The IncidentHer hazel green eyes glazed over as she watched the television in the trance all too common of children her age. Little brown hands dove in and out of the popcorn bowl, shoveling its contents eagerly into her mouth. She giggled now and then, losing herself in the movie. She frowned, wiping at her nose as an unfamiliar smell wafted into her room. Aria reached for the remote and paused her movie.

One With the RainThe soft drops of rain trickled down her cheeks. Her red hair gradually grew darker, more brown in the wetness of the storm. Freckles of brown mixed with freckles of water droplets as she held her head skyward, nostrils flaring in and out. The smell of rain was soothing, the almighty sign of life was reassuring after her days of death and darkness. And most of all, silence. She had always taken the gentle sounds of rain for granted.

Summer Love Contest!We have seen countless movies and read countless stories about Summer Romances. Because a Summer Romance is quick and usually happens when we least expect it, it can be exciting and leave us in awe. Although Summer love can be thrilling, it can also be harsh and leave us feeling broken and devastated when it ends.Summer Love Contest! by #KnightsOfRomance
#KnightsOfRomance proudly presents it's second contest: "Summer Love"
For this contest I would like you to take the Summer to dig deep into what A quick Romance means to you.

June Contest: 7 Deadly SinsToday is the start of the first contest for TWW It was a unanimous vote for the contest theme. So, the theme for this months contest will be: 7 Deadly Sins.June Contest: 7 Deadly Sins by #TheWritersWareHouse
So, I will need YOU lovely people (yes, every last one of you) to do the following:
-Pick 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins. Only 1 please
-Write about it in any form or fashion you choose (prose and poetry alike)
-However you can't name the sin in the piece itself or in the title. You do have to tell us what you chose in your artist comments. The point is that the reader should be able to know what sin you are writing about without you being obvious about it or naming it. Breaking this rule will result in the submission not being accepted and you will have to make changes before it can be accepted.
-Submit to the Contest Folder In The Gallery
-Pass this contest information around (optional): I am hoping to get a good turnout for this.
Due Date: I will stop accepting submissions on June 30th at Midnight (Central Time).
