Monique (attymonique) | 2126 comments Hello, loves! It's the first day of the love month; can you feel it in the air? :D

(view spoiler)

I'm going to adopt the introduction to the online article that inspired this meme and ask you to read the following:

"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Six words, but pretty powerful, right? Some say it's the greatest short story ever written, attributed to Hemingway, but no one can truly confirm.

Anyway, we invite you to write your own one-line story. To make it apt for the love month, let's write our one-line love stories. There's no word count limit, but it has to be just one line, okay? The stories don't also have to be based on your own life or personal experiences (view spoiler), although they can be, if you want to and you don't mind sharing your stories. (view spoiler) ;) You're also not limited to just one story: you can write as many one-line love stories as you can, but post them as one post = one love story. At the end of this activity, I'll choose one or two of the best stories, and the writer will earn a shiny, lovely passport sticker (view spoiler) for it. :D

So, recap!
(1) Write a ONE-LINE love story.
(2) It can be as short or as long as you want, for as long as it is only ONE LINE.
(3) Doesn't have to be based on personal experience, but if you prefer to share, go ahead. :)
(4) Write as many stories as you can! Remember though: one post = one story.

For inspiration, you can check out these one-line stories. (view spoiler)

Monique (attymonique) | 2126 comments I guess I have to start, so here we go:

"The words came tumbling out of my mouth with a ferocity that made me shake, but I made sure no sound reached you; I'm just not ready to be alone."

Marie | 295 comments Despite being from different worlds (I'm from Mars, and she's from Venus), I managed to get her facephone number, with a matching smile and seductive winks from her three eyes ("Call me anytime,honey"), prompting an anticipating shiver down my spine and on to my twitching tail.
