Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #540

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.

    The Morning After

    The colonial-style bed and breakfast was bustling with discord. Its proprietors, fearful of the spate of libel lawsuits, had already banned the paparazzi from the premises. The agile vultures still managed to snap a few provocative candids of the bickering actress and her extremely handsome companion. If the glass in the side porch window hadn’t been so thick, the freelancing estrays might have heard this exchange:

    She: I thought you said you could perform!
    He: Well, that was before you revealed your ice-cold distaff side.

    She: Leave my sainted mother out of this. My sang froid is my birthright, not a punching bag!
    He: Still, once you showed you could handle the virulent, vicious accusers, I figured I’d let you take on the others.

    She: But, you left my flank exposed!
    He: Heh, and what a lovely piece of flank it was.

    She: I’m serious, Sergio! If we’re going to keep attending these monthly tournaments, you have to focus!
    He: Sorry, love. I’ll bring my A-game, next time. Torches and Pitchforks is my favorite scenario.
