Let’s face it, we’ve all had a crush at some point in our lives.
Maybe it was that one girl who always smiled at you in that weird way in the lunch room. Or, for the ladies, maybe it was that one guy who would always go out of his way to do nice things for you, but he never asked for anything in return. We’ve all got our own secret crush stories, and even stories that we only wished would happen.
Today’s prompt is to either tell one of those, or to just make one up from scratch.
Because, after all, those kinds of stories can be fun and they might give you butterflies in your stomach. …Or make you throw up. Whatever happens to you and your character when they git bit by the love bug! Lol
Perhaps your main character gets a huge bouquet of roses left at their doorstep for weeks on end. Maybe they swear to themselves that they’ll find out who’s leaving them. Maybe they already did so and they haven’t managed to find out after weeks of looking around.
Or, maybe you’re the dude that’s leaving the roses and being as sneaky as you can because you told yourself that a thousand roses was the only way you could get an in with the girl of your dreams. That with every rose, you earned the right to an extra second with her once she finally caught you. After all, getting caught is the entire reason of being a secret admirer!
This prompt is free to use however you will, and I’d love to see what you come up with on InklingsFiction!
