It’s time for Friday Fictioneers. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I’ve run out of steam.
I wrote this on Friday evening and even poured a glass of wine for inspiration. Naturally, the wine makes an appearance.
Thanks as always to Rochelle, and to Doug MacIlroy for the stunning photo.

A Sip Away
Tessa had seen every angle of this shiny tower on her way to work, and had imagined the most spectacular view. It fell short. She belonged here as much as her faux designer dress. It would pass for the real thing and her lipstick matched, but the stained, white linen underwhelmed her.
Thomas patted her hand. “Let’s have a nice bottle of wine.”
He sipped and admired her through the delicate contours of his wine glass.
Tessa knew it would be the best vintage that ever touched her lips. One taste could seal their coupledom.
“I can’t,” she said.
