Choose



He’d been insistent, she had to make up her mind.


It was him or her, she couldn’t have both.





She loved them both, although she’d only known her for a couple of months.

She wanted and needed them both.



She’d decided -


No way she was having an abortion he’d have to get used to it.

Amazing, beautiful post. I'm so long-winded I'm trying to imagine 55 words, but I'm thinkin' honey!

Hi! Bindi asked me to stop by and see the magic of my award and I was not disappointed. Wow. Thanks and thanks too to all your friends. What amazing comments. I left comments everywhere! I'm so impressed with your blog and your friends. Why didn't I stop by sooner? As I said in one of your previous posts, now that I'm here, I'm not leaving! What a wonderful place.

We'll chat soon. I'll be back. ;)

XO Suze

Tammy said...

Great story! What a neat idea for a weekly meme.

Maggie May said...

Very good story. Not easy I shouldn't think.

Daryl said...

Most excellent use of 55 words .. me, I belong to the Verbose Posters Assoc.

Thank you for stopping by .. I was lucky to be able to say goodbye, to be with her when she passed.

storyteller said...

Alas, I tend to be ‘wordy’ more often than not, and admire your ability to write these brief (yet totally purposeful) illustrated pieces each Friday. Well done! I’ve tried to ‘limit’ my ‘verbosity’ at Sacred Ruminations participating in two ‘poetry challenges’ with limited word counts today … and I’ve added the challenge of ‘haiku’ since it’s a form I love to write in. My Haiku Friday at Small Reflections is a ‘wordy’ as my T-13 there this week ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Tammy, you thinking of joining in?

Not easy no, Maggie but good fun!

Thankyou Daryl and I'm so glad you were able to say goodbye. x

I'm wordy too Storyteller so you can imagine how difficult it is for me to condense everything. :(

Odat said...

Dianne said...

I always expect the unexpected from you akelamalu. and you never disappoint me!

CrazyCath said...

Yet another great story. Your imagination and how you weave the story in only 55 words is evidence of your talent. You manage to build suspense even into this.
Brilliant. Thanks for all your encouragement at mine.

I don't know how you do it. What a big story in just 55 words.

Mona said...

no need to be afraid, sharing your love will not halve it but only redouble it ! :)

Ake, Thank you for your prayers and reiki for me, I feel quite healed , but not all in all( which of course I will soon, God Willing).

Please tell queenie that I mis her an d that she and her mom are in my prayers & thoughts

Mine is up too (btwn)

Mona said...

ps> to fit your playlist in your side bar, just go to the html code in your link and change the size of width to 220.

smarmoofus said...

I love this one! I would've made the same choice. Men who think they can outweigh something so significant deserve to be surprised/disappointed.

Akelamalu said...

I hope it didn't hurt Odat? :(

Thanks Linda x

It must have been very painful for you Snowelf x

I liked her decision too Donnetta :)

I do my best Dianne :)

Glad you enjoyed it Cath :)

Thanks Mimi and of course you know I'll be there!

I enjoy writing them Jennifer and as with anything you enjoy it's not a chore. :)

Good to hear you're feeling better Mona and thanks. I tried changing the width on the playlist but it doesn't seem to have made any difference. :(

You are so right Smarmoofus!
