Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #520

This is a writing prompt. Bet you can’t do it! Take the 10 random words below and crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story! And remember: after (if) you finish entering your submission into the comment field, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.) NOTE: Our bolding plugin is gone, so you’ll have to put before and after each of your challenge words if you want them to stand out, but NOT REQUIRED THOUGH! Or, as cleverly done by a CCC-er you can CAPITALIZE the challenge words in your piece.

    Misty tossed the forget-me-nots into the trashcan. She was no mindless, moonstruck teeny-bopper swooning over a heartthrob; Arnold was a horrible flirt who didn’t deserve a minute of her attention.

    Pam slid her chair back, craned her neck into Misty’s space. “Ooh, can I have those? I’m going to visit my dad went I get off. These will save me some time.”

    Misty smirked, “You cheap hussy. You ain’t try’nta save time. Go ahead, but you are going to buy lunch tomorrow.”

    Pam snatched up the blue and white bouquet, muttered a vague promise about Taco Tuesday and disappeared behind the divider. Misty sighed, knowing that the flowers were just the beginning of Arnold’s predictable onslaught. She considered telling him that she already had a suitor, but feared that would only fuel his attempts to win her over.

    The trouble was, Arnold was a handsome devil. He wasn’t conceited, either. Just clueless, graceless and dull as the plastic bow and arrow he’d boldly left next to her coffee cup this morning. She had no idea why he was so smitten with her. She was mindful of her appearance, but she didn’t consider herself glamorous. She stared at her reflection in the dark screen of her laptop. Her eyes twinkled as she playfully waggled her eyebrows. “Come hither, and kiss me, you fool.”

    In the next cubicle, Pam burst out giggling. “You practicing endearments for Arnie?”

    “Shut up, ‘fore I take them flowers back!” Misty chuckled. She sighed again, swiped her track pad and got back to work. Arnold would be over soon enough, probably to release some doves, while professing undying adoration for her.
