Friday Fictioneers-Wandering Dog and Jagged Rocks


Copyright-Dawn Quyle Landau

The leaves surrounding them were lush, but the dirt path parched and beaten down. Jagged rocks jutted from the ground aside the train tracks made shiny by years of use.

Michaella bent over, tied her boots and released a heavy sigh.

You okay, love? Damon asked.

Nervous as hell.

The hike is going to be great.

She tried not to doubt him as she doused her skin with deet, then rubbed a bit on their dog’s coat.

Damon strapped on her pack, “you lead the way.”

You sure?

Never been more sure in my life, he winked.

    • She’s never stood on her own with him. She’s loved him before and he left, but she’s hoping this time he will stick. By letting her lead the way she knows he’ll stay.

  1. Dear Renee,

    It’s been a while since we’ve rendezvoused with you. Nice to see you here.

    I liked the story, but I’m not sure who’s saying what or if it’s all in her head. There seems to be quite a few quotation marks missing.



    • Dear Rochelle,
      I know it’s not one of my better stories. I guess I should have edited a little better before posting it. lol!
      I’m hoping to write another story this week. I’ve really missed writing.

      Love, Renee

  2. I think he’s lost, and he sure as hell isn’t going to ask for directions. It’s best to let her lead so he can have someone to blame it on. He’s no prince charming.
    Rather cynical today, aren’t I?
