Writing Exercise: A rush of nerves…

This is my response to one of the writing exercises at our last Ink Slingers Guild meeting.  The three words we had to use were:

  • Eloquent
  • Rush
  • Zombie

The below was written in five minutes.

Eliza stared at William as if she were a zombie. She knew that what he had spoken to her must have been eloquent, but she had to admit that she found herself greatly distracted by his beautiful blue eyes that seemed to sparkle in the candlelight. That’s why she was taken by surprise when he took her hand and raised it to his lips and placed a gentle kiss upon it. A rush of nerves made her face flush and she felt a longing that she didn’t understand as she watched him take his leave for the evening.
