Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:
By Tessa Dean January 2021
Today was a mellow day. Thomas and Ginny were stretched out on a beach blanket on the lake out front of the cabin. They were mostly quiet and then Ginny said, “Did you know I wanted to be a ballerina when I grew up?”
Thomas propped himself up on one elbow and looked down at Ginny who was lying there with her eyes closed. “No you never mentioned it to me. Do you still take ballet classes?”
“No I had to hang up my shoes when my mom got sick. She needed me to driver her around and in the beginning she just needed me to take care of her except while I was in school. It wasn’t until she got sicker that we had to bring in the around-the-clock care. Now I have more free time to myself, but I was so out of practice with ballet that it would be too hard for me to get back into shape for it and it does take up a lot of time. I couldn’t have a boyfriend if I was still dancing. I am so glad to have met you that I would hate to have to give you up just to dance. I realized you were more important to me than ballet was. It was a young girl’s dream, but the grown up me wants more out of life. Besides the hard work, ballet is rough on your body and I was starting to actually get old in the ballet world. I don’t think I could have recovered from all those years out of practice.”
“But don’t you miss it?”
“Sometimes, Thomas, but I love you and you’re more important than a pair of ballet shoes.”
“Oh Ginny, I love you too. I can’t wait until we can make our engagement official.”
