WDYS — We’ll Be Fine

Don’t worry baby, we’ll be just fine. I know your daddy left us, but we can make it — the two of us — together.

We’re better off without him, baby. He’s a real piece of shit. He left me — he left us — before you were born, and you are the best thing that ever happened to me.

We’ve got my mom and dad — your Grammy and Pop Pop — and all of my good friends. They’re here for us. They’ll be around to help out if we need it.

I promise you, sweetie, I’ve got you. You have nothing to fear. We’re in this together and we’re going to be great.

Weekend Writing Prompt — Tenacious

Tina was an investigative reporter for the local newspaper. Her job was to ask probing questions and to get answers from local officials in her dogged pursuit of corruption.

Together with her assigned photographer, she would conduct interviews with council members and was known to occasionally tear one apart with her relentless questioning.

It wasn’t log before Tina’s reputation for rooting out corruption in her home town earned her the nickname, “Tenacious Tina.”

MLMM Photo Challenge — Opposites Attract

You say we are soulmates.
I say we are opposites
You say we see eye-to-eye
I say we sit back-to-back
You try to put me in a box
I want to be outside the box
You say we are better together
I say we are better alone
You say both of us are better than each of us
I say you’re probably right
Opposites attract
