Weekend Writing Prompt — Wanton

“Be my guest,” my mother said to me, “and throw your life away with that wanton woman. Who am I to rain on your parade? If you want to be a nincompoop and not bide your mother, that’s your choice.”

“Mom,” I said, “I love how she can be sensual one minute and demure the next.”

My dad just smiled.

(Exactly 60 words)

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “wanton.”

Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (guest), MMA Storytime (rain), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (nincompoop), and Your Daily Word Prompt (bide).

    Oh, yeah! demure and wanton…the eternal opposites that lure.
