Woohoo!! Congrats to the other winners and to all the entries - another challenge full of brilliant writing!
I'm thrilled Reg & Jenny touched hearts of so many - thank you!!
Sin and Sunshine
His Jenny’s lips had always been what she called fully dressed.
It had been the first thing he’d noticed about her. Those full lips had been the stuff of Reg’s fantasies for years. Decades.
She’d been wearing Crimson Poppy when they’d met at the Legion dance so long ago.
Peach Perfection on their first official date the very next weekend.
Petal the night he’d proposed.
Ruby Delight on their wedding day.
He’d kissed them all off of her until her lips were bare and she’d laughed and dressed them again.
Which had always meant Reg was kissing her again.
A man would have to be a saint to not kiss those lips when they were in kissing distance. And, as Jenny often told him with a smile, Reg was no saint.
Not when his Jenny was full of sin and sunshine.
What would her lips wear today? Passion Pink or Desert Nights? Ripeness or Luscious?
So many choices.
Colours, shades, shine, texture. He’d become a connoisseur and had his own favourites.
Crimson Poppy. Just like that first dance.
Yes, it was fitting.
Reg packed Crimson Poppy with the clothes Jenny had chosen last week. Then he sucked in a deep breath and held it until his emotions were under control.
His Jenny would go into the eternal with her lips fully dressed.
