Roses and Candy

She spurned his advances
for the longest time, but
he proved to be diligent
in his pursuit and
devoted in his affection.

Roses and candy and
persistence in the
gentlemanly arts was
eventually able to persuade
her of his charms.

High expectations led to issues —
turns out he was an
amateur as a lover…
but it was a skill she
was willing to nurture.

Something lighter than usual (for me) for Three Word Wednesday.

  2. Phew, sounds like it all worked out in the end.

  3. Sometimes being an amateur is a good thing, especially if he is trainable.

  4. And the practising is such fun!

  5. At least he is trainable. LOL

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
