‘C’ thing I don’t want to mention. Sigh – it would be much more creative to write a love story huh?

Instead, you get this moment!

The willow tree was in shadow so deep she couldn’t see her hand in front of her face. She groped sightlessly into the darkness and then in that moment she touched something sticky. Cobwebs clung to her hand.   She shrieked and freaked.  She had always been terrified of spiders.
