Trifecta Writing Challenge #1: That Wasn't What I Meant


I recently learned about the Trifecta Writing Challenge via a couple of other blogs that I read.  It is a weekly prompt (challenge, if you will) designed to inspire creative writing, and I have always wanted to participate.  This week I actually found the time to do so!  I have always enjoyed writing, and to me actual writing is different than blogging, so I welcomed this opportunity.  

 This week's challenge asked for 33 words in addition to and preceding the phase "that wasn't what I meant."  My response is below.  Enjoy!

The Rebuff
"Love is in the air,"
she mused, stroking her hair.
He smiled and said:
"Don't let it go to your head!"
She gently leaned in, hoping he'd take the hint…
Until he said "Wait, that wasn't what I meant."
