Dean is opinionated.
That’s the first point of conflict in our three-week old relationship.
It felt like heaven sharing those precious moments with him, but who doesn’t want to be respected for their worth?
To him, life is choosing between white and black. Either we agree on his points or we don’t.
If he were here on this solitary lawn, he would probably choose the between white and red. But then, there’s the blue.
Through summer’s peep, autumn fell in flecks of grey upon the meadows. I smelt the winds and knew where I belong.
We are again for the Fictioneers’ Cafe, many thanks to the good anchor Rochelle Wisoff Fields who makes it possible for our weekly gathering. Go here, to read more fictions

Opinionated is often just a kinder way of saying rude and self centered. Too many people like that in the world.
We can always choose not to be bugged by their attitude. Thanks for stopping by.
To belong where choices are respected and accepted; like the changing colors of the season… poetic justice? Dean, though doesn’t sound like he reads poetry.
Thanks for stopping by. I made the correction.
You are welcome here!
Yay! I got a pass mark! Thanks dear Celestone!
How are you holding up with summer gone and the boys back to school?
🙂 trust you are doing great!
Good to know where you belong before you sink in too deep. An enjoyable read, Charles.
Glad you made it here!
Nicely done, intertwining nature with human nature. Life has lots of blue and gray as well. I hope she moves on.
Well, we should hope she reaches a compromise. Thanks Perry for being here!
I know Dean.
Then, tell him to always take life with easy. 🙂
Interesting how you linked the photo to the characterization. a nice tale
I am glad you liked it here. Thank you!
Really liked this Charles. Sensitively written. Well done.
It is very kind of you to have beautiful words for this post. Thank you.
This has great pace and rhythm. One of your most well written pieces ever.
Sometimes i think you give me too much credits, but then I know you don’t say what it is not.
Thank you for taking time out to be here.
I love the use of color in this piece. Relationships can be tricky. Lots of give and take and when it’s out of balance there are problems. Nice one.
Your comment is appreciated. Thank you for the encouragement always.
Charles, I echo Rochelle, I really like how you extended the colour theme into grey and the natural world. A good read. 🙂
i love how you interpreted the prompt and the colors. well done 🙂
I like how you contrasted Dean’s black-and-white take on the world, with the narrator’s more poetic view — especially with those “flecks of grey.”
A great interpretation.. I also sense a loss in here.. were there some bad choices in the past…
Intricate, multi-layered story. Really nice.
This is an interesting way to take the picture with the red and white as being extremes and the blue as moderation. Unfortunately, for some people, moderation is an unknown word.
I love how you characterised Dean, and therefore drew a picture of the protagonist, “and there’s blue”, says it all.
