Tyron’s Wildest Dream

Tyron smacked his lips happily.  The perfect title hit him after two empty hours.  ‘Seven mountains in seven years’, his answer to the challenge: ‘Wildest dreams’.

His finger hovered for a hesitating second longer.  Then, click; the post was published.

The screen changed to Halo.

‘Come to bed, love. It’s late.’

Tyron glanced at his watch; it had been five hours since his post.

The blog screen came up again giving rise to a light flutter in Tyron’s chest.  He clicked on the orange button.  The comment read, ‘Why not just do it?’

Smiling cynically, Tyron typed, ‘Wish I had the time!’

After all my well-meant promises of last week, I still almost missed this week.  Incredible!  Plus I only managed to trim it to 102.  Rusty!

Hope you like it.  Have a nice weekend.

    Hehe to Halo and also the escapism of writing. Seven mountains in seven years does sound doable but a lot of work! Good response to the prompt!

  2. Dear Sandra,

    There must be something I’m not getting with this. Nothing wrong with the writing, though. 😉

      Haha 🙂 that’s ok. It’s all about how we spend our lives sitting at the computer playing games, watching film after film while there’s a whole world out there just waiting for us. As in, if I compress the time I spend watching series after series I’d collect enough hours to complete my whole bucket list… That’s what I tried to convey anyway.

    Do it anyway. We’ll wait and we’ll understand.

    Dear Sandra, Beautiful story – don’t just be a watcher – be a doer? Is that right? I tend to spend an enormous amount of time on the computer but I enjoy learning about stuff – even more than when I went through school as a young woman. Your story is touching! Thanks! Nan 🙂

  5. Sandra. Good story. I feel it’s never too late to be creative and use your gifts. Just do it and don’t look back. I hope Tyron decides what he really wants and takes action if it’s possible. Well written. 🙂 —Susan

  6. nicely done. I find that if I’m bored I go to the computer … Thanks for the reminder to STOP THAT!
